What's more Dutch than Oliebollen?

Ok droppie sucking, licorice licking, clog wearing, dutch lovers this one's for you.

I went down to Olibollen on Saturday for another good old traditional dutch fest. Now Olibollen is both the name of the annual festival, held at Calvin my old school (pictures soon) AND a dutch fruit donut without a hole (which they sell truckloads of).

I treated Christine to one... and after saying she didn't want one at all she then she ate two... sheesh.

I had 6 and washed them down with a coke. I felt slightly ill. Back in the day I used to pack 12 donuts without feeling it... I must be getting old.

Here's Wombat. He was judging the kids singing competition. I tried to catch him grimacing but he did a good job hiding it.

We finished off the day with Yvonne and Owen's wedding. A real easy going vibe I loved the lack of fuss. Reminded me of my attitude to my own wedding... but maybe that's because I didn't organize it.

You know, I had absolutely no idea Owen and Yvonne were getting married...

Do I count as a "dutch lover"?

I can't make that call.. I'm not dutch enough. However I did go to Calvin (grade 7-12) that has to stand for something.

did they do the "dunk the teacher" thing? That usually goes with the ollibollen rain... ;)

Heidi used to make them on new years eve, she'd make the dough in a big bucket and I think I ate ten that night... couldn't eat anything all the next day, they are too moreish but they do make you a bit ill...

John, I didn't either!
