G is for...
Groot (big), gaaf (cool), gek (crazy), geloof (faith), groente (vegetables ... hmmmmmm), grillen (to grill), gebakken groente (baked vegetables), gerst (wheat), gevulde speculaas (filled speculaas, last one is kind of cookie).

But G also stands for Groen (it's not easy being Green). Me like to colour Green. Reminds me of Kermit!

Dutch Alphabet - 7



Me loves Mondays. It is a great day to talk about Dutch words and Dutch treats in me Dutch Alphabet.

F stands for Feest (party). And you can have all kinds of goodies at parties. Like chocolat, chips, cookies... chocolat chip cookies... yummie crisps or liqourice (dropjes). When you are at a party, sometimes you get a Feestmaaltijd (partymeal).

Also nice with a F is Fruit. Me likes fruit, yes in Dutch and English it is the same word! Apples, pears, grapes... melon and all kinds of berries.

Me like letter F...

Dutch Alphabet - 6



Me is here again with another delicious letter from the Dutch Alphabet.
Part 6 is about the letter E.

E is for Ei (egg) and erwten (peas).
With Erwten they make a soup called: erwtensoep (peasoup).
If you like thick soup made from peas and different parts of pork meat, then you might like it.
Eten (eating) starts with an E too...

Me likes to eat cookies... mjam.

Well, that's it for the E, me's getting hungry for scrambled eggs on toast...

See ya next week, for the letter F.

In the Netherlands there is a very small town called Madurodam.
You can visit every Dutch landmark in one afternoon.
You can see the Queen at Prinsjesdag in The Hague.
You can watch a mini zoo.
There is a very small Efteling.
And... yeah... me looked like a GIANT!



Yep... me likes small houses! Especially when the look like they are made of gingerbread...
