Last day of the year, and for the first time in 10 years we were all together!
Well, not in the morning though. While I was at work, my mom and Gyano were making oliebollen. These are a traditional Dutch New Year’s Eve treat and my brothers brought all the ingredients from the Netherlands so that my mom could cook them and Dutchify our English New Year’s celebration. Oliebollen translates to “oil balls” and are fried balls of dough covered in powdered sugar. Yes, that’s right, they’re delicious and the best companion to champagne.
Yasu took Djamo to a local secondhand bookstore, and he was lost in his own personal heaven exploring 5 floors of books, picking out his many favorites.
But we certainly spend the evening together, partying with friends, bubbles and heaps of oliebollen! Happy New Year!
