Happy New Year!

Fireworks
Nothing to do with Amsterdam :)

There was a huge fireworks display over Amsterdam last night, but not by the city. The people did it themselves. I'm pretty damned certain that last night's fireworks would have been illegal in the US. Very impressive!

We spent the evening with six Dutch people enjoying dinner, champagne, oliebollen and fireworks. I'm spending the morning nursing a touch of a headache and Leïla is trying to sleep in. I think this is going to be the start of a fabulous year for us.

In other news, someone's pointed me to a recipe for homemade Hamburger Helper. I'm definitely going to have to try this on some night that Leïla isn't eating dinner!
