Cheese croquettes

If we can’t prepare North Sea shrimp croquettes, we’ll have some cheesy ones. For 24 croquettes, melt 100 grams of butter. Add 100 grams of flour. Bake and stir. Once you smell the typical smell of cookies, add 700 ml of full milk while stirring constantly. Allow to cook for a few minutes. Stop the … More Cheese croquettes

What a great starter!

In the Christmas edition of delicious.nl I find a lot of inspiration for the future visit of Emilie, one of my lovely nieces.

So after a few weeks I decided to collect the organic waste (limited to raw fruit and vegetable waste, egg shells and garden waste). Although we have cats I didn’t … More Pumpkin flowers
