Dutch treats!

The Netherlands Bazaar is an event held in Thornhill, Ontario every other year. It's held in a community centre and has loads of Dutch treats, food, a market, textiles, trinkets, gifts, a book table, white elephant table, and a silent auction - all to raise money for charities. Despite getting there a few hours earlier than normal, it was still quite busy. Maybe too busy. Luck was on our side. A parking spot opened up right opposite the entrance. Inside, a table at the cafe opened up next to us just as we were paying for our lunch. Linda bought some tulip bulbs and other stuff. What I bought, I ate. Typical man, I suppose.

Pictured here are (clockwise): broodje kaas (cheese sandwich, a typical Dutch breakfast), a gebakkjes (pastry), two kroketjes/kroketten (croquettes, eaten on their own or squished in a slice of buttered bread, either way with Dutch mustard), a bowl of snert (pronounced "snairt" - is Dutch split pea soup, typically with chunks of bacon or sausage in it - or both) - served on paper plates promoting imported Edam and Gouda cut to look rather like Pac Man - part of the "It won't bite" which has continued for over 30 years.
