How about salad for a change? This one has lots of flavor and texture. Cheese, too, so you can’t go wrong giving it a try.
Since we have some Dutch cheese in the recipe how about a goofy Dutch video?

You know what? I don’t know anything about Dutch music. I don’t own a single song by any artists from the Netherlands. I think Golden Earring is the only famous band that I can name.
I’ll put Dutch on my ‘music to learn about’ list. In the meantime, how about some songs by Jolie Holland?
Jolie Holland-Old Fashioned Morphine
Jolie Holland-Mexico City
Bettie Serveert! Check ’em out if you haven’t heard. The singer was born in Canada but raised in Holland; the rest of the band is Dutch.
Thanks Jeremy! I just spent awhile going through the videos on their website and I definitely liked what I heard.
If anyone else wants to check out the band:
Love that mexico city song, I have never heard of that Dutch cheese!

I made this for dinner tonight – yum! Our grocery store didn’t have Leerdammer cheese, so I used emmentaler instead which I think is similar and was also yummy. Then I used candied pecans for a special treat and added chicken to make it the main course. Thanks again for a great recipe!
