Het Stift

Monday morning, (2nd Easter here in the Netherlands) we headed to the flea market in Weerselo. It was very crowded so it was difficult to look at things. There were not many antiques, nothing that really excited me too much, so we didn't stay long. We stopped at this little place in Weerselo that we always say we are going to stop at and never do. I'm so glad we did! Turns out it was a very old convent from the year 1100! Most of the remaining buildings are from the 16th and 17th century due to fires in the 1500's. We ended up having lunch in a converted barn and I had my very favorite Dutch treat, Appelpannekoeken! YUMM! Here is the website, if you are interested - Het Stift.

How fortunate you are to have the opportunity to experience another culture. I have not been to Europe, yet! One day! Keep well and happy quilting!

Lekker! Pannekoeken are so fabulous in so many different flavors, both sweet and savory. Such a wonderful treat. And have you tried Poppertjes? Olliebollen? Great stuff. Happy eating. We spent today with friends telling them of our Dutch adventures. Reading your blog makes me smile.
