Fish dish - sauce made with green onion, lemon (both zest and juice) and capers) along wish some vegetable dishes. Very light yet filling.

I have two weeks in NYC this time so more home cooking to do. Our favorite Korean grocery opened near by, not from the heights though, so majority of ingredient was from that store, except meat which we bought at a Japanese one. I used Korean BBQ sauce as base but added my touches. So yummy and no left over this tome.

I am here in the heights this week but still living or at least working in the European time. The sun is not out yet, but it is very quiet time to work. I have some visitors (birds) at my window during this time of year.

After walking around the areas, it was the time for some sweets. This place is famous for their chocolate cake, but we had their daily special instead. Actually a slice of cake came with us for tomorrow...
Since I started this extensive trips to Amsterdam, my body clock has never been adjusted for NY time.
This is me preparing breakfast. A fee things I need to mention. This yellow coffee filter is a great find at the flea market in Cologne. And the matzos on the plate. It is a special bread Jewish eats over passover, which was a few weeks ago. Someone, you know who, gives a box or two every year and I kind of like it. Today I ate it. with home made ANKO, or sweet red bean paste and of course butter.
Finally I am back in the height. It was a long three week trip. Trees are all green and it is one of the best times to be. I was eager to cook something and we ended up with swordfish. Simple sauce made it very refreshing. Love to be in NYC.

It was a very nice weekend trip and I am sure I will do that again when I have a weekend to kill...

I did not know till Friday if I could take a three days weekend and it became reality. This time I drove over 250 km (just under 200 miles) to Cologne in Germany. Very nice hotel again and it is cheaper than the one I usually stay in Haarlem. I am totally spoiled with these nice hotels at least during weekends. Ready for German food.
