Nicole- Tomorrow I'm making yummy Cauliflower soup from this recipe on Amy Karol's Angry Chicken blog. There is no meat involved so the worm has to go! ;) The worm is actually called 'Beessie' and I got a couple of these when I did my grocery shopping this morning. Orange is the Dutch National Colour and next week the Football (that is Soccer for the American readers) World Championship starts. Football is an important thing over here!


  1. Sounds yummy girls!! Nicole, Beessie looks a little shocked to be included in this post. Remind him it's meatless and then find him a comfy spot on the sofa to watch the game!!

    ps- I like the new look. : )

  2. Lol Beessie is still unharmed so he will be able to watch the games with us! :)
