Nancy's Dutch Treat
Nance, husband Mac and son Nate are back from a spring break outing to The Netherlands. While there she ate herring. Quite a bit of it.
Pickled herring with onions. Deep fried herring. Whole herring (pictured above) which she lowered into her mouth while it screamed for mercy. Herring Bun (a great pattern for a man's suit). She also learned a new word.
Smacklekker (SHMAK-lecker) Literal translation: "smack delicious," yummy, the best. It's fun to say. And even though we know its true meaning, would be even more fun to yell out the window at that jerk who cut you off on I-5.
Besides herring 18 ways, Nancy also enjoyed what she called "the best frites evah!"
And plenty of beer to go with all that salty fish and fries
