  1. Julie Said,

    Happy 2004 to all …

  2. sue Said,

    Psst ! Marjan ! As you can see, I’m not ( making them myself)

  3. Marjan Said,

    I can see that! Well I really did not do it myself either….I let Gerbrand do it! And they’re lovely!
    Have a nice evening, watching any TV tonight, No Youp eh?

  4. sue Said,

    No, no Youp, alas. We are going to watch those two guys, you know, the one with the hair and those teeth…. hope they don’t talk too fast.

    I tried to watch the news compilation last night on N2, but found it so depressing and upsetting that I went upstairs instead..

    I hope that isn’t another one on tonight. Watching GWB on top of oliebollen could be the death of me.
    You never know.

  5. Karan Said,

    Happy New Year Sue!

    oliebollen look like beignet…are they about the same? Do you know what a beignet is?

  6. sue Said,

    Shhh! Karan ! I had beignets in New Orleans, they are probably the same thing, although I prefer to think of oliebollen as deep fried shot-puts ( or whatever those things are called)!

  7. Marjan Said,

    Lebbis en Jansen! I love those two. But they do talk very fast indeed. I really look forward to watching them and the Kopspijkers-show. Have fun!

  8. kane Said,

    Ahhh, nothing says New Years like fried dough. :)

    Happy New Year, Sue!

  9. sue Said,

    Marjan, you too. Do you know that we have all known each other close to 5 years now ? Isn’t that simply forever in internet terms ?

    Do you ever hear from Jeannine ? I’m so fond of her but we are so much alike that we can never meet up, it seems.

    Maybe this new year, go visit Catherine or something…

    One is, indeed, allowed to dream.

  10. FARRAGO Said,

    Happy 2004.

  11. FARRAGO Said,

    PS: In South Africa we call them “vetkoek”.

  12. Catherine Said,

    A 2 pound doughnut? I think I’m in love!

  13. Daisy Said,

    Yummy! So glad to hear that Your Little Room is still Your Little Room. And if I haven’t done so before, a Happy New Year to you and the family!

  14. melanie Said,

    we’ve done a fried turkey on new year’s before… do you put cinnamon on those? or honey? I’d eat my share for sure!! happy new year Sue

  15. sue Said,

    melanie, you eat them with powdered sugar-

    happy new year to you as well !

  16. Daryl Said,

    I haven’t tried these yet – I tried to muster up the courage to make them for New Years, but I chickened out at the last minute. :)
