Uitsmijter--How Do You Say That In English?

Today my hub and I braved the rainy weather and drove to a "viewing" for an auction coming up next weekend. We weren't particularly impressed by what we saw that will be auctioned, so we went upstairs to the antique shop. Although we did not buy anything, I took some photos of the items for sale. Check out my Wetcreek Museum Blog ( later today for my photos.

On the way back to our apartment, we told our TomTom GPS to avoid the interstate highways, and we traveled miles of wooded 1 1/2 lane roads. We stopped for a late lunch at a cafe/enamelware museum in the forest. Actually it was a recreation spot for families with children, but there was only one family in the cafe. The other two tables were occupied by 60-plussers like us.

This is what I had for lunch:

In Dutch this dish is called an "uitsmijter." It begins with two pieces of bread (NOT toast). I chose brown, since I needed something healthy. ;)))  The next layer is sliced ham. Then sliced cheese. Next three fried eggs (sunny side up). To top it all off, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, and onions! In the top left corner there was a small mixed salad (if you really were thinking healthy).

How yummy was that? YUMMMMMM
My hub HAD to help me finish it.

Now here is his omelet:

Mine looks better, huh? And these plates were HUGE!

Sounds like a fun trip even though the auction preview was a disappointment. Yes, your meal looks yummy. Thank you for visiting my chalkboard kitties and leaving a nice comment. I was a teacher and yes, I do miss my big blackboards! Did you know you are a "no reply" commenter?
