Weekend Review

Friday night Brent and I tried a new to us Restaurant in Utrrecht.  They had a 3 course menu with many options for your first two course.  I had a sale and enchiladas and Brent had beer battered mushrooms(so good!) and a mixed grill(it was too much for even Brent to eat).  Overall we liked they place and will definitely bring visitors back.

Clearly excited to have his picture taken after dinner.  

On Saturday we headed south to S'-Hertogenbosch, or Den Bosch as most Dutch call it.  It is about a 30 minute train ride from us.  Brent's employee gave us a list of places we should see in the Netherlands and we are gradually making our way through the list.  
The first thing we did when we got there was sample a local treat that they are famous for: Bossche Bol.

This is the bakery where they are made.  People come from hours away just to get these and there is always a line.  Brent and I were lucky to get a table to sit and enjoy ours. 

We shared one since this was before lunch.  This is how they look to start(oh on a side note, all of the iced tea here is sparkling and oh is it tasty!!)

The Bossche ball is a pastry filled with whipped cream and then covered in chocolate.  I have never in my life had anything that tasted so good.  By far the best pastry ever!! 

Clearly we liked it.

The line as we were leaving, seriously people love these!

After enjoying our treat we decided we should probably walk around for awhile.  We walked through the city center where their market was going on and made our way to St. Jacobs Cathedral.

I clearly was struggling to take centered pictures 

What I love about churches in Europe is there is beauty from the ceilings all the way down on to the floor. 

The old pulpit in the center of the church

The church was really nice.  Probably one of the nicest that we have seen outside of Italy.

We didn't spend a ton of time in Den Bosch since the weather wasn't the greatest.  But that is what is great about it being a quick train ride from us!
