Our Belgium Meal

Our Belgium meal was Stoofvlees (Flemish Stew), Pommes Frites (French Fries), Flemish SautΓ©ed Brussels Sprouts and Waffles from Liege. All very good even though the Flemish stew doesn’t too appetizing in the picture. My favorite part of the meal was the waffles topped with strawberries and whipped topping! Another leftover I will be eating for breakfast! Yum! During our stay in Belgium in 2017 I had a meal similar to what we made for our global meal. We didn’t realize this until we started looking through pictures from our trip!

Our Belgium Travels

We traveled to Belgium in 2017 as part of a work trip. We stayed in Leuven, home of our dear friend and coworker Jan who gave us a tour of Leuven and Brussels. The castle-like buildings in the town squares were amazing! We stayed at The Forth – Tafelrond that was originally used as a meeting place for different guilds in the city of Leuven. Below are some of the pictures from our trip.
