We're getting at the end of July. The kiddies got full and busy days playing, crafting, shouting and just being silly. The challenge lies ahead as we still have a month to go before "la rentrée": inventing activities, sightseeing, ... Any ideas of activities to do in Belgium ?
We went for Belgian culinary and tradition must. Our Highness took a belgian waffle "revisité" and Little Mowgli fell in love with a giant ice cream cone. (The separation was painful, tears and stamping were involved).
There are two kind of Belgian waffles: gaufre de Liège and gaufre de Bruxelles.
1st one is a waffle from Liège. A heavy consistency with pearl sugar, it gets caramelized when baked as it should be.
2nd one is a waffle from Brussels. A light consistency that you eat with icing sugar. However, with time you get variant version : with chocolate, with whipped cream, etc.
Here (in the picture), we stand halfway between the 2 version : not with pearl sugar, heavier consistency than Brussels waffle. Original packaging but the taste is not there.
Little Mowgli chose a traditional vanilla ice cream. And fell in love with a sandwich.
