Harinkje happen

Vertel me. Wat is er nou Hollandser dan een haring met uitjes bestellen in een viskraam en deze ter plekke te verorberen?

Uiteraard staand aan het sta-tafeltje van de 'visboer'. En natuurlijk op die oer Hollandse manier: pak het maatje bij de staart.

Laat hem even boven je mond bungelen en neem dan een grote hap!

Haring bevat ultragezonde omega 3 vetzuren. Daarmee is het visje goed voor hart- en bloedvaten. De meeste mensen denken dat een maatje rauw wordt gegeten. Dat is echter niet helemaal waar. Het probleem met haring is namelijk zijn houdbaarheid. Een haring bestaat uit circa 20% (gezonde) vetten. In de lucht oxideert haring snel en dat maakt hem ranzig. Een haring moet je dus eigenlijk vangen en eten.

Daarom wordt haring eerst in zout gelegd direct na de vangst om de versheid te garanderen. Dit wordt haring kaken genoemd (schoonmaken, ingewanden verwijderen en pekelen). Dat kaken is nog best een precies werkje. De alvleesklier mag namelijk niet worden verwijderd omdat dit helpt bij het rijpen van de haring! In de zestiende eeuw werd deze vershoud techniek ontdekt en zo ontstond een bloeiende handel in haring in Nederland.

Heel Hollands dus, zo'n harinkje. Maar.... wat denk je dat buitenlanders eigenlijk vinden van onze 'Hollandse Nieuwe'?

Gluing the puzzle
#puzzle #butterfly In a free writing, showed all the puzzle I made recently. This puzzle, however, is so beautiful that I didn't want to take it apart! I decided to start gluing it so I can hang it up. I'm going to show it from the beginning, so like my creative blogs. I start with the box and so I continue until the end result 😊 Let's go puzzle - I fell in love with this puzzle and wanted to order it. It is a puzzle with 1500 pieces, but the size of a puzzle with 1000 pieces. - First you start with the edges and up to that point it was not such a difficult puzzle. Because they are smaller pieces as normal, it turned out to be a 'horror' puzzle. - The colors are everywhere and you just hardly see where a piece belongs now. I had divided the colors into 5 bins, because I totally lost the overview. Here already quite far and luckily I got it off anyway. - To be able to glue a puzzle you need good puzzle glue. I used the glue from Collall and that is really a good glue, which is also quickly dry. - I put parchment paper under the puzzle, because I didn't want it to stick to my table of course. First 2 layers at the top and later 1 layer of glue on the back. - I wanted to stick it on a canvas canvas and of course there is not exactly the right size available. The puzzle is 48x68cm and this canvas is 50x70cm. I therefore first painted the outer edge with acrylic paint black. I didn't like white as a rim. With a regular hobby glue I smeared the canvas and put the puzzle there. Then turned over and pressed well on the canvas, so that the puzzle would sit well on. - And this is then the final result! He's gonna get a place in my hobby room and then I can enjoy it.. It shines more than without the glue, but that actually makes the colors come into its own even better. D e puzzle is for sale at Puzzelmania and the direct link to the puzzle is https://www.puzzlemania.nl/colorful-butterfly-1500-pieces-bluebird It is a really good quality puzzle and I see now that it is even discounted. So if you love challenges and like puzzling, then you should definitely order and make these 😉 By the way, I'm not sponsored by them, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to order it, hence the link shared. It is clear that I took all the pictures myself!

The survival of every day - tip 1
The first tip for the survival of every day is: dare to dream. The harsh reality of every day and the challenges it entails can make you lose your courage. Sometimes other people make our lives miserable; they laugh about your ambitions or warn you of disappointments. 'Dreams are cheating, 'they say. It can make you cynical, but don't fall for that trap! Tell me honestly, do you dare to dream? “Everyone dreams, but not everyone has the same dream. Whoever dreams at night, in the dusty pits of his head, wakes up to discover that that dream meant nothing. Those who dream during the day are dangerous, because they can pursue their dream with their eyes open, to make it come true.” - T.E. Lawrence - You have different kinds of dreams. They can be pure fantasy or very powerful in our reality; your life! Dreams that are not about anything or that inspire us. My encouragement is: go for the second kind. It's the art of dreaming the “dangerous dreams” of daytime. Think big. Think what makes you happy or happy. What if you never had to work again? What does your heart beat faster? What can be so real no longer? It helps me at least once a year to withdraw myself to a quiet place for 1 or 2 days and be busy with these questions. What do I dream of? Where do I want to be in 5 years? Someone once told me: “You overestimate what you can do in a year, but underestimate what you can do in five years.” That helps me not to dream too small, but at the same time be patient. So: write down your dream. Remind yourself, hang it somewhere where you see it every day. Share it with others, and let them remind you. Or share it in the comments below; what is your dream? #survival #tips The tips come from survival expert Bear Grills; the world's best-known survival expert, complemented by my own experiences.
