A bit over a week ago I turned 21 years old, that of course had to be celebrated. My parents took me and my boyfriend Chris out to my all-time favorite restaurant in The Netherlands: Pure Passie in ‘s-Gravenzande. Gefeliciteerd means happy birthday in Dutch by the way.The past week it was also time to take my little kitten Gurt to the vet to get his shots. Take a look at my week in pictures and watch out that you don’t drool on your computer!

My birthday make up for the evening
A little amuse on the house made out of a celery mouse, hazelnut crumbles and a radish. Pure Passie uses local products for almost all of their dishes. I wrote more about this restaurant here, and for my Dutch readers: the owner writes a blog too on which he gives you a behind the scenes look into the restaurant. If you go to his blog leave a comment that The Beauty Suitcase send you there!
Mackerel with all sorts of veggies – the waiters explained it a lot better – for starters.
Veal with stoofpeertjes – a Dutch side dish: Wilder Gieseman pears stewed in wine, water, cinnamon and sugar – as our main course.
Another amuse on the house before dessert, made with a lot of delicious things of which I can’t remember the names!
My favorite part of going out to dinner: dessert.
I was secretly hoping for this dessert, but unfortunately it was only included on the a-la-carte menu – we had the three course surprise menu- as it takes to much time to prepare. Picture taken from the Twitter of Pure Passie’s chef and owner.
Later that week little Gurt had to be taken to the vet. Poor thing had no idea what was about to happen and happily crawled in the travel basket I prepared for him.
Happy to be home again! Poor thing started hyper ventilating in the car and the vet said that he even had sweaty paws…
“The best thing about being back home? Sleeping with my adopted mom. I copy her every move!”
Chris got me marzipan for my birthday, because my real birthday present hadn’t arrived yet.
A few days after my birthday he whatsapped me this picture of my real birthday present: Marc Jacobs perfume! It smells so good, I’m debating if I should or shouldn’t post a review since it’s more of a summer scent….
I love watching the SacconeJolys on youtube. They love Peppa Pig and got me hooked to, so I got this Peppa Pig advent calendar. #kidatheart
Signing of with a cute picture of Gurt.
Have a good week!
