homecooked meals across the ocean

Our lovely host feed us two dinners on our first day in Amsterdam, after getting off a 9-hour plane ride and then insisted on making breakfast for us the next day. When she wasn't cooking meals for us, she was asking whether we had eaten yet. It's a good thing we walked everywhere in Amsterdam, or you can be sure we would be 10 pounds heavier when we got back home.
Pan-fried zucchini in olive oil sprinkled with lavender sea and served with scrambled organic eggs from the Farmer's Market courtesy of our host.
Fig salad with sweet balsamic vinegar and crumbled goat cheese and curry shrimp cooked by our lovely host.
The no-seafood version for Andrea, the world's pickiest eater.
Pan-fried zucchini (prepared the same way as above) with prosciutto and French toast. I was trying to make eggs in a blanket... but it didn't turn out that way.
A lazy breakfast: Hawaiian pizza for the night before with scrambled egg on top, green grapes and a cup of chocolate milk. Gobbles approved.

 A simple breakfast: granola with sliced almonds in milk and a bowl of grapes.
