Merry Christmas

Greetings from the cold and locked down Netherlands. With Covid showing its ugly face in yet another disguise, we are severely restricted in our comings and goings. Even so, I won’t let little inconveniences like these steal my joy. I shall have myself a merry little Christmas regardless. How about you?

To help raise your spirits, I wrote a little Grimdark Christmas cinquain to get you into a festive mood. I’ve got you covered.

rejoice - a cinquain by Daan Katz

we are
locked down again
and just like last Christmas
we shall meet with all our loved ones

Recipe for Joy

Speaking about spirits… I’ve got the perfect Christmas dessert for you. Let me show you.

It’s fast, festive, decadent, easy and… drumroll, please… healthy! Oh, and did I mention you only need a handful of ingredients?

  • Avocado
  • Bananas
  • Cocoa
  • Baileys (or any other booze of your choice)

Like I said: absolutely perfect!

You’ll find the recipe for this very Boozy ABC Pudding on my sister site Gourmet Spoonie.
