Day 1 - Popcorn?
So my plan was to become a Cali-girl as well, but I figured I'd need to deviate from the list a bit, as probably not every item on it would be feasible for me and I already had some ideas that I might not be able to incorporate in the list. I didn't expect it happening on the first day however.
With no popcorn around the house and all the stores closed because it's new year's day, I decided to go for a Dutch New Year's Eve treat called "oliebollen". Basically they are deep fried lumps of dough with raisins in them. These are in a state as they are commonly found in The Netherlands: on the morning (okay, okay, afternoon) of January 1st, surrounded by empty bottles of champagne.
