I’ve been polishing up my Dutch language skills again. I am very pleased to now know 5 words of Dutch
- winkel (shop)
- wankel (wonky)
- Schiphol (an airport in Amsterdam with a runway so far away from the terminal that it is actually in Belgium)
- binnenband (inner tube)
- Koninginnedag (a pathetically veiled excuse to wear silly orange hats, drink lots of Amstel and crash boats on the canals a joyous day in celebration of the Queen’s birthday)
But I forgot …. I know another Dutch word. I know six now I also know slagroom. A very important Dutch word to know, even though it makes Engels-speaking people giggling when they say it.
- slagroom = whipped cream
- and plain old cream is room
Important to know coz you will be want to put room and/or slagroom on your pannekoeken.
