Black pudding stuffed chicken breast 

Published September 6, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

Yes that’s right after having it so many times at the pub in the UK I decided it was time for me to make it. 

So I got my chicken breasts at the supermarket. 

Also the black pudding,  I surprised when I found it in the supermarket here. 

So I cut a small pocket in the side of the breast to stuff it with black pudding   

I decided to wrap it in parma ham. 

As you can see below it looks good before it was even cooked. 

I heated the oven to 200 degrees C. Then cook it for 30 minutes. 

It came out really nicely. I don’t usually cook chicken in the oven. So it was something different for me. 

We both really enjoyed it. I even got a review. 

Christopher Tibbs – it was very tasty and I’d have it again. 

My parent’s visit.

Yes my parents came to visit again we decided that we would go to Amsterdam and Rotterdam. 

In Amsterdam we went to the Dungeons. It was a fun day out but we were unable to take photos. We learnt quite a lot of Dutch history. 

Yes I put Christopher in a coffin and he volunteered. 

At lunch we decided to get a typical Dutch lunch of pancakes. I got a Nutella pancake. 

Then my mum gave me a bit of ice cream. 

As you can see I finished it. 

After lunch we decided to go on a canal tour around Amsterdam,  it was interesting how different parts of the city are defined. 

We went on a walk and we found the best shop for game characters and basic geeky stuff. 

The next day we went to Rotterdam. We saw the best boat in the harbour with am octopus on the side. 

We the went for a walk over our usual bridge Erasmusbrug. It gives the best views. 

As you can see the path was sparkly. 

We went to Bagels and Beans for lunch and my dad surprised me he got strawberry juice with his bagel.    

We decided we sounds show some of the sites in Rotterdam. Above and below are the cube houses. 

After this we took them to the church that we have visited several times before it was one of the only churches that survived World War 2 to an extent. It need some rebuilding. 

Flower Parade 

Published August 18, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

That’s right there’s a parade here just to show locally produced flowers in Rijnsburg. They even had some older cars to show too. 

The the parade of the flowers floats started. 

Yes that’s right, there’s Edina, Patsy, Saffron and mother. Absolutely Fabulous is really enjoyed here. 

We loved this one. 

I had to get a picture of Christopher in here somewhere. 

Out started raining so we decided even though it wasn’t the end it seemed like a good time to leave. 

It gently reminded me of the Rose Parade. 

Jam Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Published August 5, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

​I’ve had this recipe for months I keep saying I’m going to make it. 

So I decided that I would make it this week. 


  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 2½ cups quick-cooking oats
  • ¾ cups butter, melted
  • 1 cup blackberry preserves or jam
  • 1 Tbls water (optional)

Above are the ingredients that I used obviously I melted the butter. 

Firstly I put the cake mix into the mixing bowl. 

I then added the the oatmeal. 

Then I added the butter and mixed it together. 

I then pressed half the mix into the dish. 

After adding the jam on top of the mix I then added the remaining mix to the top of the bars. 

I cooked it for 24 minutes at about 180-200 degrees. 

When cooked I cut them into squares. 

After tasting them they were a bit sickly even for me. 

Captured by Pokémon Go. 

Published July 22, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

Well I never thought I’d fall captive to something that all of my friends enthralled 18 years ago and I had no time or place for it. But it caught me. 

Christopher got it on his phone first as he had a UK account through Apple but I had to wait for it to be released into Dutch Androids. 

I know the day it was going to be he told me it was going to be ready in the evening that day. But me being me I decided to try and download it an hour later, so early afternoon I tried it. It worked. 

We decided my Pokémon Go name would be LalaTibbs. 

I thought give it ago. I walk a lot I thought it would make them more interesting. 

I know not a normal place for a fish but does it need a normal place? 

Yes I even gave it a go in my front room. 

Throughout Leiden the places of interest. It’s fun knowing where some of them were which they had picked and it even showed me ones I didn’t know about. 

I thought the one below was both cute and creepy. 

My Weedle wanted to share my lunch too. 

The one below is actually on the street where we live. 

The bottom one is the last one I hatched from an egg. I was like ooooo I’m like a pokémummy lol. 

Noordwijk beach fun 

Published July 17, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

We found out there was an exhibition on the beach of sand sculptures. 

We decided when we got there we would go and take a little walk on the beach. 

We were kind of expecting it to be hot like the week before but no we were wrong. Oh well. 

Christopher needed new sunglasses so he went looking and I went down to the beach. 

I even buried my feet in was having fun very quickly. 

We then decided we should go the sea. 

Then we went searching for the same sculptures, I decided to look online to find out where they were. 

We had a great day out   

New Crafty Time

Published July 3, 2016 by theycallmemrstibbs

I went to my favourite cheap shop as per usual to see what I could get. They usual have loads of craft stuff. 

They had loads of crappy stuff with only dutch instructions. Of course I was like “Arrrggghhh ik spreek geen Nederlands” in English that means “I don’t speak dutch”  

But this one had English instructions! I was like woohoo!  

These are all of the parts for my blue bird. 

I know that was a lot of photos but if I’d have talked about all of them it would have kind of been like “I did this blah, blah, blah” I know you don’t always need that, you could see the progress.
