I baked my first batch of chocolate chip cookies since moving to Maastricht this week, but it wasn’t just for Dan’s sake. We attended the first ever meeting for a new expat group in Maastricht on Tuesday (which also happened to be Liberation Day here in the Netherlands). It was a lot of fun to socialize with a small group of people. Plus its a great opportunity for expats to share information about resources and generally just help each other out. AiMS is on Facebook if you are an American expat and interested in checking us out.
The cookies themselves turned out very good despite a lack of vanilla extract, baking soda, and chocolate chips. It turns out I can buy those thing at the Asian grocery stores (except the chips; I have to make them myself), so I expect the next batch to be even better.
