About Me

Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!


Heaven is in Belgium

Weekend Reflections, In the Soup (Pot) …


James, over at Newton Area Photo hosts a new meme called Weekend Reflections.

This is what James wants us to do:

1)Post a reflection photograph
2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky
3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.
4)Comment on other Weekend reflections participant's blogs.
Feel free to be creative. Remember this meme is for any type of reflection.




I’ve been wondering all week what kind of reflection I would post today.
Dig into my archives or try to find some time to go out and make a new one?
Another photo walk was not a real option, I’m much too busy trying to get everything ready for my trip to the States.
I was busy in my kitchen all day yesterday cooking a couple of my husbands favorite meals for him to enjoy when I’m traveling. That’s when I got this idea. 
I made a little composition around my shiny soup pot, tried a couple of different angles, a couple of different compositions, and this is it!

I gave it my best shot! ( Don’t I always? LOL!)

I'm getting hungry :)!
Awesome reflection shot - I love it!

You're cooking up some tasty reflections! And you're working yourself so hard you are going to need this holiday!

It is probably good that you are arriving here after 5 p.m. It is dark here by 7 p.m. and you can spend your first evening relaxing and recharging for what's to come.

Wow. I love the reflections! Sounds yummy.

I agree with all the positive comments before me. Nice shot, and the food looks good too.

Dimple said...

Very creative, and it looks delicious! Reflections are everywhere, if we only look!
I hope your husband enjoys the meals you are making while you are gone, and that you enjoy your visit to the US.

How creative! I would have to give my pans a good polishing before being able to take a shot like that. :-) Lovely.

kayerj said...

yummy, what a wonderful reflection. I love a nice soup on crisp fall day. I made chili yesterday. It was delish!

Kristi @ Mi Vida Ocupada said...

Cool shot, very creative!

Very nice and very creative. I haven't thought of looking in the kitchen for reflections. Until now. :)

This is great. I love kitchens and cooking. I can almost taste your cooking.

Melli said...

What a YUMMY reflection! I'm going to have to get in on this... eventually. :)

I'm glad I kept reading, I'm a little tired and when I first read this, I saw- "I was busy in my kitchen all day yesterday cooking a couple of my husbands." and I thought, "WHAT?" It is late and I've been at a fashion show downtown for hours. So, I blinked and read it again and got it- cooking food for your husband to eat when you are gone. Ahh. I get it now.

The photo is stunning and clever, as you are.
