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

Ruby Tuesday, The Cook and the Stove




Bokrijk Museum Park is more than just any museum. It’s a place where daily life in the 1900’s really comes alive, thanks to the reenactment scenes of the actors and the keepers of the houses. I loved how this lady was cooking a real meal on that old coal stove. It was almost noon and the aromas of baked chicken and apple sauce filled the whole house and made us very hungry!


Ruby Tuesday is hosted by Mary at Work of the Poet.

Apples cooking has the most wonderful aroma.
I had Hubs look at the stove. It's one neither of us is familiar with - interesting.
I can't help wondering about that beautiful red pot. I love the red I've seen for today's kitchens.
The red seems out of place here but it made for a great spot of color in this image!

I live in England and used to sell antiques.A dutchman called France used to sell us stuff from Holland and sometimes stoves similar to that one. Often he had Red enamel pots and kitchen stuff. Takes me back thank you. Don
