Today is belgium’s national day (Dutch: Nationale feestdag van België; French: Fête nationale belge) which commemorates the day in 1831 on which Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg swore allegiance to the new Belgian constitution, thus becoming the first king of Belgium.
For breakfast, I had a pearl sugar leigewaffle (which was not very Belgian of me. Waffles are not eaten for breakfast in Belgium, but usually eaten as a snack), a yogurt parfait, and Coffee with a little Godiva:
Fun fact: one thwart as to why we call them “French fries” is that Americans, thinking that they were in France, were served them in French speaking Belgium during WWII.
I also have a bottle of Trappist beer, one of Belgiums most famous enough of their many styles of beer.
And for dessert; a Belgian waffle, or to be more precise, a Brussels Waffle, topped with berries and whipped cream.
I’ve made my bed Belgian, now I must lay in it
