culiblog covergirl marlein overakker slices some clove cheese for our lunch
In the woods near Amsterdam, culiblog covergirl Marlein O. takes a break from mushroom hunting to relax into a moss covered chaise and carve at a piece of clove-studded cheese.

One hour, basket half full
Just one hour into the hunt, and the basket is half-full.

Today it’s raining, giving us another reason to gloat. We’re hoping for rain all weekend and sun during the week to come.
