Red cabbage with fried herring on monday
This lovely couple were busy cooking red cabbage. It's a tradition to eat it on monday with fried herring or fish. In the large and poor families you didn't have your own plate. You were all sitting around the table and eat directly out of of the pan. There was a little bowl (see picture) with some fat, you could dip in your food. But when family came from outside Spakenburg they used those nice plates, but only for the guests. It tasted very well.
