H is for hapjes, hoeften and helaas pindakaas

Hapjes are bites. So when you take a mouthful of your food it’s called a hapje. And canapes are also called hapjes. It’s used in Dutch much more than I’d expect.

Hoeften is to have, but it can only be used in the negative. So for things you don’t have to do.

Helaas pindakaas literally means unfortunately peanut butter. It’s a common phrase that’s used when something goes wrong and you can’t do anything about the consequence. Generally said along with a shrug of the shoulders.
