The Gratuitous Food Post

Okay, I’ll let you in on a secret- I actually got home from Germany yesterday.  Yup, a secret among you, me, and anyone who can find me on the Internet.  Due to problems with wifi and some timing issues, I’m not actually done chronicling my journey.  I’m planning to get through a few posts this weekend to make up for that.

Today, thanks to my general jet lag and malaise,  I present: food porn!  Mom, this is a term I did not actually make up. This is an accepted term for gratuitous food pictures.

First sausage of the trip! Get your head out of the gutter, friends.

 

Fresh veggies at the market. Bonus points for albino carrots.

 

Spragel! (I think it is spelled that way?) Anyway, there it is!

 

Rhubarb, which my dad says can kill you.

 

Wine and cheese is always very good looking.

 

Homemade asparagus and avocado pasta, made by Jenny WITH LOVE.

 

Pretzels. Jenny says they don’t count because we ate them in Austria instead of Bavaria.

 

Gelato tastes good in any language.

 

European breakfast: cappuccino and carbs.

 

When was the last time you ate an egg with a yolk this orange? Never.

 

I like that Austrian restaurants assume 2 people can eat 5 pieces of bread.

 

Fancy butters to go with fancy breads. Europe is the best.

 

Are you sensing a theme with asparagus on this trip?

 

Fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast, bread on the side.

 

Nothing says food porn like your first diet coke in days.

 

Mushrooms and some kind of fried gnocchi with ricotta cubes. It was mediocre but looked nice.

 

Spaetzle- German for mac and cheese.

 

More coffee, more cake.

 

You know you’re vacationing with Jenny when you have have vegetarian Italian for dinner. 

 

Good mozzarella and tomato salad? Or best mozzarella and cheese tomato salad?

 

Nothing says food love like a Bloody Mary.

 

You can’t go to Europe without eating knock off Nutella?

 

The trip started with a sausage and ended with it. Gutten appetite!
