Essen! (Mini Food Edition)

two things to note: the fantastic array of bikes in the background, and the fabulous dump of garnishes and mustard on the big fat bratwurst! nur 1Euro. lecker! you just grab your plain bun and bratwurst from the counter and pile on as much gunk and pickles as you want. this one hails from aegidiimarkt, muenster.

malaga- first of many Eis in Deutschland. this was at our first sit down 'meal' together in Duesseldorf. look at pei shan's bubblegum blue Eis in the background.

our lil picnic on our First Major Cycling Expedition! lovingly home made sandwiches of dunkelbrot, salami, schinken, kaese spread with honig. took us half an hour to chew through the bread.

first big Nachtessen with the Holtmanns: after barbequeing every kind of meat you can think of (three types of bratwurst- brown, brown and grey, pork, beef, chicken, the most tender white fish), what better way to end than a dessert of ERDBEEREN! vanilla ice cream is made for strawberries. note the generous helping of strawberries :D

okay. this isnt really our food. but blonde girl, holding german bier, pommes frites and bratwurst, wearing germany colours against backdrop of halftime deutschland/argentinien match- whoo.

a very Happy Donnerstag- when we went to help a local farmer 'harvest' his erdbeeren- i guess we loaded at least 15-20kg? not counting the ones we frantically ate there. sun, fresh wind, fields stretching as far as the eye can see, fruits and friends. sehr spass.

mein typische Fruhstuek! note: ample supply of cheese, hams, good solid brot. and erdbeeren. medicine not part of meal.

such a long piece of candy- had to get this junk food :P

when hungry and looking for a cheap healthy snack- turn to the biggest pretzel in your nearest baekerei!

another picture of erdbeeren to represent the many that we ate. blink*

at the galleria kaufhaus supermarkt in muenster's prinzipalmarkt. die wurst- impressive.

not part of the speisekarte:

come to think of it- did anyone have duck in germany?
here are non-edible ducks at a lake of a schloss southeast (?) of muenster- on an excursion to Ruhrgebiet.

before all the above, this Kuchen was spotted in a duesseldorf baekerei...

and all happiness broke loose as we found the coolest, cleanest daisied grass to sit on (where was it?). what is a meal without a good setting? was a memorable lunch with our first erdbeeren-binge, on our Happy Field. the cake itself is the epitome of lecker. note: two boxes of strawberries- nur 80Euro cents each.
