The sun has finally decided to come out to play in good old Bavaria, so I’ve been feeling the strong urge to get outside. I’m not fighting it.
Last Friday, my hometown’s annual Spring Fair started, and it still runs until next Sunday. Of course, I had to go! This fair is quite similar to the Oktoberfest, just a lot smaller. But even more fun, because it’s less crowded. Usually.
A day at the fair has to start with the right kind of fuel. I seriously can’t understand people who skip breakfast. I get so cranky when I don’t get regular meals!
There’s so much delicious food at the fair! Most of those treats are far from healthy, but not all of them are that bad. This time I focused on my absolute favorites, to avoid feeling overly stuffed. Corn on the cob is definitely a must-have for me, whenever it’s available.
Special thanks go out to my handsome hand model.
Must-have food item #2 is a thin crepe with apple sauce and cinnamon. It almost burned my hands! That’s why I only have an ‘almost done’ photo for you. Next time I have to ask them to use the galette batter, which is made with buckwheat flour, instead of the standard white wheat batter. Why didn’t I think of this sooner!?
The spice booth is my favorite one at the entire fair, I guess. They have so many amazing teas, herbs, and spices. I want to buy everything! But I mustered up some restraint, and only bought a few fun mixes, that I’m going to share with my Foodie Penpals.
The preparations for the Landshut Wedding are already in full force. This is a really big deal, people! This royal wedding from the year 1475 is re-enacted every four years. It’s on again this summer, from June 28th to July 21st. Come over if you like! It’s fun!
Dinner was a quick one. I was busy preparing some food for the work week, so I wasn’t in the mood to cook an elaborate dinner. I had udon noodles in black been sauce, with a side of roasted broccoli and carrots. Not very pretty, but quite tasty, and incredibly filling! I shared some with my husband because I couldn’t finish that plate.
