The Landshut Wedding is still on, which means that there are not only lots of people in medieval costumes running around town every weekend, but there are also dozens of bleachers set up along the main street (Altstadt). Their actual purpose is to provide seating options for the spectators of the wedding procession that takes place every Sunday morning. During the rest of the week, mainly on Friday and Saturday night, the locals like to have picnic parties on those bleachers. And so did we last Saturday!
After getting up on Saturday morning and having my usual breakfast (no picture, you have probably seen enough of my breakfast sandwiches by now), I started making a big pile of vegetable pancakes. I’ve modified my original recipe quite a bit, and I’m very happy with the results. I need to type that one up before I forget what I did.
My husband also made a batch of savory pancakes with pork belly and lots of garlic. Um, yeah, those are even stranger than mine.
We joined our friends on one of the bleachers, and they had also prepared a lot of food. They even provided meat free options for me. Yay!
We had, from top to bottom: pasta salad, mini pizzas, Greek salad, fresh radish, pizza slices, and our pancakes (almost gone already!). Unpictured, but still awesome: seasoned tofu pockets filled with rice (made by me!), and the infamous Rohrnudeln, sweet yeast rolls, freshly made by my best man.
Oh my goodness, so much delicious food!
We were lucky to catch a mini version of the procession, with musicians, guards, and several noble men and women.
And that’s all I have today. I was too busy chatting with my friends and entertaining two little baby girls.
I remember one of our last bleacher picnics eight years ago, where we had a lot less food and got terribly drunk. How things have changed!
What’s your favorite dish to bring to a picnic?
