Today I’m thankful for strudel.
I am visiting family. Traffic on the drive here was heavy and chaotic. As soon as I arrived the news announced a number of new disasters that I’m not even sure how to deal with anymore. The world is starting to feel a bit unreal.
We were all a little stressed so we went to a local Germanfest that happened to be going on. Vendors were selling every sort of “-wurst” imaginable. I went for the potato pancakes. They were tasty but a bit small. I was still hungry. Then I saw the strudel tent. They had cheese strudel! I don’t eat meat but I love a good cheese. The pastry was light and flaky but substantial enough to contain the cheese without crumbling. The cheese was creamy and rich but not acidic. The serving was generous. It even made the polka music was more tolerable.Embed from Getty Images
