Hello everyone. As you may or may not have read in this post or on Facebook, my laptop is on summer vacation at the Apple Store after crashing on Saturday afternoon. I didn’t have a chance to fully back up all my files but luckily I still had most of my newer blog pics on my camera so I didn’t lose all my beloved pictures. I really hope I’ll be able to pick up my laptop before the end of this week since blogging sans computer is hardly possible but we’ll have to wait and see. I wrote and scheduled this post Sunday afternoon on my mom’s computer so I’d have at least one post this week!
Thanks Jenn for hosting this wonderful foodie party. Be sure to check out the other WIAW posts over at Peas and Crayons.
I’m sorry that I don’t have lots to talk about today but I spent the weekend at home, doing nothing really…I relaxed after my very hard and busy first week as an intern…ha! 😉 Here’s what a typical Sunday looks like around here:
During the summer we love having breakfast on our balcony since the view is quite beautiful and you’ve got to take at advantage of the sun while it’s out since the weather changes quickly from one minute to the next.
So this is what we like to eat for Sunday breakfast. It’s pretty much a standard Austrian breakfast: multigrain bread, different bread rolls, an assortment of spreads and jams (I love my mom’s jams), tea and sometimes we have pastries…this usually depends on who drives to the bakery in the morning. My dad usually buys one or two Nusskipferl (nut crescents) which I quite like 😉 We usually also have some sort of fruit cake that my mom makes.
This is what I had…plate 1: cake, egg, bread roll with jam.
Plate 2: 1/2 walnut pastry and 1/2 bread roll with nutella
Since breakfast tends to be a relaxed affair and we just eat until someone’s ready to clear the table we’re not really hungry for a couple of hours. That’s why Sunday lunch is usually around 2:30pm or 3pm.
Before lunch my dad and I went for another run and after a shower it was already time to eat!
My mom made a absolutely delicious meal: we had walleye (zander) on a tomato-risotto bed with a side of tomato salad. It was incredible!!! I had seconds on the fish, salad and the risotto.
As usual, after lunch we had coffee which was accompanied by another piece of cake!
Unfortunately I don’t have any dinner pics since I wrote this post before driving back to Munich. I really hope I’ll be back soon but I’ll keep you updated via Facebook and Twitter!
