so anyway, that thursday we had a lovely day getting things for easter such as eggs and ham and bread and wishing that the snow would melt. which it did aswell because the sun was out and the brave daffodils were making their way through the snow.
we also had a lovely dinner at a place nearby where we had a lovely kind of traditional austrian meal because you have to have something like that when you're out in the country right? well I like to use it as an excuse anyway.
basically I just love a day away sometimes and it helps to take my mind off things, and it's especially perfect when I get a lovely meal aswell. can't say no to that.
I'm so happy to tell you that these lovely daffodils now have a much better life without snow and a lot more sunshine. I felt really sorry for them that day.
and this is my lovely austrian meal, I know it's not healthy (although we had a salad which wasn't really worth taking a picture of) but hey, who cares right?
so I had this lovely soup which my dictionary translates me as semolina (ever heard of that word? no? neither have I) dumpling soup or grießnockerl suppe in german. it's basically beef soup with some veg and this lovely dumpling made from wheat semolina (slowly accepting that this word exists) and it's just delicious you should definitely try it if you ever get the chance to, I love this soup even though I'm not usually a huge soup person. and then as a main meal I had this lovely chicken cordon bleu which is basically a wiener schnitzel with ham and cheese in the middle, this came with a slice of lemon (yes please! I need lemon with everything) chips and cranberry sauce (yum yum, also something I could have with every meal). so that was my dinner, and it was really nice, I can only recommend all of it. now I would link you to the place where I had it but when I google it google say:
Your search - steinztalstüberl - did not match any documents.
sooooo, google never says that does it?! well if you ever find yourself in the stainz area (styria, austria) then maybe you'll come across it, if not I might have to come up with a recipe or two.
and to finish it off, of course my dad's cat Levi had to make an appearance because that's just the way she is, cute little thing. I hope you liked my post and me being confused by new words (I learn a new thing every day). and let me know in the comments what you like to do to take your mind off things.
