Beside the usual street food offerings, a variety of other food carts were offering their wares because of the Christmas Market (which was sadly more like a flea market selling most of the same items you could find in the souvenir shops). These included freshly fried potato chips (yum), honey wine or mead (eh, so so), giant chicken kabobs (J enjoyed these), plum pies, a variety of sausages, big hunks of ham roasting away, langoše (deep fried dough with pizza like toppings- very yummy), and the famous Trdlo or trdelník.
There doesn’t need to be any cause for celebration for this dancing to occur, but in this case I’m dancing in celebration of my newest purchase. Fun little Christmas gifts for my kitchen that we’ve picked up on vacation topped off by these two fabulous silicone spatulas. These beautiful works of kitchen art with nice hefty wooden handles, an asymmetrical design for scraping and scooping and are heat resistant to 600F! Be still my beating heart!! Not to mention, they make fantastic air drumsticks…
Also on this vacation I got not one but TWO bottles of real vanilla extract (apparently that’s got some alcohol in it so they don’t sell it where I live in the Middle East so I have to stock up when I’m in countries that does sell it). Also grabbed some coffee extract, because I thought that sounded like a tasty treat in the making. I also picked up a little cookbook called “The Best Czech Recipes”, a kitchen planner with handy conversions and some interesting recipes and a real kitchen timer with a hefty magnet to hold it to the oven. On the last day at the Christmas Market in Munich, I picked up a little wooden kitchen angel (kitschy, I know, but very cute!) and a cookie cutter in the shape of a puppy paw too! Hooray for kitchen Christmas gifts! BTW don’t you fret, I got a a real Christmas gift from J as well, a deliciously soft leather Burberry tote that I could just hug and squeeze!
So, now, back to my dancing!
