Good Morning and Good Tuesday!
I'm linking up with Elizabeth's T for Tuesday blog. Anything drink related is allowed (and not just tea).
So my offering this week is a postcard (of course) with a drink in it.
It says (in German) 'Greetings from Bayern'. Bayern is Bavaria in English. It's from Maria who lives in Muenchen (Munich), the largest city in Bavaria.
The card depicts a Bavarian breakfast. Well, says Maria, call it brunch. Apart from the pretzel, I don't think I would fancy any of that in the morning, would you?
Maria writes that she works at the reception of a Youth Hostel and has done for many years. She is also studying Psychology for a bachelor degree.
The stamps she used are quite nice:
I won't say anything about the tulip but the other stamp that reads Ruhr.2010 – Kulturhauptstadt Europas. It was the name of the campaign in Germany's Ruhr region that earned its recognition as a European Capital of Culture in 2010. This was the first time a region was considered, as Essen represented all 53 towns in the region in the application.
Now that we've had (German) breakfast... how about some ice cream?
Our friends Eusebio and Antonia have an ice cream shop in Baza. He makes the most beautiful Italian ice cream with all natural ingredients. Yumm!
Often we go after church and have an ice cream (and a catch-up chat of course).
This is DH with a lovely ice cream. Eusebio let us look behind the scenes...
He started with a sort of cakey layer that was drenched in liquor. He sprinkled sugar on top.
Then with a hot iron caramelized it in seconds. This was set aside to cool.
Then we moved to the icecream machine and a whole bucket of cream was poured in.
The cake with the caramelized sugar was put in the bottom of a container and then ice cream extruded from the machine on top of it.
Several layers were made this way, very fast as the stuff has to stay cold. (Spot DH with a spoon at the ready to spoon up the 'dregs'!)
The result was this. ('Here is one that I made earlier')
Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is....
So I'll leave you all salivating and I'll be back tomorrow, when I link up with WOYWW.
