Thornwurst! - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Yesterday tascun was over and both she and silber decided that it was a good idea to show me what a good German breakfast was like. I, having never tried certain cheeses and meats or breads this wonderful country has to offer, of course didnt complain. Besides, I'm easily led in ways of the stomach, so anything involving eating is always more than welcome. We went to the grocery store and while at the meat and cheese section, silber told the clerks that hes trying to have his American friend sample various meats and cheeses, to which they were happy to oblige and cut us a few slices of each of the choice items I might not be able to find in the states, including a nice hunk of wild pig pate embedded with berries.

We also grabbed some fresh milk that, get this, has a 3.8% fat percentage. OH GOD YES!!!

On the way home we went to the bakery and got some bread to enjoy our meal with.

And here was the spread as we had it (complete with the Knotts boysenberry jam I brought from the states..mm..the original)

And so we gorged ourselves. I even tried limburger cheese, which, despite what Warner Brothers cartoons suggest, is really not at all bad. In fact its quite delicious and to me, doesn't smell as bad as some of the stronger swiss cheeses. I did manage to try some Hess cheese and oh god oh god that stuff reeks horribly. More for tascun ;P It reminded me vaguely of hairspray, but the rest was positively delightful. Oh and of course I overstuffed myself on raw bacon once again, not to mention the glasses and glasses of fresh fatty milk I glugged down.

Afterwards we did what anyone does on a full stomach...nap! (that sweater Im wearing btw is the German military pullover silber gave me, oooooo)

All in all it was a very fun day, and needless to say that was all I ate, especially since we ate almost the entire spread all in one sitting with just the three of us! We only had a bit of cheese left and just enough goose liver to spread on a little square of bread for breakfast. If only I could eat like a queen everyday ;) Thanks to my German hosts for making this a real culture rich experience!

Current Mood: full full

(I'm Rae, friend of CW's, I read your LJ all the time. LOVE your artwork!!!) Sounds like you're having a great time over there! I remember I tried so many things when I was in France last Spring Break. Hats off to you for trying limburger cheese. I'm not brave enough. The smell turned me off. I love those pants you're wearing in that picture! XD I couldn't pull that off, not with my hugh thighs. XD Seems like you're having a great time! Have fun!

Man that looks tastey. And yeah, the bacon stuff is good, some German flatmates of mine gave us some once. Bit salty for my tastes, but still pretty good. Seen a few spreads like that while visiting hotels in Europe (usually France), and to be honest that looks better than any of the ones they've provided *envies*

Well, thats just because its France after all, they are a cheese nation. Germany is more of a meat nation ;)
kitsuken From: kitsuken Date: December 28th, 2005 05:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Actually even with the cheese you seem to have a better (or at least tastier looking) selection. They were probably avoiding any of the good cheeses because silly tourists like us would complain about it being "off" because of the smell :p

Oh my lord. I hate you. I'm dieting and that all looks SOOOO good. Crap, I need to grab a snack NOW. A good non-gorgeousmeatandcheese snack. Whimper.

Good to know some countries know how to eat ^.^

Whoa nelly... That's A LOT of food... And it's always good to try things at least once just for the experience. Man... Now I'm hungry.

Do you guys Gamecube it while letting the food digest? XD

You know what's odd? our Old Holiday Traditions, before my brother hosted Christmas, we had meals very much like that. (Mom's family is German), so that looks perfectly normal, for a Christmas Brunch.) I don't like pate' though. you two look way too cute together. The Dinners, however were full near formal affairs. :-)

I find the olives odd. I like 'em, of course, but I've been told by a number of people that the rest of the world thinks the US is insane for eating green olives.

thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: December 28th, 2005 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
i find them positively foul. i prefer black ones. Tascun opted for the green olives.

I'd take the bread and jam. Everything else scares me a bit, especially the milk. ^_^; I think that much milk fat would give me a mucus attack from hell. XD

Ah, yes. Animaniacs was the one who mocked limburger. I used to love that show to pieces.

That food does look good. 83 Which cheese is limburger??
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: December 30th, 2005 07:00 am (UTC) (Link)
see the plate with the brie closest to the bread? Its the one that is sliced in half with the orange outside and white inside.

Actually warner brothers toons have been mocking limburger since the 30's, Animaniacs just followed suit.
