Just desserts

I’ve been MIA lately because I’ve been traveling abroad. I went to Germany, and I could have just said that, but I prefer “traveling abroad” because it makes me feel like I’m living in a 19th century novel.

My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Munich and then Heidelberg. It was super duper fun. What stuck out to me most during our adventure? The castles? The culture? The history?

The desserts.

Germany is not fooling around when it comes to desserts. We went to a restaurant that served, get this, a pre-dessert, a dessert, and THEN A POST-DESSERT.

What?!? Yup, you heard me right. THREE desserts, all at the end of one meal. It was spectacular. Amazing. Mind blowing. I don’t have a photo of the pre-dessert because I was so flustered I just ate it without documenting it. FYI, it was sorbet with some kind of cheese and some other stuff.

But I did have enough sense to photograph my main dessert:


That white blob is an ice-cream-like concoction¬†that’s frozen even colder than ice cream is. And the fruit, well, I have no idea what that was, but it was good.


And my husband’s:


A chocolate mousse-like-thingie with burnt caramel on top.

AND the post-dessert:


That macaroon on the bottom has gold on it. GOLD. Unfortunately, gold is pretty much tasteless.

And on top of all that, I had BREAKFAST DESSERT and LUNCH DESSERT. How insane is that?

I love the Europeans.
