I know, sometimes this blog devolves into Things I Ate While I Did Stuff. But you know how I feel about holidays (hungry), so don't expect that to change soon.
Joel came home Saturday and we went to the German Christmas market with his family and he had the currywurst and I had the weisswurst which I NEVER would have ordered if I'd been looking at it because it is The Zombie Hot Dog (i.e. it is dead-flesh-colored) so I will spare you a photo but it was veal and pork and that is DELICIOUS and instead, here is a nutcracker.
And then Joel had a pretzel and I had a waffle on a stick because I make more delicious choices.
And then we took this photo, which we take every year.
Tradition! And then we had a baked apple YOU GUYS. Baked apples. With hot vanilla sauce. Somebody bring me another one.
And I sampled some pickled garlic and it was weirdly amazing and I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT SO.
And then last night we went to the VanDusen Botanical Garden Festival of Lights with my family and Joel and I had never been and it was OVERWHELMING.
But festively. Lights!
And mini-donuts and cider and hot chocolate!
And the Mistletoe Monster!
Let the non-stop celebrating continue apace!
