This week started out with a classic meal from the local Chinese place here in Frechen. I had some spicy chicken with veggies. Not very exciting I know, but as you can tell, we are very limited with what there is to eat here.
On Tuesday I tried pita bread with some paprika and tomato cream together with two pieces of baklava. I was very excited about the baklava because the owner of the shop where I bought the food was just about to close the store. Normally he would have sold me the sweet starting from 2.50 EUR but due to my late night bargaining skills I was able to get it down to only 1 EUR. :) (This is basically impossible to do in Germany which is why it is such a big deal and so impressive :) )
On Wednesday I went and got something (at least for me) very special. I was able to get a sausage roll! This reminded me on my time in Worcester, England while working for a thermochemical company. The local canteen there had always sausage rolls and these where my daily target. Due to the popularity of the sausage rolls in this company, I was always very excited when I got hold of one. Here in Cologne it was just smiling at me and I was able to just buy it without defending it from my former collegues.
On Friday we went out with a lot of friends to Sachsenhausen and had to eat quick and easy. Our result was Spaghetti Bolognese which paved the way into our very entertaining evening.
This time I don't have a nice enough picture for Sunday due to the fact that we had more than 10 friends over for a Playstation and Wii afternoon. At the same time we were making crepes on a real crepe machine and the pictures only ended up on real cameras. Maybe one picture will find its way into the blog :).
Instead of posting the Sunday crepe picture, I choose to post our lox roll with tomato salad and chips. A very good finish for this very entertaining week.
