[FHCx253] National Wienerschnitzel Day

Bless you!

TODAY IS NATIONAL WIENERSCHNITZEL DAY!

Can’t go wrong with deep fried meat, right? It’s the national dish of Austria, and it’s one of “My Favorite Things.” Butterfly-cut veal slices, super thin, pounded, and then breaded and fried. Good stuff.

Well, we don’t have a Wienerschnitzel (the chain) restaurant around here, so we had to get the real thing. And we had a few choices… Black Forest Inn, where we did Black Forest Cake a while back, but we didn’t want to do a repeat if we had another option. There’s also Gasthof Zur Gemütlichkeit, which was featured on Man vs. Food, but SP refuses to go there since they hosted a Nazi event in 2014. So we went with another local place, Bierstube.

Wienerschnitzel with some of their Jaeger sauce, German potato salad, toast and asparagus

It was really good and we’d definitely go back. Thanks, Bierstube!

Tomorrow is National TV Dinner Day!

[FHCx238] National Banana Split Day/National Whiskey Sour Day

Banananananana

TODAY IS NATIONAL BANANA SPLIT DAY AND NATIONAL WHISKEY SOUR DAY!

We don’t really get whiskey sour. Whiskey with a little bit of lemon and sugar just makes it taste more like whiskey. Eh. We were out to dinner with SParents at Pezzo and so we could give the rest of it to them!

We did get to cleanse our palette with some stuff we love, though: ice cream! Ice cream summer never ends! Well, it kind of does pretty soon, but we’re in denial!

Invented in 1904, the banana split takes nature’s best fruit and pairs it with the best cold dessert. Here is the banana split AK made in its most beautiousness.

Some chopped pecans for fun.

We could probably eat these all day.
