|Part of a small-town Germany parade I saw in 2011.|
There are parties, costumes, and all-around ridiculous behavior. I’ve never been a huge costume person, but there was something I was really looking forward to this year. And that, is these little babies….
Doughnuts.… yes, glorious filled doughnuts, also known as Krapfen, Berliner, or some other variation.
Since I had to go home last year in February, I missed a lot of the Krapfen season. They do have these all year ’round, but usually only one or two kinds at a time. But as you can see in the photos, at this time of year there are lots of choices. And all of them are delicious. Here’s a little sampling of what I’ve eaten in the last couple of weeks…
|Raspberry and Prosecco|
|Bailey’s on the left, Raspberry Cream on the right|
|Rosehip jam in back, and something with rum in front…|
Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do until next year. How will I get through my Thursday classes without this giant glob of Bailey’s goodness in–between classes??
I miss them already.
