1500 Sausages of Germany: The Mighty Currywurst

Curry Wurst (0121) by Meeta K. W

Currywurst is to Germany as pizza is to Italy, hot dogs are to America and fish and chips are to Great Britain. But only a few have their own museum. The glorious currywurst is Germany’s traditional modest snack of sliced pork sausages drenched in a tangy curry-tomato sauce and boasts of its own sausage shrine.

Summer Time and the Living is Easy, Good & Lazy

Hay Rolls by Meeta K. Wolff

That’s the way we roll in the summer. Enjoying long lazy days, taking in all that nature offers and spending a lot of time outdoors. It’s been a good summer and I’ve just returned from a most exhilarating, stunning and relaxing vacation. A road trip that took us to 3 destinations through 5 countries and I am dying to tell you about it. And I will as soon as I have decompressed and shifted through the hundreds of photos.

Travel: A Midsummer in Stockholm

Stockholm 2012 (0004) by Meeta K. Wolff
Stockholm has been one of those capitals I’ve always wanted to visit. I’m infatuated with the Nordic countries. Denmark’s capital charmed me, while the Norwegian capital Oslo stole my heart. So, when Tom started working on his project in Stockholm last year I was ecstatic, promptly buying books and magazines. I imagined flying up with Soeren to visit Tom on a regular basis and discovering Stockholm from a different side.

French Strawberry Hazelnut and Creme Patissiere Tart

French Strawberry Creme Patiserie Tart (0041) by Meeta K. Wolff 

Could these possibly be the last of the strawberries for the year?

It seems not too long ago that we were just getting excited about the start of the strawberry season. Spending quite a few days at our pick-your-own strawberry farm on the way home from work and school became customary.
