Bad Reichenhall, Bavaria.
Our family lived there, in our early years, while my father was stationed there at an Army base. I've gone back to visit family, but it's been 25 years since I was last there. My Oma was very old and ailing, and I knew this would be my last chance to say goodbye to her.
I have no desire to attend the big Oktoberfest (too many people, a bit too much drinking for my own taste). However, we will go to the famous Munich Hofbräuhaus for some beer, Bavarian food and music. That's a must!
I so wanted to find some time to post recipes, over the last few weeks, but it never happened. I was focused on making sure my work desk was tidy and my projects were finished. Our house sitters arrived, from Rhode Island, and we've been busy spending our evenings catching up on our 25 year friendship.
So, I will leave you with a photograph taken from a web cam of my mother's home town.
We will return in two weeks-- but I will be posting photos on my Instagram Account, and on my Facebook Page.
