Saturday morning we paid a visit to the EUROPEAN DELI to pick up some German egg noodles and Russian candy and pastries. We were floored by the disconcerting image on this box of Russian stuffed cabbages, featuring A BABY IN A POT. Makes me wonder what kind of meat is stuffed into those cabbage leaves...
A new edition to the deli were these banners showcasing different FOOD PYRAMIDS from various European countries - mostly Eastern Bloc. We thought Missy's dad would get a kick out of the POLISH FOOD PYRAMID, which seems pretty accurate:
We hauled home this GIANT RAISIN DANISH, mostly because we liked the CUTE SNAIL on the label...that thing was bigger than our cat!
