Christkindlmarkt

Yesterday we went to a wonderful restaurant commonly called steak on a rock. They bring out these large cuts of meat raw on a way hot square stone that cooks it. So everyone can have it cooked as much or as little as they please. On the side are various sauces to dip it in if you choose. The only one I like is the garlic butter. You can order several different meats. It could be that I have posted on this before, but if I have you can see how great it is by me mentioning it twice. You can order what they call a t-bone steak which I would call a huge porterhouse, bison, crocodile, kangaroo, ostrich, or rump steak. I don't recall there being any others. Anyway, it's just wonderful. Hubby always gets the t-bone, but last time I got the bison and this time I got the ostrich. Ostrich is a red meat and tastes quite a bit like beef, but then most red meats that I have tasted do taste similar.



Anyway, after that we went to the Chriskindlemarkt here in Bamberg. Last year we went to the one in Nurenburg and we may go again this year. Last night the stores in downtown Bamberg were open until midnight. They do this once a year and so we went to enjoy. We tried the gluhwein but didn't like it. lol we liked the non-alcoholic kinderpunch that the children drink. We had a good time anyway.

My husband and I haven't went off the bases to any of the Christmas markets, but they do have them at many of the AAFES installations and we have gone too many of them.
Plus the ones on the bases take dollars or euros whereas off base it's euros only and you and I know the euro rate is horrible...LOL.
I wouldn't mind going to the Christmas market in Frankfurt but with the euro rate and DH working crazy hours it's highly unlikely we will. Oh well.
We have spent enough this year as it is. I'm done :-)
