We started out with some dinner. The kids chose "safe" options like a hot dog and pizza. Jason and I were slightly braver. He chose a kind of hot dog with some type of dumpling and saurekraut (which he picked off every last piece of!). I got a "Viking on a stick" which was a type of sausage meatball covered in a dough and fried-- yum!
After dinner we walked room to room talking to vendors, seeing tons of arts/ crafts, and seeing people we knew, which is a huge deal when you've only been in a city a couple months!
We received a special plan to make these a few years ago and the directions for our pan says to use a thin pancake batter and put the jelly on the inside. These were more yeast-like, almost like a doughnut hole, and jelly was served on the side.
As we were chowing on empleskievers , we found that the whole shin-dig was done at 8:00, so like it or not, we were on our way home (or maybe to Tutti Fruiti!).
