First sunday of Advent.

With the season of advent comes the german christmas markets. Something everybody looks forward to. We try to visit at least 3 to 4 markets every year. Though people say that all the markets look the same, to us there is something different in store in each one. While hubby and I love to sip on some gluhwein and home made liquor, we also love wandering and admiring stalls with plenty of craft and handwork. Its amazing to see the creativity of Germans and I cannot help but admire their finesse and talent for such fine art. Not to forget, we do end up taking an ornament home. 

And while we do the above, the kids do try to also look out to things that appeal to them. And this particular ladies stall caught their eye.

To those who do not know, this is bannock or simply campfire bread. One of the ways to prepare it is to cook it on a stick on a campfire.

While the fire not only cooked  bread, it also gave us the much needed warmth.

We did have a lovely time and not to forget, I was grateful too for there was no snow....:D 
Tomorrow I will share some more pictures of the Weihnachtsmarkt.

  1. Hello, what a great post, I learned something.

    Back in May I actually was not far from Lohr, I was on a cruise on the Main, the nearest town we stopped at from you was Wurzburg.

    I really like Germany. Have a great week. :)

  2. I have to say that I have really enjoyed seeing the German Christmas markets online. They seem like so much fun to me.

  3. Oh May how I miss the Christmas markets....and Gluhwein!

  4. The camp bread is very interesting. Makes me think of s'mores!

  5. Nice pictures, I love the light.

  6. Campfire Bread!?!?! Why did I think of that? My family in Ohio has campfires all the time, but even though we've made some interesting food items, bread like this is a new one. THANKS!

  7. Must be fascinating to enjoy all these everyday events within another country. So many good memories to keep.


I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
