Micha recently ordered a custom-made muesli mix from My Muesli. On the company website you pick the ingredients you'd like in your mix, give the mix a name and wait for delivery. Soon thereafter you'll get your muesli in these adorable tubes. On the back is a sticker listing your mix title, ingredients, and a "packed by" line, signed by the individual who made the actual mix.
I find the whole concept really cool and think that the company definitely scores high on the aesthetic scale. I love seeing the tubes in the kitchen (and no, I haven't left them on the counter. They're on top of a cabinet.
And yes, that's a whole bus load of muesli, isn't it? By the way, muesli=granola if you aren't from around here...
One of the greatest things about Germany is the abundance of flea markets. Israel, by comparison, has... two, maybe? I've found some awesome things at the various flea markets I've visited over the past year and a half. A couple of weekends ago I went to the Riem flea market on the east side of Munich. I didn't pick up too many things, but saw some really cool displays that I wanted to share.
Also included are some older finds from the big flea market in Regensburg, a town about an hour's drive from Munich.
Steffi and Steve fed us while the yeast was proofing.
For the past few years Micha, Steffi and Steve have gotten together to bake Christmas Stollen, a German Christmas fruitcake. From humble beginnings, this has become an all-day, production line affair, requiring excellent math skills, supreme upper body strength, and copious amounts of healthy ingredients like butter and sugar.
