What I am served

23 Jun

I love looking at the artistic food postings of my friend Debby Wolvos and the healthy plates of my friend Kim Miller. Being on a group tour we don’t have the freedom of a menu; we all get the same thing. I decided to share with you a few of my plates from earlier tonight. I was one of the few to try the tuna tartar. It looks like a gray pancake but it was really good. The mystery cabbage is still a mystery, enough said. I am enjoying all the lox and dark bread at breakfast. They have some mystery fish that people are eating but it will remain a mystery as I am not interested in trying it.

6.24.12 More dishes. Karaism restaurant in Trakai it was really interesting. We were served a beet salad then meat patties. I attached a picture with more information. We asked what kind of soup was being served, the waiter said, ” some kind of broth soup with a lithuanian grass” lol

Tonight’s dinner was at a beautiful restaurant. They served baked pear with blue cheese, lettuce, and Parmesan cheese. Halibut with a mushroom sauce with purée cauliflower . It was delish.

6.25.12 finally a salad! I am so excited to say I finally had a salad for lunch. Actually, no lettuce but cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, and feta. We also ordered fried dark bread dipped in cheese. I have to say it was good.

6.27.12 have fallen a little behind but had to comment on lunch today. We had beet and apple salad -yum with herring (which I didn’t touch)soup was borscht with a side of potatoes and the entree was potato latkes. Carbs!!!!! Yikes.

6.28.12 Carbs carbs and more carbs. I can’t wait for my Whole Foods salad bar!!! Blinses for breakfast. Probably the best I have ever had. Lunch started with a beautiful salad with tuna and eggs then we had cabbage soup in a dark rye bread bowl, followed by a huge potato dumpling full of cheese ( I took one bite) too rich.

6.28.12 final group dinner at Novotel Vilnius. The fish was butterfly fish? Delicious rhubarb desert

6.29.12 Polish Airline (LOT) has an interesting assortment of weird stuff see picture of tray. eek!

    Food all displayed nicely. I would also have a hard time trying new things. Maybe I would loose five lbs.. Enjoy what appeals to you. Mimi
