Farmer's Breakfast and a Pickle

It's a shame that today's Essen 2 was not vegetarian, because if there is something my diet is missing, it is a giant pickle. This was another meal that I translated the name because I wasn't sure what I should call it. Maybe an omlet? Or the inside of a breakfast burrito?

Instead I ate Essen 1, which was a German noodley thing with vegetables, salad, and chocolate pudding. But when I saw the long line for Essen 2 that persisted well into the lunch hour, I knew I still needed a picture. After all, my three readers are counting on me! After trying to be sneaky and take stalker-shots of people's meal, I ended up asking a guy, who had ordered two plates of Essen 2, if I could take a picture of his food. He replied enthusiastically "of course," and made no remark of how weird it was that a random American girl was taking pictures of people's lunches.

The pickle brings up the strangeness of this meal, and although I didn't taste it, I am giving it full marks for deliciousness because that line was LONG! And I saw several people with two plates, so it must have been good.

Strangeness: 3/5
Deliciousness: 5/5 (assumed)


  1. haha I can see a second plate hiding behind that first one. I once saw a food network "unwrapped" episode about frozen pickle juice popsicles... some people really love pickles!

  2. two friends and I once ate an entire jar (large size) of dill pickles, and then finished off the juice, during a movie--I think I fall into the category of "people who really love pickles!"

    I'm loving the posts Aimee=) My lunches look incredibly boring in comparison!

  3. I love that both of you described that stuff pickles float around in as 'juice.' That stuff is practically toxic! But I've sipped it from the jar at least once...
