Not Yogurt

Pastries at train station
Cookies to prevent crying on train
Pizza because it was quick
More cookies because nothing else in purse
Juice because nice lady at the hotel offered

So you can imagine my delight when the only restaurant that delivered takeout to our hilltop hotel had "yogurette" on the menu. I hastily ordered it, figuring some yogurt and pasta, though not the healthiest of meals, was the best I could do in a foreign country with overtired, hungry, malnourished kids. And besides, it was one of the only words among the three pages of German that I was sure I understood.

The bag arrives with pasta and candy bars. The above candy bars. Candy bars my children immediately spotted and whined for.

Yogurette is not yogurt. At all.

This blonde moment is on me, folks.

I hate food days like this. Seems one can’t travel without at least one of them.

Makes me miss all those quirky, mightily delicious if sinful desserts from trips to Europe. Most of which are never to be found in the US :(

No small thing – traveling with children in foreign countries with a major language barrier. The fact that you can do it is amazing. – Yogurette bars- are they good?-

Lorraine gave me some of those when she came back from Germany last year. Yogurt they are not!

Yes, but it looks like it might have strawberries in it. Maybe not real strawberries, but berries nonetheless which qualifies as a fruit some days… especially on days like that! :)
