It is almost to the end of the Spargel (Asparagus ) season
and I have been busy this May and am late to the plate
with telling you about this special time.


Spargels are not eaten year around in Germany, the season is special
and runs from early april to June 24 .

Wooden Spargel Huts Shoot up all over Germany
,but particularly in the regions that raise it so it can be
cut fresh and taken to market that day
However particularly white asparagus (Weisse Spargel) is sold.

On my Eimer Liste (Bucket List) is to go on a "Tour de Spargel"
on a bicycle. There are several Spargel routes you can take
the Baden and the Lower Saxon.

From the German Deli

Nuremberg Bratwurst

$4.99 On Sale! $3.74

7oz (8 links)

For the first time EVER we have authentic German Bratwurst actually made in Nürnberg and imported fresh from Germany. Produced under the highest quality standards and USDA approved. These sausages are made from a traditional 1313 recipe (which would make it a 698 year old recipe). It doesn't get any better than this. It's so delicious you won't need to add mustard. This Nürnberger Bratwurst is fully cooked just heat and serve. Can be pan fried or grilled. Each package contains eight (8) small Bratwurst similar in size to American breakfast sausages. Each sausage measures approx. 3.5" in length.
Storage: Refrigeration recommended but can be frozen too.

How was the size of the Nuremberg Sausage created?
According to legend, Hans IV. Stromer (1517-1592), a judge in the medieval times, was imprisoned for life for revealing an important political secret. In those days, life-term in prison meant that once the dungeon doors were shut, you never again left your cell. Prisoners depended on family members for their food. Since he was a high ranking prisoner, Stromer was granted one reasonable wish. That wish was to be allowed 2 Bratwursts daily until the end of his days. So, his family made a Bratwurst so small that it could be passed through the keyhole of the prison door.
In deference to the legend, all "Nürnberger Bratwurst" now made in Germany are required, by German law, to include certain ingredients in specific proportions. The law specifies that the sausages must be a certain length and diameter, and must be produced within the city limits of Nürnberg.

German Music


I was lucky enough to host my dear friend Oliver Mühling and his son
Daniel from Sinsheim in Baden, Germany for the last few weeks.
We found a Pub in San Diego where we could watch the Soccer (fußball) championships where his beloved team Bayern München defeated another German team Borussia Dortmund.

Olli wanted to share some of his favorite songs that are played at
Bayern München Soccer matches.

Here is a Bayern München theme song


 ~~~ ♪♪♪~~~


 ~~~ ♪♪♪~~~

Deutsches Showballett Berlin
mit dem Zillertaler Hochzeitsmarsch


This is the song that is played after Bayern München scores a goal, although if a player
that is on the team but not from Germany sometimes a different song is played.
