Roadside Snapshot

During today's travels we passed this dreamy little church out on an island in the Czech Republic not too far out from Austria. The snowy-overcast skies add a mystic lure to this already wondrous site.

Jarmark Wielkanocny (Easter Fair)

Today we strolled down to the town square to peruse the Easter Market. Katowice's markets are smaller than markets in other cities, but I greatly appreciate that they put forth the effort to put one together. And although it is the wrong season for gluhwein, there are still plenty of indulgences!

Eating out in Katowice.

We were not in Katowice for long before winter set in and the sidewalk tables at the eateries on Mariacka were pulled inside. I'm still waiting for spring to come along so that the tables return...

Spring in Katowice.

Yesterday was a pretty nice almost spring-like day, so Lottie and I set out to enjoy the town. It was nice enough that we walked the couple kilometers to town, but on colder days, this is the train that runs by our flat that we ride occasionally. I appreciate the old-town romanticism married with chewed bubblegum on seat backs that the ride offers.

Scenes From Sunday

Similar to my home states of Montana and Wisconsin, we are currently stuck in Mother Nature's contemplative choice of a season. A few days of sunshine and blue skies (the first time the sky here was not gray in months..) led me to preemptively transfer our winter gear to the back closet. Which of course was quickly revenged with 20 degrees (f) and days of snow. I have a feeling that our bikes are not too far from being pulled out of the garage, but in the meantime...

I'm just an ordinary American girl living in Poland with a fancy at current for curry. My pantry is quaintly stocked with the ingredients to make Dahl whenever the mood should strike. Which hasn't been since Wednesday... So today to mix things up a little, I came up with a Red Lentil Curry Soup.

Pancake Saturday

Pancakes have been a weekend tradition for our little family, however the move to another country made a simple pantry recipe seem almost exotic.
