Eating Our Way Through: Poland

I already shared a  post on the plane food to and from Europe.  The first half of our honeymoon was spent in Poland, at my husband’s cousin’s home in Poznan.

They lived about 30 minutes from the center of the city, but had an adorable market less than a mile from their home.  It was similar to a convenience store (very small), but had a deli and bakery for the freshest products.

I enjoyed the candy aisle!

And the cookies too!

They didn’t drink milk with their meals but used it in their coffee (which was instant, by the way, and not too bad!).

3.2% fat… and they left it out on the counter all day!

Breakfasts and lunches were always pretty similar… freshly baked buns from the market, lots of different meats, and cheese for me!

One morning our hostess served us these mini pierogie type treat – they were filled with sweet cheese and peach jam and boiled.  They reminded me of crepes or blintzes – delicious!

The yogurt I purchased was insanely creamy and delicious – raspberry cheesecake flavored.  I’m so used to fat free yogurt that a little bit of fat makes it taste so decadent.

Another breakfast – with scrambled eggs this time.

I made a sandwhich of sorts.

Caprese salad was my dinner several times.

My husband’s cousin brought me this special pastry since he knew I love chocolate.

I’d never buy a packaged baked good here, but it seemed much more acceptable in Europe!

I have one more post of Polish eats and then I’ll start the Italy recap, city by city.

Do you find international or new foods interesting, or do you stick to products you know?

    What fun! Some of those foods look a bit similar to food I have had while traveling in Italy. I absolutely love trying a different countries cuisine… it is so much fun.

    One of my favorite things to do in a foreign country is explore gorcery stores. They have the coolest stuff!

    Those European breakfasts kill me. You are so lucky you got eggs!!!

    Like you said, I get a little nervous when I can’t read labels–I like to know what I’m eating! But when you’re in a new place, it’s kind of fun to let go of that and explore a little, ya know?

    Oh no! now that you changed your address your blog is blocked for me at work 😦
    But I just wanted to say that I totally agree about the packaged products in Poland. Since I know the language, i can tell you that they are much better for you because I can understand all the products listed. They don’t use half of the chemicals Americans put into their packaged food, which is why it tastes so much better there! I also never buy packaged desserts here, I rather make them myself. But in Poland whether its fresh or packaged dessert, it’s all equally delicious!
    The milk on the counter thing is definitely weird, and I don’t really have an explanation for that except that it’s different. Did you taste it?? It tastes so weird. I’m not really a big fan of milk when I’m there.

    How fun!! I’m torn when it comes to traveling to places in europe…my family is from germany and they rarely eat a green! I would die! But I can’t lie the cheeses look tasty and ever so fresh 🙂
