Yes it sure seems like I have hit the jackpot today ... let me explain why. :)

Ever since my most recent trip to Europe in July I have been on a kick of wanting more foods that I used to eat when I lived in Europe, especially European bread, cheese and salami. I got back into the habit of eating bread with cheese and salami while in Europe and decided that I wanted to get some. So yesterday we went grocery shopping and I got some Genoa salami and pepperjack cheese. The only missing piece was the bread.

So this morning we headed over to Karl Ehmer's deli. It's a German deli right here in Danbury which I have known about for a long time but somehow we never made it there. Their hours are a little difficult, closing around 5pm, so we never really managed to go. You know how you say you want to go to a place but it just never happens ... well let me tell you: I am sooo glad that we ended up going today. It's like I have hit the jackpot. I was able to get nice dark German bread that will go wonderful with my cheese and salami. But even better than that I was able to see that they have a huge selection of German/Austrian meats and cheeses. They even have Hungarian salami, my favorite. Oh and Leberkäse and Butterkäse and all sorts of other cool stuff. I am still in utter disbelief that I have been able to find all this stuff so close to home ... and it's been here all along. Who knew ?

Going to get out of work pretty soon and then we will take a little ride and have Cracker Barrell for a late lunch/early dinner. Yummm. :)
Mike just emailed me earlier and we decided to go to the Connecticut Wine Festival tomorrow. I had no idea that it was taking place this weekend but I am sure it will be fun. I really like the idea. I just hope it will be less hot and less humid than it has been. Ugh ... I hate this weather.

Mail Update: No letters have gone out. :( Received letters from/owe replies to: Alison/UK, Michelle/Canada, Alex/Spain, Pamela/FL and Fiona/Scotland.
