Yesterday was the epitome of the perfect Sunday.
It was rainy, quiet and my schedule was empty.
On Saturday night my laptop decided to inform me that it's battery was pretty much dead. I had no idea this would require me to find an Apple store and replace the $130 dollar battery.
Instead of whining like a poor little baby about how I can't afford a battery and the nearest apple store is an hour away....Tyler and I made it a Sunday field trip. (It's so nice to have support when crappy things like unfun expenses come about).
Before the field trip we watched Liverpool sadly lose their game.....and I ate oatmeal!
We headed to Danbury, Connecticut because that was the closest Apple store. Even though we had to wait a solid hour and a half to get my laptop fixed and happy, it was a pretty smooth process.
Tyler is a man. Which means by the time the whole laptop process was over he was pretty darn hungry. He somehow found a local German restaurant. We decided to wing it and go since we both have not eaten at an authentic German restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised to drive up into this little gem.
Old Heidelberg German Restaurant couldn't have been more authentic looking.
We wanted to experience the closest thing to traditional German. I ordered the Schnitzel with Fried Egg, Red Cabbage and Spaetzle. The portion sizes were GINORMOUS.
Tyler ordered the sausage platter with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.
It was an absolutely wonderful lunch/dinner. I loved how manly the food was. Super hearty. Everything a man would want to eat in my opinion.
We even got to meet the chef and check out the kitchen when they found out we were culinary students. We will surely be coming back in the summer to partake in their outdoor beer garden parties.
It turned out to be such a nice Sunday. I'm sort of happy my battery died. It was a great excuse to check out a new town and eat at a cute authentic restaurant.
Have you ever been to a German restaurant. Yay or nay?
