When I was in Philadelphia last week for a conference, I skipped out on an afternoon session and wandered around Reading Terminal Market for over an hour just marveling at the life of it all. It was a rainy few days in Philadelphia, so slipping away to the warm busy place was a treat.
Cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.
New Orleans lovin' foodie friend was with me.
Amish in Lancaster County.
The food prepared by the Pennsylvania Dutch was so tempting that I came back the next morning and had an egg and cheese pretzel roll, which was the best breakfast I've had in as long as I can remember. After I got home, I woke up from a nap thinking about pretzels.
And I can't forget the pudding. Oh my! I counted 28 varieties of pudding. This must be the only place on earth with such a spread.
There was healthy food too. Vrapple - the vegan answer to the local Pennsylvania speciality Scrapple.
If you're in Philadelphia, you really must go.
