Ich habe Hunger... auf Deutsch.

I miss Austrian cusine. Yes, I dearly missed the fine tastes of Taco Bell while in Europe.

But can't a girl just get some Brie and Baugette around here for lunch!?! And instead of Wienerschnitzel the way I like it:

"Wiener Schnitzel (German pronunciation: [ˈviːnɐ ˈʃnɪtsl̩]) or alternatively, Vienna Schnitzel, is a traditional Austrian dish and is a popular part of Viennese and Austrian cuisine, consisting of a thin slice of veal coated in breadcrumbs and fried. In Austria the dish is traditionally served with a lemon slice, lingonberry jam and either potato salad or potatoes with parsley and butter. While the traditional Wiener Schnitzel is made of veal, it is now sometimes made of pork, though in that case it is often called Schnitzel Wiener Art (Germany) or Wiener Schnitzel vom Schwein (Austria) to differentiate it from the original. In Austria, the term Wiener Schnitzel is protected by law, and any schnitzel called by that name has to be made from veal."

Here, I have to deal with people who don't even know what Schnitzel is. No, it's not a desert. You must be thinking Strudel. Also, it's NEVER served with noodles (but hey, nothing else really rhymes with schnitzel). Ach! Ich vermisse Schniztel. I guess it's off to TB for lunch then, since my dumb American bread went alllll sorts of moldly only 4 days after buying it. Thanks.
