:: Radichen Sandwich ::

Every now and then Markus will make some type of food and say something along the lines of, "this is what poor Austrian kids ate when I was a kid".  Last night our neighbor gave us some fresh radishes, so he decided he wanted a Radish Sandwich.  Strange?  Yes.  Very.

The words out of his mouth last night were, "Nini, I will show you what us poor Austrian kids ate when we had to find something to eat."  He proceeded to make a radish sandwich that simply contained sliced radishes, butter, salt and pepper.  It is called Radichen (pronounced rad-ees-e-en).  Interesting I say.  Interesting.
Please note the picture.  Markus did make me take this and we did have to re-shoot the pic with the knife in perfect position. :-)
