Crap. You know that means school is about to start. Like, soon. Like, in 4 weeks, actually.
I'm not ready for school to start. I'm not. Summer goes by WAY TOO quickly. Every year, I say, "After the 4th of July, summer is over." This summer is no exception.
|Hungarian Day in Pavilion 4|
|Hungarian Day Menu|
|Toltott Kaposzta (Stuffed Cabbage)|
|Kaposzta Teszta (Cabbage & Noodles, aka Haluski)|
In addition, a potato dumpling dish with breadcrumbs was on the menu. I had to try it - some people in the office commented that it was similar to a potato haluski that they had tried before, but I'm not sure if it's the exact dish that they know:
|Krumpli Galuska (Potato Dumplings and Buttered Bread Crumbs)|
The haluski was some of the best I have ever had - the cabbage was sweeter than that of Slovak Day, and it was lighter on butter. So awesome. The potato dumplings also had a sweeter flavor, and they were good, just a bit bland for my taste. The stuffed cabbage was great as well; the Hungarians are winning my heart, for sure (but I'm not hating on my Slovak heritage by any means! It's just a different kind of love).
For dessert, they were serving crepes in 4 flavors: raspberry, apple, cherry, and apricot. My go-to flavor is raspberry:
|Palaszinta (Crepe, with raspberry filling)|
|Mmm, apricot- and cherry-filled cookies...|
To educate the public about their culture, several Hungarian artifacts were on display. I was already taking more time on my break that I should have (long story), so I didn't have time to explore like I wanted to, but I snagged a few shots before leaving (bad lighting prevented me from getting a few more, as well):
Very unfortunately, I will miss Polish Day due to my vacation. I did participate last year, with offering of kielbasa and kraut, haluski, pierogi, etc., and it was fabulous. Very filling, very saucy - and very worth it. Please go on August 7th! Tell me what you thought! I want to live vicariously through your thoughts (and bellies)!
I'll be back for lamb again on September 1st, though - Croatian Day!
