It's so funny at Kennywood - everything for the full-timers is winding down, the operating days are down to weekends...meanwhile, my teaching cohorts are just getting into the swing of things. I go to one job, and they are relieved that the craziness has slowed down, while at another, insanity has just begun.
Such is my life. A never-ending circle of ups and downs. It keeps things interesting, that's for sure.
There was one last nationality day to be had this summer on September 1st - Croatian Day. A frequent caller asks several times a year, "When is the lamb and pork day at Kennywood?" - if it's early in the season, I tell her the date for Serbian Day, and if it's later, I tell her the date for Croatian Day.

Oh no. Not this time.
Walking back to the pavilion, I noticed that it was a lot busier than I thought - and there seemed to be more available. The lamb was in the back, sold by the pound (and at $15/lb., I was a little put off -I think it was slightly less on Serbian Day). BUT - this menu certainly caught my eye:
|More than just lamb was offered on Croatian Day!|
|Only about half of the cookie table - there was so much to choose from!|
|Haluski and Stuffed Cabbage (with a slice of bread)|
Well. Ok, then:
|Cherry Square and Anise Cookie|
Oh. My. Goodness. That was insanely amazing. I NEED THAT RECIPE!
Sadly, the Kennywood season is coming to a close, and the nationality days are over. But, my two favorite times of year - Fright Nights and Holiday Lights - are right around the corner. From what I understand, this year's Holiday Lights will be bigger and better - and I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing it was in its first year, so I can't WAIT to see what new surprises are to come!
See you this fall (and part of winter!)!
