Salt Lake City 27.11.06: Gift of Snow and Cool Viennese Wine

Just in from walking in a slushy snowfall. What a treat, a gift, to see snow.

We also discovered a little Viennese bistro on Main St. and had a delicious meal of wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, with blaukraut and speckböhnen (me) and lauchen and spätzle. Then we finished off with sinfully wonderful linzertorte, nicely seasoned with cinnamon and lemon zest. The schnitzel was fried in butter and was magnificent.

All this with two glasses of Grüner Veltliner in tall green-stemmed glasses, tart and cool—the very taste of a Viennese summer. It brought back happy memories of enjoying this wine the summer we were in Vienna.
