Products: Sausage

Just so you know, the previous posts pictures were from King Ludwigs, one of the many restaurants serving German dishes in Leavenworth, WA.

Each restaurant in Leavenworth serves the same fare, but each restaurant has its own special sausage (Ludwigs is a spicy sausage), so you can go from restaurant to restaurant trying the different kinds (and eating at all the restaurants!)

Although the story around town is...that each restaurant in Leavenworth gets their 'house' sausage 'out of house' - shipped directly from a small, family-owned deli in Selah, WA (my hometown) at Jahrs European Sausage (sorry, no website, it is Selah you know) where is it made to order for the restaurant and then shipped back to them in Leavenworth.


Travel: Leavenworth Octoberfest

Leavenworth is a little town near the Wenatchee National Forest in Washington state that celebrates its German hertiage. Last weekend I participated in their annual Octoberfest race, running in the Leavenworth Half Marathon.

So what does one do in a German inspired town during the month of October with 800 calories to make-up?

Well....by eating way too much goulash, sausage, cabbage, veal, spatzle and roast pork with family of course!
