Schnitzelwich, Anyone?

Today is an important day - Austria is playing Poland in the European Championship of soccer... so I've gotta do my part to support my dad's team!!!

I study everything that goes on, watching for ways they can improve. Apparently they're not allowed to bite the ball and run away with it - which is my trademark move - so I'd have to think of other things for them to do.

Hm. They do a lot of running but not nearly enough in circles. I'm gonna suggest they do that - because then mom (uh, I mean whoever is chasing you) gets tired and lets go of the ball.

I'm a little frustrated with the Austrian team right now. They're losing 0-1 to the Polish team, and even with the addition of a new superstar player they're just not getting it done. Come on guys, I hear there are great treats in it for you if you win!

Ok, now they're got one final chance, one last kick, can they make it??? YESSSSS!!!!! Woo-hoo, it ends at 1-1 so Austria is still in the game! It's time to c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e...

Not exactly Austrian, but we found a very cool food cart called Tabor, they have Czech food! That sounds awfully tasty dad, how about sharing some of that fine chow with your favorite cheerleader?

There are LOTS of these food carts in downtown Portland and they have so many different kinds of food. They're usually open just for lunch and mom says that it's hard to choose sometimes! We'd never been to Tabor before, but mom saw them on the internet because they have a famous sandwich... THE SCHNITZELWICH.

This is their sign but it's kind of hard to see because it was so glossy - you see more of the building across the street than of the mighty schnitzelwich!

Aha, behold the schnitzelwich. A patty of either pork or chicken, fresh spinach, ajvar, horseradish on a tasty ciabatta roll. Dad has tried several schnitzel dishes around town since we've been here in Portland, and he says that this was the tastiest so far! How about letting me decide, huh dad?

One more bite for you, then a bite for meeeeeee....

WOW. That was YUMMO. You can check out the Tabor food cart here: Schnitzelwich

Always ready to sample new cuisines... until next time! GO AUSTRIA!!!

Congrats to your team for hanging in there!!

That food looks delish. When my dad visited Portland his favorite part was all of the vegetarian restaurants.

Your friend, Lenny

I love soccer! But I do the same thing you do! Grab the ball and run! And when you go in circles (especially around a tree) the humans get tired of chasing!

Your dad's sandwhich made me and my human drool. I think it's time for some breakfast!
