Brat Bacon Pretzel Burger vs. Cuy

I received word today that Julie and the Woodlands team made it safely to Lima, Peru last night. They left for Chincha this morning. They checked into the hotel this afternoon and traveled to the work site to get an overview of what they are going to be doing. The hotel has wireless internet, so hopefully Julie will be able to blog about what is going on there as well.

Today, I went with Travis, Dad, and Sarah to Luke and Niki's place in Madison. There we met up with Niki, Max (Niki's brother), and Luke and went out to lunch at the Great Dane Pub. I had the "THE GREAT DANE’S BRAT & BACON PRETZEL BURGER". I thought this would be a good chance to compare what I am going to be eating while Julie is gone to what she is going to be having. Here is a picture of my exact burger, with the burger, bacon, cheese, and "brat patty". The pretzel part is the bun itself, made from pretzel dough. How crazy wonderful is that?


Here is a representative picture of "Cuy", which Peruvians eat 65 million of per year.



I know that by posting this, Julie is going to bring something weird home for me to eat, just to get back at me. I am sure the food they are having is actually really good, but I just wanted to poke fun a little.

that one's a toss up - that cuy actually looks good. like a mini luau. Sorta like the peruvian version of cornish hen maybe?

I've eaten cuy, too! It sounds so much nicer to say cuy vs. guinea pig. The later makes me feel like someone's pet tastes like chicken...
