The Perfect Lunch Date!

All I can say yesterday was a HOOT!!  A few weeks ago I was introduced to fellow American Blogger living here in Bydgoszcz, Poland like me.  If those of you who did read my post about the volleyball game, Rachael is a professional volleyball player on the team here in town  Well we were finally able to meet face to face with her yesterday.  My oldest daughter and I headed off to my favorite restaurants here in town, Manekin.  They serve some AMAZING crepes! (that will be a future blog post!)

Fellow American blogger and professional volleyball player, Rachael Adams and I.

Well anyways, there are certain people who are meant to friends and others are meant to be  acquaintances, well Rachael, I am can say is now officially a friend!!!  We were at the restaurant for over 2 hours talking.  We were there so long we were getting hungry again.

I can not tell you what we did after leaving there as her coach and trainer might be reading this post and I am sure she does not want to do anymore burpee’s if at all possible!  That and she would kill me.

Here is how we spent our afternoon together!

One of my favorite restaurants here in Bydgoszcz, Manekin.

Here was the first dish to arrive!

My daughter’s chocolate and cherry crepe, can we say chocolate overload? There was more chocolate in the middle when you cut it open!!!

Then came this dish….

My AMAZING spinach, egg and cheese crepe with dill sauce! This one will be ordered again for sure but then again I have said that about every crepe I have eaten there.

Then finally came this dish..

Rachael’s baked spinach and cheese sauce crepe.  I have had this one before and it is another AMAZING one to eat!

All 3 of us fell in LOVE with our lunches!  For Rachael and my oldest it was their first time eating there so they are officially now hooked on crepes!

  Of course as bloggers you take lots of pictures, so here is me taking a picture of her taking a picture!

 It was great to talk to someone who understands my fast speaking English and to talk about all the little things from the US we miss like, boxed mac-n-cheese, nacho chips, red licorice, chocolate chips, pumpkin pie filling, and……..

If you had to move from your home country what food would you miss the most?  Me, I miss  Reese Peanut Butter Cups!

    I love and miss every day Manekin!!! I graduated from UMK ( Universitet od Mikolaj Kopernik in Torun) and this restaurant always been the best place to go. Have you been to Torun? It’s an amazing city!
    Love your blog because you around my hometown. I hope you like Poland. I know it’s different and understand. I live in USA now for 7 years. My English is good but not perfect. I miss times when I could talk whatever and everybody would get me… But it’s fun the same time. You learn new things every day.
    Best wishes for you and your family! And Go Polska!

    • Hanna,

      Next time I eat there, I will eat a crepe in your honor!! Which one was your favorite? Yes, I have been to Torun a few times. We have real dear friends that live down there so they have shown us the town a few times. I LOVE it down there!!!

      Where are you at in the US? What is the one thing you miss most about Poland?

  2. All I can say is ALL of those dishes look heavenly! Although, I do love me a good crepe ^.^

    I’m so happy to hear that you’ve found someone you’re able to talk to and hang out with! Everyone needs some friends to make their life just a little bit easier and a whole lot more fun!
