 Next in our alphabetical journey through the world was Austria.  In the center of Europe, it was also the epicenter of World War I and the seat of the Austrian Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

For the food, I checked out this blog post on the 20 best Austrian dishes.  We felt like we got a little bit of a taste of some of the dishes like schnitzel and knodel when we had our Czechia meal, so I decided to go for #1 and #3 on the list: Viennese Apfelstrudel and Vienna Sausage. 

I had had Vienna Sausages as a child and knew I liked them, but this was a totally new experience for my kids.  The texture threw them off, and none of them were a big fan of them, but I didn't mind finishing off the extras.

 I found a recipe I liked for the apfelstrudel and thought I would give it a try.  In the interest of time, I took their suggestion and used a premade puff pastry.

I tried rolling the pastry instead of folding and sealing as they recommended, so it came uncurled a bit when baking.  But the final results was still quite delicious!
