Pretzel Love

There are foods I love so much I can distinctly remember the first time I had them. For soft pretzels it was at a Brewer's game. We went to see them play at County Stadium in Milwaukee. I had some of Mom's pretzel dipped in mustard. I wasn't interested in the game, but I was interested in the food. I still enjoy having a pretzel at a ball game, but now I enjoy watching the game. I think it took becoming a Cubs fan for me to enjoy baseball.
Having a day off from running and not having the urge to knit I decided to give making pretzels a try. I am glad I did. They may not look as pretty as a ballpark pretzel, but they taste much better. I can't wait to be invited to a tailgate party so I can bring these pretzels. I think they'll go great dipped in mustard accompanied by a cold beer.

There is nothing like a homemade pretzel!
