Seriously. Mom’s just cook the best food.
German food is generally not the healthiest – full of butter, meat, cheese, and all those good things. The fam jam tries to be pretty healthy, but sometimes good ol’ German cooking is necessary.
Here are some eats since I have been home.
SOUP! Mama makes the best soup. In this guy we have all sorts of goodness: barley, beans, carrots, and chicken (to name a few).
Pfannenkuchen. Or shall I say, German pancakes. They are essentially a crepe. So delicious.
Along with some homemade canned deliciousness Peaches and Cherries.
I also had a smoothie yesterday because I felt like I have hardly had any veggies since I have been here. White flour has been a staple in the last couple of days which generally doesn’t make it onto my plate more than once or twice a month.
I added some of this because well, I figured this should make up for my lack of veggies
Today Dora and I went into town and stopped at a local bakery. YUM
We got home and made a real German meal. Gulasch (stew), spaetzle (egg noodles), and salad.
I love making the noodles the most. So much fun and who makes their own noodles these days? – definitely a rarity if you ask me!
My favourite bits are the ones that stick together in the boiling process, they generally look like this So scrumptious. Imagine a big ball of dough in your mouth, sounds awful but its so goooooodddd!
Needless to say, I have eaten more white flour and all sorts of other goodness in the past 3 days than I have in the past 2 months. I’m perfectly okay with it
