So here's what happened to my poor kitchen.
One thing has become certain in our World cuisine adventure-- I really can't cook, but I can make a really BIG mess in attempting to do so.
We had Spaetzle and Schnitzel. (Say that 10 times fast) I really wanted to make both of those just so I could keep saying it over and over again. Spaetzle Schnitzel Spaetzle Schnitzel Spaetzle Schnitzel. See.....wasn't that fun?!
To be honest they are both a little on the bland side for me, but Andrew and Ethan made pigs of themselves.
And for dessert we had?? Can you Guess? No, not German chocolate cake (it's not German at all). We had Black Forest cake--which is very German, but we had to Americanize it a little. Traditional Black Forest Cake is a dark chocolate cake with maraschino cherries, doused in alcohol. While I may have needed that after my Spaetzle cooking debacle, I just couldn't justify nasty cake and drunk children.
And besides, there wasn't enough fat in dinner-- we needed loads of real whipped cream to top it off.
Next week Brazil!
