Just like Oma's ... "S"
May 27, 2015
Just like Oma's - "S""S" is our letter this month as we travel through our series on Germany from "A" to "Z".
We're checking out "S" foods, going to some "S" places in Germany, meeting some "S" people, and learning some "S" words! But first …
Oma's News!I’m so excited! Tomorrow, I hop on the plane for Germany! My sister and I are taking a 2-week bus tour! I’m leaving with a camera and an empty tummy. The plan is to try lots of REAL German food and take oodles of photos.
Those photos will be finding their way into my next cookbook!
I have several ebooks that many of you have already downloaded, but I'm thinking my next one will be a printed edition. Which do you prefer: ebook or hardcopy?
1. Spargelsalat (Asparagus Salad)I'm hoping it's still asparagus season in Germany when I get there. Many restaurants even have separate asparagus menus. I wonder if I'll find this salad there? It’s one that my granddaughter, Lydia, chose to make for our family dinner a couple of weeks ago. She even made it vegan by not including the eggs, but rather serving them alongside.
2. Spinat und Senfsosse (Spinach and Mustard Sauce)Spinach is another spring vegetable that’s so common in Germany. It's usually served creamed and often with boiled potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and mustard sauce. A very quick, easy, and healthy meal.
Creamed Spinach and Mustard Sauce.
3. Sauerkraut SoupSauerkraut. So wunderbar. So easy to turn into a lecker side dish. But, have you ever thought to turn it into a soup? WUNDERBAR!
Check it out here!
"S" Recipe, just for YOU!
Soleier (Pickled eggs)Ingredients:
"S" PlacesHere are two unusual “S” places to visit:
1. SchwerinLocated in the northern part of Germany in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and surrounded by lakes, Schwerin is known of the castle built on an island in the Schwerier See. The island originally had a Slav stronghold (AD 973) but now boasts a 653-room castle with many domes, towers, and wings that's surrounded by beautiful baroque gardens.
What a perfect place to have afternoon coffee!
2. SpreewaldJust an hour's drive south-east of Berlin, you'll find one of Europe’s most beautiful inland deltas that’s surrounded with forests and farmlands protected as a UNESCO biosphere reserve. The best way to see this is by boat … traveling through Sorbian villages that retain their traditional language, customs, clothing, and food.
Widely known for gherkins and horseradish, most of the produce is organic. You’ll definitely want to try the Zander (pike-perch)!
"S" WordsWant to learn some German words to use in the kitchen?
OK, I’m off to pack!
