Did you know that a LONG LONG time ago, my Mommy was an exchange student to Germany? Well, she WAS! She lived there for an entire year back when she was 18. (Told you it was a LONG LONG time ago!) Well, every year, Mommy and Daddy try to go to a German Resturant in Fort Worth, and this year (even though it was their anniversary) I got to go with them.
Look at the size of my KIDS meal! I got weinerschnitzel with saurkraut, rotkohl and potatoes.
Mommy's meal is very traditional. One of her host moms made this meal for every special occassion. Rolladen, Rotkohl, Potatoes (though these are mashed, not salz) and spaetzle- which is more Hungarian than German (at least where Mommy lived, no one ate it.)
Now- these meals all look very HEAVY. They ARE!! Just remember, according to Mommy, these are special occassion meals. Most of the time, people eat bread with cold cuts, butter and cheese.
CHICKEN DANCE TIME... again, this is an American creation, but OH WHAT FUN!
This lady played the SAW!!! Really cool!

Pop and I lived in Germany longer than Mommy--and this is not a food I missed. Jagerschnitzel--now that is wonderful!!--along with some apfelsaft.

That looks like heavy food to me, but I guess once a year is not too bad. "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY"........

Thatcher, it is OK to celebrate with Mommy & Daddy. Take every opportunity for a "celebration". Did you eat any of that kid's meal? None of it looks appetizing to me!!
