Today was pretty relaxed. We went to Marktkauf again for a few things, just Brad and I. Whew, it was open :)
We were leaving the next day for a trip to Lambsheim (near Frankfurt) and we have lots of food in the fridge and no freezer. So we had steak for lunch with spaetzle! It was really good.
We left at about 4:15 for Brad's German boss's house. (Alex, his wife Silke and their kids Louisa and Jonathan.) They live in Gersthofen which is where the Kuka office is where Brad will be working most of the time. Alex told us we were having Knoedel which they served last time we were there 4 years ago. It is soooo good, so we knew we were in for a treat!
The kids played a game while dinner was cooking.
|Rolls sliced up, onions sauteed with parsley, then mixed with hot milk and poured over the rolls. Let soak for 1/2 hour.|
|Squish it all together, adding bread crumbs to get it the right consistency|
|How it looks when it's ready to be Knoedel-ized|
|Make it into giant balls about the size of a racquet ball, then into boiling salted water. Boil for 20 to 30 minutes.|
|The finished product. Not the prettiest thing, but so very good!!|
|The bottom layer is a 1/2 peach that she cooked in orange juice, then a layer of Bisquick-type stuff and she baked it. The red is a raspberry jam layer, then whipped cream and almonds. In a tiny glass. Nummy.|
