So this week we’re eating all German, all week, as part of JessieLeigh’s Eating by Ancestry adventure.
For breakfast today, we had Kartoffelpuffer (Potato Pancakes) and applesauce
Were they good? Yes!
Did I make any alterations to the recipe: Not really. I think I added too much salt by accident, but I tried to follow the recipe. I fried them in melted palm oil shortening.
Would I make them again in “real life”? Maybe for a special occasion. I don’t fry at home very much.
For lunch, we had Gulaschsuppe (Beef Stew).
Was it good? Yes!
Did I make any alterations to the recipe? Yes. A ton. See below.
Would I make it again in “real life”? Yes, I think so, although we have a pretty good beef stew recipe already.
Since I adjusted this recipe for the slow cooker, to use what I had, and because I forgot to buy wine and marjoram and didn’t have any paprika, here is what we actually had. Which may or may not resemble the original recipe!
For dinner, we will have sandwiches, fruit, and leftovers.
Do your tastebuds favor your ancestry? I admit I am nuts about the flavors of German food – sausages, sauerkraut, pickles … YUM!
