Yum dinner time...
So this year my husband and I celebrated 4 years of marriage. When we first got married I was just learning how to cook. I knew how to bake but I didn't really know how to COOK.
For instance I don't think I ever cooked with
raw chicken before I was married.
(Or any other raw meat)
Jump 4 years ahead and I am cooking up a German feast...
Scott loves German food!!
(He spent two years in Germany on his mission for
the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints)
So to celebrate our anniversary I cooked up a list of German goodies.
And For Dessert:
Translation for all of those who don't know what all that is:
Jäger-Schnitzel: Typically a veal or pork schnitzel topped with a creamy-mushroom sauce.
(I used chicken for mine, we aren't big pork fans)
Spätzle: are very small German egg noodles made from flour,
eggs, salt and either water or milk.
Sauerkraut: Chopped cabbage that has been pickled in brine
Gurkensalat: Cucumber Salad soaked in a vinegar dill dressing
Apfelkuchen: Apple Cake
This was by far my very very favorite...
Normally I am not a huge fan of German deserts
(normally they don't use a lot of sugar)
But this cake was sooo yummy.
Scott said it might be his all time favorite cake!! It's supper soft on the inside and has a wonderful crispy-sugary shell on the outside. The apples are a perfect complement to the texture.
I crave this cake almost every day... yeah it's that good!!
Happy Cooking :)
