We love our grandma's cabbage rolls so we decided to try these Polish ones. They used catsup in the recipe, which we thought sounded kind of good, but we didn't really care for it that much. The next day my mom made a gravy for them and they tasted better that way.
We really to make something from Russia so we could color in the biggest country. We looked at a lot of recipes and then we found this one for Russian pancakes- so we thought we'd make a breakfast! They were really good! We used an unbleached wheat flour. Super easy and super good! We've already made them again.
Then we wanted to make some apples to go with them.
This is the most common meal here in Germany, so we thought we'd try it. We're way behind on our 52 weeks- so we need to catch up! We didn't make the Brats from scratch, we bought them uncooked from a meatshop and just had to fry them. But we did fry the potatoes. The potatoes are much more yellow here than the ones we have at home. They also taste like they have butter already on them even when they're just boiled. We ate them with curry ketchup, which is the most popular kind of ketchup here.
The kitchen sink here is quite small and they don't have disposals here so we have to be careful to clean out the sink before turning the water on. We're not used to that. And it's pretty tricky to do dishes- like pots and pans in this sink.
Nearly empty plate from our little cousin. Everyone loved these.
We didn't really cook this week because our mom is really busy with packing and stuff since we're getting ready to go to Germany for 3 months leaving tomorrow. So we just went to the store and bought the stuff and warmed it up. It was really good, but not as good as our favorite Indian restaurant. This is our favorite Indian dish.
For Chinese New Year we decided to make wonton soup. (But we used the recipe for Dragon Moon Potstickers from the February Book of Days, because we thought it looked good. But you can use the wontons from the recipe.)
It was super fun to make the wontons!
We made some in this shape
And some in this shape- but this shape did not taste as good because the wonton wrapper got all gooey.
The soup was really good! We can't wait to make it again.
