Our curriculum this year takes us around the world, exploring different countries as we move around the continent.
Early February had us in Germany. We have two weeks to study the specific country. The curriculum suggests to have a dinner party at the end of the two weeks that includes specific foods from that country. Although I haven’t pulled that off for every country-we did for Germany-with the help of my German neighbor and friend. She was awesome and helped me plan a wonderfully delicious typical German meal: Spatzle (see first photo), Schnitzel and Black Forest Cake. She and I (and our six kids) cooked all afternoon and feasted together once the dads got home. A really great way to celebrate Germany’s culture and friends all at the same time!
She had this really cool grater thingy that made these Spatzle noodles. They were really good!
The kids helped decorate the black forest cake. Yummy!
