Fika Friday: Germany

Ok… so today is technically Thursday, but we are learning about Germany this month and decided to make some German food.  My dad served his mission in Germany so I asked him what foods we should try.  He said bratwurst, sauerkraut, kloesse, and spaetzel.  So that’s what we made.  

We listened to a lot of German folk music and now I have yodeling stuck in my head. haha.

Spaetzel (egg noodles)
Kloesse (potato dumplings) and Bratwurst


For dessert, we had Spaghettieis (spaghetti ice cream).  “Spaghetti ice cream was invented in 1969 by Dario Fontanella, son of an ice cream making Italian immigrant and owner of Eis Fontanella in Mannheim, Germany. He had the brilliant idea of pressing vanilla ice cream through a spaetzle press* to create the look of spaghetti noodles. The the rest of the look was created by using a simple strawberry sauce for the marinara and white chocolate bits for the Parmesan.”
