The Cook.....and WOW can she cook!
Our new neighbors entertained in celebration of Uli's 50th! The food was German and ALL PREPARED by the hostess. She had been cooking for 3 full days and it was a FEAST! She prepared every dish and spared no expense. Having just arrived from German several months ago.....their traditions were fresh. The time spent cooking is a sign of love and caring. The emphasis is on the enjoyment of the meal....not what can be prepared quickly purchased at Sam's Club! They are planting a garden next Spring in order to produce the vegetables they enjoy eating:D Right up my ally.....not that I do it, but that I would love to do it. Steffi had vegetable plants started and sitting all over the house (in window sills). Truely a lovely evening with friends and neighbors........restoring some of the traditions my parents held dear.
