Wednesday night my Mom made one of my favorite German dishes, which I always ‘request’ when I come home to visit: Reibekuchen (potato pancakes). We eat Reibekuchen the kölsche (colognian) way… with dark rye bread and sugar beet syrup and/or apple sauce. OMG, so freakin’ delicious!
Later, my sister, my BIL, my friend Ira and I went to the movies. We saw the movie “UP” in 3D. Of course, you can’t go to the movies without having nachos, which is somewhat of a tradition when we got to the movies here (although I had enough Reibekuchen beforehand to feed a whole soccer team, heh.)
Needless to say that I had a stomach ache afterward, but hey, you gotta enjoy life to the fullest while you can, right?
