German Food and the movies

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!

Reibekuchen! (potato pancakes)

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?

  1. You three look wondereful! Uschi makes Kartoffelpuffer, which is the same thing, yes? She serves it with apple sauce and I go totally wild! Definitely not Weight Watchers! Hihi!!!
