^^^^LOL….this is what happens when we descend on Mom’s house for lunch.

Mom had prepared an awesome spread of boiled potatoes with a cucumber sauce ( I think it’s made with yogurt and spices) , fava beans with carrots and onions, a fruity salsa, cranberry preserves and delicious grilled fish.

Desert was cherry cake and cheese cake and coffee with vanilla ice cream of course!!!

It was great being together again.  We had lots of shared memories and lots of laughs.  I was shocked when my Mom told us of an incident that happened with my middle sister and myself when we were teens, that I have absolutely no memory of.  Mmmmm….selective amnesia???  How can my memory be so bad about some of the things that have happened in my life.  This is really bizarre and really has me puzzled.

^^^^Look!!!  My Aunt Kaethe brought me a bottle of my very own sugar beet syrup.  I’m going to have to hide it from myself. :)

I was having such a great time, I hated to leave, but it was time to go to work at Miller’s.  I made it there with two minutes to spare.

  5. Joe...yes it was, it just went by much too fast.

    Heather...Yes it was and my Mom forgives you for your Spaetzle posting. :)

    I can't explain what the sugar beet syrup tastes like, but it's awesome. Especially on warm fresh bread. I haven't seen this brand in stores around here. You'd probably have to go to an online German grocer. There is a good one in Texas. They have everything.

  6. The cucumber sauce sounds like tsatziki, my absolute favorite of the Greek menu!

    I make all summer long and put it on everything.

    You have a lovely family, Tango. Wish I lived nearer to mine : (

    Oh, and the Boston pics are GORGEOUS, I love the black fence running along side the road.

    Also, glad the doctors finding less to worry about, no more surgery would be pretty damn good news!

    Have a good weekend, and thanks for the e-mail : D

    [b]Yep...that's it. I couldn't remember what it was called. :)[/b]

    [b]I would too....if I knew how to make it. It's probably even good on pasta?[/b]
