Howdy peeps! We made it through our first Christmas in Germany--it was honestly really great!! Nothing crazy, loud or chaotic. Nice, quiet and fun to just be with my husband! We did miss our families but again, it was nice just having the two of us this year! There's a bunch of gifts that have yet to make it here, so we'll have Christmas part 2 sometime in the next few weeks here. So we did bounce in between a few fun dinners last week. We have met some pretty cool friends since being here and we're grateful to have been invited over for some awesome meals! Our landlords was the most original or local if you will. Pretty cool to try all the tradition Germany food---now if I was a good blogger, I would have taken a dang picture of it all but you'll just have to take my word on this one. German Landlord Christmas Dinner Menu: Freshly hunted and cooked venison Kartoffel Kloesse-German Potato Dumplings, Red Cabbage Slaw, brussel sprouts (that were amazeballs. I LOVE brussel sprouts and these were well done with some diced up ham!) Crouton stuffing (tasted like your basic Thanksgiving type stuffing.) & Gravy!
