Schnitzel and Spaetzel, a traditional German Dinner

Jäger Hänchen Schnitzel and Kartoffelspätzle - a Traditional German Dinner

Ry’s family is traditionally German, but somewhere along the way, they lost their traditional foods and heritage, so being a homeschooling family, we did some research, and as part of the ‘unit’ we had a traditional German food for dinner! It was a hit.

One of the great things about being an American, is it’s a great melting pot of a bunch of different cultures, foods, and beliefs; but one of the drawbacks, is how easy it is to lose your heritage and keep up with the Joneses. Not saying the old ways are perfect, or that the new ways are wrong; but it’s important to strike that balance and to learn from the past.

Jäger Hänchen Schnitzel and Kartoffelspätzle - A breaded, boneless, skinless breast of chicken, topped with a burgundy-mushroom or a creamy-mushroom sauce.

Ode to a cheeseburger what a wonderful thing
With pickles, onions tomatoes and cheese
I’m easy to please
With its buns and seeds it has no needs
Except to fill you up even if you get stuck
And yell oh shucks!
With its cousin the French fry
It tells no lies
With ketchup in your right
and the last fry in your left
Its just the burger on your plate
It truly is impossible to hate

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup | @Emmmmerz www.emmmmerz.com

I found a recipe on Pinterest this afternoon for crockpot soup (I LOVE Crockpots, best invention ever!) But as I went to make it, I found that I would have to tweak it slightly, which I tend to do anyways, as that is why I cook in the first place, to make stuff the way *I* like it.
So I’ve included both the original recipe, and my own version, you’ll have to wait and see how it turns out, as I just threw it together and have to wait for it to cook.
