Eating By Ancestry, Day 2

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

If you missed it, this week we’re eating all German, all week, as part of JessieLeigh’s Eating by Ancestry adventure. See Day 1’s recipes and pictures.

For breakfast, I had toast with jam and a slice of cheese and coffee. Lots.

For lunch, I made Kase Spatzle.

Was it good? I didn’t care for it.

Did I make any alterations to the recipe: I used the prosciutto and forgot to add parsley at the end, but didn’t make any real alterations.

Would I make them again in “real life”? I’m tempted to try spatzle again, but I am not really sure what it is supposed to taste like. I think it’s often served with the noodles boiled and then pan-fried. I’m pretty sure my dough was a little too thick and my noodles a little too big, but what I really didn’t care for was the Emmanthaler cheese. I should have used something milder. It was too close to a stinky cheese.

For dinner, I had a sandwich. I’m already getting tired of sandwiches, even on homemade bread! Bread seems to be a HUGE part of this traditional German diet. But since I don’t do heavy labor, I’m afraid all the bread is just going to find its way to my hips.

This morning, day 3, I woke up with a fever and felt really awful until about 8 p.m. So we’ll try again tomorrow as long as I’m feeling pretty normal. Hopefully I’ll at least get the Rouladen recipe done, if not the Bierocks.
