The kids and I went on one of our first adventures in Texas. I was excited when I saw on the internet that there's a German deli in the area and this morning, in the still really really windy coldness (Chicago's the windy city?!) I packed up the troops and went off to find it. And I eventually got there. I ended up getting off of the correct exit only to get pushed back on the highway (weird Texas on- and offramps...) and then my directions told me to go right instead of left, so I circled a shopping center for 10 minutes before seeing the flying German flag on the other side of the road. Ta da!
I was like a kid in a candy store! Literally, kind of, since I picked up DH's favorite (Kinder) and the weltberühmte Gummibären. They had all sorts of German goodies to make. A little expensive but worth it once in a while. I can make some traditional German stuff and even a little treat (Milchreis). The kids were good, the ladies were sweet, and the stuff was great. Did I mention the kids were good? Of course, I tried to speak in German, and E switches back and forth fine, but the Simster responds in English. The ladies probably thought he didn't understand what I was saying. Gotta work on that.
DH comes home tomorrow! Yeah!
