Only three kids were there to eat with us though. Miss E and Miss A had Val’s youngest George to enjoy the kraut with each other.
Local business owners served the free sauerkraut lunch. Nathan and Katie went to college together. It’s 2 degrees of separation on the prairie.
And what did we eat?
It’s not gourmet but I must admit it is tasty. I know you think it looks gross. But if you are a prairie foodie, you learn to appreciate local fare. The whole town smells like cooking sauerkraut and the civic center smelled very strong of it. I promise it tastes better than it smells. It is served with RED hot dogs, cheese, mashed potatoes, buns and pop (which you probably call soda).
My Norwegian heritage is strong in Miss E. She wouldn’t even eat plain mashed potatoes. “The smell of sauerkraut makes me gag, Mommy. I think I am going to throw up in my mouth.” Needless to say, she sipped on a pop and ate at fabulous homemade meal of chicken and dumplings at daycare. (Thank you daycare provider, Lori!)
Nathan tried coaching the girls on eating sauerkraut. He’s a good German heritage man. They couldn’t be sold on their daddy’s persuasion.
