Well, we made it through the first week of school. All the kids were excited, because I kept the German school tradition alive and made each of them a Schultute (sugar cone). Usually you get one the first day of Kindergarten, but since I heard the boys complain that they NEVER, oh.. NEVER got one when they started Kindergarten and since I had no pictures to proof that they got one, I made each of the kids one. Boy did they love it.
Each Schultute was filled with candy for the boys and the Princess had lots of coloring, lunchbox containers, plush animals and little nick knacks inside to sweeten her Kindergarten days. What a fun tradition and I remember getting my Schultute when I started Kindergarten many many moons again in Germany.
In case you are looking to make a Schultute of your own, check out my tutorial and have lots of fun. Really is simple to do.
Okay now that we shared a German Back to School tradition it’s time to talk dinner ideas. What will you be dishing up this week? I’m so done with the HOT Florida Summer days and totally ready for fall; maybe if I start some fall cooking the sun will cool off and give us some wonderful fall days to enjoy *I know, a gal can dream, right…?*.
So here is what we will be dishing up this week… what ya think… any likes?
