Get In My Belly!

In honor of our pending move to Deutschland this summer, D and I decided to try our hand at cooking some German cuisine. The weather in VA was absolutely lovely yesterday, so how could we not take the opportunity to have our first grill out of the year...a German one no less! We bought all the fixings for a German bratwurst and saurekraut feast! I also made some pretty bangin' German potato salad as a side dish.


What would any German feast be without the presence of the most adorable Dachshund in the world?!


Salivating yet? Braised in beer then grilled brats, saurekraut, and German potato salad.
 Guten Appetit!


 This stuff beats American mayo and egg based potato salad any day! And it's HOT!


Please ignore the gaudy satellite dish in the background. The hubby isn't the most aware person while trying to snap the perfect picture. Gotta love 'em!

All in all, I think this practice round was a great success! D DEVOURED all of it. Of course, put a boy in front of a grill loaded with meat and give him a beer...you're sure to have a happy man for the rest of the evening. I can't wait to try my hand at making soft pretzels and apple strudel! To end the evening, we curled up on the couch, watched a delightfully corny made for TV movie on ABC Family and ate this:


Hello Gorgeous!!  We both had been craving cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes in DC (from the show DC cupcakes on TLC)...but a 3 hour drive for buttercream deliciousness is a little over the top. So, we settled for a decadent Chocolate Oreo cupcake from The Fresh Market. I love that place!


Please excuse the horrible photo quality. We were about 2 glasses of wine in when we remembered we had the cupcake in the fridge. I mean really, what is cooler than cutting into an already too good for words cupcake and finding the icing explodes all the way down into the cupcake?! Died.

As for today, I've got D all to myself and we get to enjoy his Monday off by lounging around the house and going to a movie this afternoon. I've got a coupon for FREE popcorn and it's calling my name! Question is...should we see Arthur or The Source Code? We're leaning towards Arthur...I can't stand watching Russell Brand host award shows, but his movies crack me up!

Hope everyone has a happy Monday!
