Geschnetzeltes or Sliced Meat

27 Feb


A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to my friends house and join her cooking club for the day.
I was so excited to go because I had been secretly hoping I would get an invite. Although I knew at any time I could of just asked if I could come I did want to intrude.
Up until being there I really had no idea what they did together other than cook. IMG_8810_new

Well it was a nice surprise to see a couple of women with kids about the ages of mine. It was really good company for the day and we had some awesome food.


Everyone seems to be from a different country which was cool because when they alternate houses they try different foods. So there is a variety of foods they get to learn to make weekly.

This particular day my friend had asked if I wanted to make the dessert. I said YES, of course.
So I made and taught them to make my snickers cupcakes, which they were fantastic!

Then my friend made Geschnetzeltes, thats German for sliced meat. She is from Germany so I was so exited about getting the chance to learn to make a new dish from a different culture. And it was so good and tasty!
It is pretty easy to make too, I have actually made it twice since then.
Now I want to share with you a little of what was shared with me on that day. I look forward to joining them again soon!
