Hmmm, what sounds good with a cup of tea? Oooh, I spy MY cookie tin, hubbys is the bigger one as he goes through cookies like its nothing. Of course he will raid mine if his is empty yet mine is not filled too often as I like certain kinds.
Yes! I have some left. Oh boy the memories....you can slowly open up the tin while the aroma drifts out to remind me of my time in Germany as a child when my Opa would take us to the zoo or the fair in Hamburg. Mmmm, peffernusse, my absolute favorite! I bought these back around the holidays at Aldis. I was so excited that they had them. I started loading up my cart with them, six bags in all, and I asked my daughter if she would like some. Of course her answer was yes, so I loaded two more in the cart! That cracked her up, but I do so love them so she had to have her own. The other chocolate stars have the very rich smell of German chocolate, am I making you drool yet? There are a few stars left, everything else is gone.
Oh, oh, and then this past weekend we went with the neighbors and friends from Wisconsin to a farmers market close to Atlanta. It was ok, definitely had a lot of food, but their European section was not want I wanted it to be. They had more Asian food. However, they did have these......
Oh my goodness! We use to go to the German bakery with my Oma or my mom, and they would have the gigantic version of these yet in dark chocolate. So good.....they have a marshmallow center that is totally different from our marshmallows, sort of creamy, not real sweet, but delicious! So on the way back home I did share with the girls in the car, the guys were up front so they missed out, and I did share a few with my daughter. Needless to say this box is now empty due to a certain female who could not just eat one! I did make it last for two days though!
So, this little oinker here needs to get back to cleaning house. Company will be here in two weeks from Germany so I have been busy cleaning, and since it is raining it is the perfect time to get inside work done. When the sun comes out I'll be busy outside which is a good thing too with all of this "fluff" I've been eating!
Extra note. I did this last week when I thought blogger photos were working. Blogger did say that they were having problems with photos, and offered a few options to upload if you were in a hurry. I hope this works this time as I have lots of photos to show.
