Crikey ..... how funny is my Mum? Not to mention Shane!! You'd think they were the only people in the whole world that had EVER made sauerkraut from scratch. Its been going on for almost a week now. They made it last Saturday and EVERY day Mum has taken pictures and sent Shane a text at work to show him the photo and tell him how the Kraut was going. She even tried to take a video to show him the bubbles coming up while it was fermenting. She failed miserably at that one. She couldn't hold the camera still and poke the kraut at the same time. Weird, aye?? But then my Mum is hopeless in the kitchen so if she has a success she does get a bit excited and it seems this was a success. She reckons it tastes just like in Germany and she should know cause she sure ate a whole heap of it while she was over there. We are going to have a big German night, maybe on halloween night, and have PORK (OMD I love that stuff), German sausages, The Kraut Mum and Shane made but all fancied up with bacon and stuff, knodel, German potatoe salad, mustard, bread rolls, brezels, a BIG German salad AND here's the bad part ... we will have to sit through endless holiday photos. Well it all sounds good except for the photo bit. Mum couldn't believe all the comments you blokes made when she told you she had made sauerkraut so if you want to know more just leave a comment and she'll make another batch and talk you through the process WITH PICTURES in one of MY blogs. She wants to try red cabbage next. She had great fun making it and it WAS real easy. Just as well, aye, with her limited capabilities? Personally I think this picture should be enough for you. I don't think Mum should take over my blog to do more on HER sauerkraut but if, and only if, you want more, I'll be very magnanimous (big word, aye??) and allow it JUST ONE MORE TIME. Over to you blokes!!
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
Um...I sure hope that doesn't blow the lid off...just saying.ReplyDelete
Long time ago growlmy tried to make that...well, tried is the operative word...*fail* is what was reality...BOL!
Looks good actually, makes us hungry too.
It does tend to make things blow. All that gas. Talkin' about gas!! You sure don't want to be around after Dad's been eatin' it. I think it was just a fluke that it turned out alright and a bit of luck maybe. Mum's not good in the kitchen.Delete
Pork??? Sossidge???? I think I needs to get on a plane pronto.ReplyDelete
Yeah Travis and we will be havin' pork and bacon with it too.Delete
Hide da pork before Travis gets there!ReplyDelete
Crikey Whitley ..... is he REALLY coming????????Delete
Gail and I think your Mum should cook an Eisbein for the German evening. You get a really nice big bone.ReplyDelete
We think red cabbage is yummy too.
Eisbein ... Yum!!! sounds great but best let Dad do the cooking. Trust me it will taste better if he does it. Tudel pip indeed!!!Delete
I luffs sausages, can I come ?ReplyDelete
I luffs red cabbage as well (I fink, but maybe its the peeps that luffs red cabbage ?)
Loves and licky kisses

You'd be very welcome Princess but I don't think red cabbage is Princess food. I've tried it and it gives me gas. Princess's don't do gas!!!Delete
LOL can we come over and join you? Have a tremendous Thursday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly.
You'd be very welcome Molly!!Delete
Well done!!! SHE gets extremely excited when SHE can do something, so we know what you're going through Charlie. That dinner sounds scrumptious. Hope they remember you. (Better not tell Miss Poopoo Pants about the port, though.)ReplyDelete
I'm glad someone understands the suffering I have to go through. SHE sounds a lot like my Mum. It sure is a trial, aye?? Have you had a go at those Birks, yet??Delete
All that work on the sauerkraut and I bet you don't get any of it Charlie...has to be something wrong there! /(^.^)\ReplyDelete
I'd better get some William although I have tried it before and it gave me awful gas so they might be a bit reluctant to give me another shot at it. As long as I get some of the pork that goes with it I'll be happy. I love pork!! Thanks for droppin' by!!Delete
OH YES OH YES OH YES.... LUURRVVV the red cabbage.... but this one is looking mighty fine. MMMMMMm potato salad....mmmmmm hold the meat, I'll make do with those and a hunk of smoked cheese.... crikey, now you got me drooling Charlie Mate!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Smoked cheese ...... Mum overloaded on that in Holland!! Good stuff!! I love cheese too but not as much as meat ...... sorry, Aunty!!Delete
Well, it looks like it 'posed to look. An they even put those lil bugs in it. Impressive.ReplyDelete
Hmm, jus wunnerin if the toots get fermented out. Cabbage, yu know.Delete
I'm sure yu will keep us informed.
I've tried it, Zoe. It gives me GAS big time and you sure don't want to be around when Dad eats it!Delete
We must admit when ever we travel we ALWAYS look for any german resturants to go have lunch or dinner at. The best one we found was up in Minnesota - gosh they did the best ever cucumber saladReplyDelete
Mum reckons they do good salads. I like meat, myself. Those pork knuckle bones are pretty good, aye?? Do you like a bit of oompapa music as well??Delete
Wunderbar! Shred the red cabbage and then cook it with apples. Make sure you cook the pork with the sauerkraut in a crock pot. Delicious!ReplyDelete
Mum's going to give it a try. It all sounded so easy the way you did it even Mum couldn't make a mess of that. Could she??Delete
CRIKEY CHARLIE...Being Good GERMAN Dawgs... that we Dachshunds are... we gotta say... We are very much PROUD of your Mum's Efforts... Her KRAUT looks AMAZING... and we KNOW this is going to be a True FEAST... We want to see Pictures of ALL the foodables...ReplyDelete
NO WORRIES Mate.... we are SURE that YOU will get a taste of Each Delight.
I'll be trying it Frankie and Ernie even if I have to jump up on the table to do so, aye??Delete
Boy that must be good. We don't trust our mom making that stuffReplyDelete
Lily & Edward
Well my Mum doesn't have a good reputation in the kitchen but I think she nailed this one. That only happens once in 87 million years or so!!Delete
put one more chair on the table, bet my dad would like to come to your german pawty. even when he had to swim to you :o)ReplyDelete
Your Dad would be VERY welcome Easy. The more the merrier, aye, but it is a LONG swim??Delete
mmmmm, you are making mom think about fixing spare ribs and kraut in the crock pot!ReplyDelete
Mr Bailey & Hazel
Sounds good!! Does she share with you and Hazel??Delete
Our Dad loves sauerkraut, even had it on burgers. A tip of the tail to your MomReplyDelete
Yeah .... my Dad loves it too. He'll have it with anything. Shame about the gas, aye??Delete
Mom loves sauerkraut but dad isn't a fan so it's rare when we have it around here.ReplyDelete
Aroo to you,
Your Dad should be like my Dad Sully and do the cooking. Dad's can be real good at that stuff and then they get what they want to eat too.Delete
