Tonight was our Austria finale, but we actually celebrated Austrian food all day, beginning with delicious Austrian Sweet Crepes. (I forgot to take a picture of this one, but it was a huge hit.) Tallinn also finished his rosmahling today and his little shelf now hangs proudly on his wall. He used a few stencils and did some diamonds on the top and I helped with a flower on each side. (Addie still needs to add her details.)
Dinner was traditional wiener schnitzel, warm potato salad and asparagus with browned butter. It seems that much of Austrian food is breaded and sprinkled with parsley, so we did a lot of that. The recipes I used were from the foodnetwork.com and two were from Wolfgang Puck. I had to go to a few stores to find the veal and discovered a local wine shop for the Austrian wine-a Veltliner, so perfect with its Austrian flag on the top. The entire meal was delicious and I would definitely make it again. I don’t even like potato salad, but this was perfect, light with a hint of white wine vinegar.
And, of course, we finished the meal with the rest of last night’s spectacular apple strudel. The kids have even been singing our apple strudel song all day!
Thank you , Austria! We have loved getting to know your culture and music and especially your wunderbar food.
