my sister in law made these, she’s from deutschland so they are genuine german tarts (i think they’re called obstkuchen …. or obsttorte? you germans might have to help me out here). either way it’s her mom’s recipe, one was of fresh strawberries and the other of tinned cherries. woooooweeeee. naturally, i stuffed my face (and had to go lie down afterward). but the best thing about them is that they’re not too sweet (as opposed to, say, lemon meringue pie) – so you don’t feel all bad for having 5 pieces.

broken glass jelly

jelly

remember that handmade soap that was all the rage a while back, it was full of different coloured chunks and smelled like strawberry and vanilla… and you thought it was so tasty looking, you could just eat it? (sometimes you tried). well now you can – with jelly (slash jello)! let’s make some – get the recipe here.

oktoberfest

oktoberfest

it looks like SO much fun! photos from the big picture.

my sister-in-law is german, and her entire family & all her friends came from germany to south africa for their wedding, and i have never ever seen anyone drink like the germans can. and not fall down drunk either, they just keep going and going. they were like the energizer bunnies of drinking and revelry. in fact, the wedding was a 3 day affair in probably the hottest february weather i have ever experienced, and while i was lying in the shade somewhere fanning myself, the germans were sitting in the full on sun going lobster red and drinking beer and wine like it was going out of fashion.

steri-stumpie

first steri stumpie billboard ever, how classic! for those non-afrikaans speakers, the headline reads “we flavour milk”. simple, to the point – i like that. i would have loved to drink my steri stumpies from glass bottles, too – industry people take note. strawberry geur for me, please.
