Fur den Papst!

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! Happy Birthday!
I think we should all have fun celebrating the birthday of this amazing man today. We are going to have Eggs Benedict sans hollandaise sauce since my kids aren't fond of sauce which makes them more like Egg McMuffins and less like Eggs Benedict, but hey, we'll just say the sauce is on the side. Way to the side! Like maybe the laundry room.

I might also pull down my pictures from Germany to show the kids what it looked like when I was there and see how rusty my high school German has really become. I was pleasantly surprised when it came back to me enough to navigate through the streets of Germany but that was only 4 years removed from high school and it has been do-you-really-need-to-know-how-many more years than that!

We will skip the pictures of the "research brewery" that I visited that March and the story about how mommy wouldn't have made it home if not for the kind German couple sitting next to her who drove her back to the train station and made sure she actually got on one. In my defense, nobody told me German beer was more potent that regular beer, but that is another story for another day. Don't believe me?

A few other ideas are:
Have a great day! Auf Wiedersehen!


  1. Great ideas and links! Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks so much for the German food link. Tacos were on the menu for tonight -- I think a switch is in order. You were way ahead of me on this one!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
