Ready For Christmas - In the Wurst Way!!!!


MB is a man of many traditions. Every year, he and VC would drive an hour to visit the "authentic" German market to stock up on wursts (love that word!!), Brochen, German Ham, and "Gelts" (click to see fun pic :D ....

However, we recently got word from another stubborn German that the store had gone out of business!! This sent MB into a funk - and onto the interwebs -

....Where he finally located a German company that was able to ship him some Westhepalian Ham and Gelb Wurst in a frozen state.

It wouldn't have been Christmas without it.

What Christmas foods can you not live without?

------------------------
[P.S. I like to impress MB with my knowledge of German (which I pronounce -"Scher-man"); words include: beer garden - which I pronounce "bier gar-ten" - and "shanken" - my word for German ham. Oh, and a long drawn out auuuuuuuuges "eyes" Gets him every time!)]

Sehr gut meine liebschen. Ich hatte keine ahnung das sie hatten deutsche familie verbindungen! ;) **

My 'must have' Christmas treat is probably nothing more complicated than a large tin of Cadbury's Roses chocolates to share ...except bagsie I the green triangle ones!

(**German text brought to you courtesy of a German language O'level and, er, if I'm being honest, Google Translate)!

Men and their meat...can't come between that! We actually have a German kitchen nearby that my husband loves to buy all kinds of sausage-y. meat-y stuff at, so if MB is ever jonesing for that stuff let me know!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!! xo

We don't really have traditions when it comes to Christmas food. As long as there is chocolate, I'm good!

How weird is it that I can't think of one particular Christmas food that I can't live without? :o(

Glad he got his foodstuffs!

There's not really any Christmas foods I can't live without. But I really need my Lipton's French onion dip and Ruffles potato chips for New Year's Eve....

Janna Bee said...

All my Mom's Christmas cookies... and she stopped making them years ago. So I had to pick up the tradition.

Have a Merry Christmas Carma, MB and VC!

Tamales! We have them shipped from Fort Worth, Texas. We chicas can't do without our Tejana holiday traditions. This year, Mr. Fairway put his 2 cents in, too. Ordered a smoked turkey from Tyler, Texas. In fact, we're waiting for it to arrive this afternoon...But I understand MB's passion in the Wurst way. Mr. F and familia are from Wisconsin, home to the bratwurst, among others...

I love my brother-in-law's sweet potato casserole...it's SO fattening, but is amazing! :-)

When I was in retail I started the tradition of always having Mac and cheese from the box for Christmas dinner because I'd be too exhausted for anything else. Now when I have dinner with other people, I eat the wonderful food they worked all day to prepare, and I miss my Mac and Cheese. Don't tell anybody, okay?

We don't have a standing tradition for any food - but I am starting one!! Pavlova!!! I LOVE pavlova. If I was born in Australia, this would be our family tradition already but I was not so I'm going to have to push myself to make the new tradition.

I don't have any "musts" but I do enjoy some home-made candy.

I hope you are enjoying your holiday and your German treats. (My German treat is working today.)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

AHAHAHAHA! LOVE it!

I can't think of any 'must haves' Christmas food-wise...but we gotta have our brown sugar and maple ham that is cooking in the crock pot as we speak! ;)

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas, Carmen! :)

Amanda said...

No real food traditions...that is, unless you count just eating a ton of it!!!

Be blessed girl!

Merry Christmas to you! I love your tradition of wurst. I don't eat meat, but we always have to have some form of turkey at our house. It's been a new tradition to have chili on Christmas Eve too!

PJ said...

Hey Carma! Sthanks for stopping by! I spent a year in West Berlin and LOOOOVed it! Is your hubby German? If he is, I don't know what dialect he would speak, but in Berlin I learned a few phrases, such as: Ich(ish) liebe (leeba) diche (dish) means I love you, and saying Mine liepchen means my sweet heart. I know a few more words, but I don't remember enough for a conversation.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

My favorites are carrot casserole and chocolate.

We ate Finnish ham, but we can live without it.

Happy holidays!

Yaya said...

Honey Baked Ham!! Every year. It's a tradition I grew up with and I've "convinced" Josh to join in on that tradition too!
