Today we had to get up a little earlier than before, oh goodie it is going to be a full day. Well, today the sun is shining and it is really nice out for a November day just a light jacket! YEA! So, happy the rain is gone…now stay away the rest of the trip. Today we had a huge breakfast then loaded up and headed out to Heidelberg. We visited the Castle and learned all about it and the wine. Then we went into the town for a tour and free time. Such a great place only thing is not enough time. Cute little place with many Christmas shops with lovely German gifts and ornaments. I had a wonderful time.
We returned to the boat for real German food…many different things. We had several cooking demonstrations too. We learned how to make a Alsatian flammkuchen and Rudesheimer coffee. A fun filled day so far. We have been given many wonderful German treats to eat all day too.
The Chef shared a recipe for one of the classic area items. I am sharing this with you.

1/2 oz yeast

4 1/2 oz ham

After the demonstrations, we loaded in this cute little train and headed to town for a wonderful evening of fun, food and entertainment. This was such a wonderful evening…lots of laughing. We all got to perform in some way or another tonight. The food was really good. We started with a german salad, soup, entree of pork mash potatoes, creamed cabbage, sauerkraut. Then an apple cake with coffee.
We returned to the boat and had a glassblower demonstrate many different types of glassblowing. Then we had live music and dancing. Whewwww what a day, what a day, was a lot of fun!
