as you see we are closed for RVSP due to space limit, although it shows 30 members plus guests we actually have about 10 people more.
It takes a group effort to make a successful event. I have 5 people without a dish response, please let me know what dish are you bringing if you need help with dish decisions scroll for past comments read links or contact me. Here is the current foodlist with dishes. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1o94_OeIFqYZMf4_5T3JoSg-tW67nJFt2csyXCWqB_WE/edit
I understand this is a busy season for everyone and for me as well, I wish to close the foodlist updates by tonight.
Be also be informed that a new direction info to the location will be posted so that people can easily find it. And at last, since we all are depending on your dish (lol) we are hoping you can make it on time at 5.30pm but please drive safely.
Now I want to say thank you for all your effort, your artistic cooking, your participation and let's enjoy a German Christmas Party!
Your Event Hosts Simona and Heidi
Liebe Mitglieder, you are cordially invited to join our 2013 Weihnachtsfeier!
This is a potluck gathering, checkout the "Food list" below and let us know in the comment or add to list what will you be bringing; we are hoping to taste awesome dishes. - Beautiful German Christmas music will be played in the background and we will be singing carols along with the German Christmas carol singers. - If you have a German Smoker and a colorful Nutcracker please bring it with you. Heidi and Simona are working hard to make this a memorable event so come!
Learn about some German Traditions: Christststollen – This is a braided fruitcake made of almonds, rum, candied lemon and orange peels. Gluhwein – This is a mulled spiced wine. If possible, make this immediately prior to your gathering and allow it to simmer as guests help themselves. Lebkuchen – Gingerbread! Serve gingerbread men with a gingerbread house decorated on the table beside them. If you are adventurous, have a gingerbread house-making contest – the winner can receive a prize of a nutcracker or other German ornament. If you have made your gingerbread a day or more before your gathering, consider using a German smoker to simulate the scent of fresh baked gingerbread with incense. Quetschenmännchen – Plum men. At one time these were given by young men to the gals they wanted to court, today these fill the day with love and fun. Make your own Quetschenmännchen by making a man out of prunes on toothpicks. Give them a set of clothes and a smile with icing and the silliness is ready for eating. Brenten – These are almond cookies cut into various shapes. One way to serve these German cookies could be as ornaments on a small Christmas tree.
If anyone has a question do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you!! Above all remember, Frohe Weihnachten (or Merry Christmas)!
- Robert, Heidi and Simona
