Two days prior to New Year's Eve we went to the Kreuz for our evening meal. The picture below shows the platter for one person with pork steak, mushrooms, French fries. It was enough for two! As we each had one of these platters, we took some steak home (and left behind some fries). The pork was as tender as can be with a great sauce. A salad accompanied it.
On New Year's Eve we had Raclette, something we have had before on this date as it is easy to prepare and takes little time. As well, it is relaxing.
On New Year's Day, we had breakfast with several types of fish and sauces as well as a large Pretzel which is traditional for New Year's. Accompanying it, we enjoyed a bottle of Sekt (Germany's Champagne-type wine). Yes, it was breakfast--but late morning!
Our New Year's dinner in the early evening included the goose remaining from our Christmas dinner along with various vegetables.
Brownie and Whitey, above, after our dinner was finished.
The sauce and the good bottle of wine did overcome that as did the following dishes that are traditional for Hans.
