Germany Day 5-6: homemade food and coffee

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚ I arrived Shanghai, China last night and have some jet lag right now (woke up at 4AM). I still have few things to show you about my stay in Germany before I move into Shanghai adventures. So here they come…. last few meals at the mountain, two homemade meals cooked with my beloved Mara and lovely pictures of coffee! ENJOY πŸ˜‰

My favorite Bavarian food: Dumplings, these are filled made with herbs and bacons, served in a clear soup (probably beef stock)


more dumplings


this is Erding, a small town 45 min away from Munich, where Mara and Gunther live. It’s small but sophisticated.


homemade meal #1 prepared mainly by me πŸ™‚


Baked salmon with onions and a chinese stir fry of veggies.



Dessert: expresso + chocolates! πŸ˜€


And here are the most beautiful coffee pictures I’ve ever seen and I can proudly say I took them! πŸ˜†

Mara’s latte


Coco’s capucchino



and look what the bottom of the cup says: More Eroticism please!


homemade meal #2 prepared by Mara and Gunther

fresh baked bread + smoked trout



spicy sour chicken + veggie stir-fry + jasmine rice


Dessert: tiramisu
