Guten Tag! Over the last 3 weeks we’ve been able to do some traveling, settle into our apartment and start exploring Stuttgart. We spent Thanksgiving making some american favorites like turkey, stuffing, and mac and cheese. Luckily we have a commisary so the ingredients are easily accessible. I tried out some new recipes and everything turned out great, the trickiest part was getting used to our oven (its a drawer instead of a typical american style).
Instead of Black Friday shopping we did some shopping and exploring at the Stuttgart Christmas Festival. Its huge and has so many local artisans that sell homemade Christmas decorations.
The weekend after Thanksgiving we traveled to a small village called Gernsbach where we stayed in an inn, we were the only guests and the inn keeper and his wife cook all the meals. We did some hiking in the Black Forest and stopped by a small Christmas market in Forbach afterwards.
Sorry for the lack of pictures in this post! I will make sure to put up more 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to check out the new blog!
