Imke, it's so funny about native languages. I only speak English, but at the bus stop one mom always speaks to her son in Polish and there are two Indian families who will speak to each other and the kiddos in their native language. I always wonder if they are talking about me, lol.
Susanne, I've tried every variation of mashed potatoes, sour cream, cream cheese, roasted garlic, heavy cream, parmesan cheese.... I love them ALL, the kids, not so much.
Imke, I'm sure people are willing to mail to Germany, you could never leave this group!!!!
Patti, just do what you can, and it will work out. The crop might be an unexpected relaxing day in the middle of the holiday stress.
Vickie, glad the ear is clear, that is a relief!
