Back in April Edson, Edson's parents, Rabea and I had gone to the Pumas v. América fútbol (soccer) game. We made a bet and decided that the loser(s) would have to make lunch. It didn't go so well for the Pumas, so Rabea and I made a German / American lunch.
(Side note: The Pumas have been pretty horrible recently and it doesn't look like it's going to turn around any time soon. I'll just cling to the memory of when they were the League Champions in Spring 2011. They'll come back.... one day. I've had practice at sticking it out and being a loyal fan through horrible seasons, awaiting a comeback-- I am an Orioles fan after all).
We planned the lunch to coincide with the Champions League Final - it seemed appropriate since two German teams (Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund) were playing.
|with our country appropriate ingredients: pickles from Germany|
and Old Bay from
We also enjoyed German beer.... out of a Baltimore Orioles mug. Just trying to keep the Germany and US theme going :)
|our lunch - yum!|
