Every year, at the start of summer – this could be sometime between June 20-22 – the kindergarten where my son goes to organizes a Summerfest joined by the kids’ families. We would pitch in food, drinks and tokens and then sing and eat – a bonding of sorts. Above would be apple cake, a variation of Apfelstrudel and cinnamon rolls…my favorite but I’d prefer cinnabon.
For this year, it’s a bit nostalgic too as one of the pedagogues (Gabi) has to leave for another job. She’s been one of the two who tapped my older son’s potentials – to send him straight to grade 1 instead of a preparatory class. She recognized the inquiring attitude in him that’s why she advised me to say no to preparatory class. She’s also the one who requested for some puto. 🙂
These are the puto I baked, I tried coloring some with pink and they were the first to go when served. I’m sure the kids were the ones who took them. 😉 See more puto photos here.
This year, the weather cooperated well, we were able to stay outside without rain or cold winds – it was pure sunshine so we stayed the whole time at the garden, the kids performed a special number about a caterpillar turning to a butterfly. We also gave Gabi potted plants and herbs for her garden! (I want all those that she got lol).
A regular in every summer fest – grilled sausages! Name it we got it! Bratwurst, Käsekrainer, Frankfurters, Berner Würstl and a lot more…but no, we don’t have canned Vienna sausage. 😀 The other pedagogue’s husband was kind enough to be in charge of this portable grill…we’ve been using this for 4 years now.
No rice served…just potato salad, macaroni salad and lots of condiments for the sausages.
