Chocolate/Schokolade

Chocolate jello
Schokoladenwackelpudding

Sunday was Chocolate Weekend at the GCV&M.  It was quite interesting to taste different chocolate dishes and also to listen to a talk put on by the company Mars. 

Am Sonntag war Schokoladenwochenende im Freilichtmuseum.  Man konnte viel probieren und auch einen Vortrag über Schokolade hören.  


 This is coffee, not chocolate, with a roaster.  
Das hier sind Kaffeebohnen, keine Kakaobohen, und dazu ein Kaffeeröster.  

 The girls weigh pioneer coins and modern coins to see which are heavier.
Die Mädchen wiegen Münzen der Pionierzeit und der heutigen Zeit, um herauszufinden, welche schwerer sind.

 Hier gibt es Schokoladenkuchen zum Kosten.

 But before we enter, we see Charlotte walking towards us.
Aber bevor wir reingehen, sehen wir Charlotte auf uns zukommen.

 She is coming with us to try the cake.
Sie geht mit uns, um den Kuchen zu probieren.

 Hier konnte man Schokoladenmilch probieren, die besonders für Kranke geeignet war.

 This house had been closed for 10 years, but now is open again.  It needed repairs that were  hard to do.  It is a really cute little house.
Dieses Haus war zehn Jahre geschlossen, aber jetzt sind die komplizierten Renovierungsarbeiten fertig.  Es ist ein sehr hübsches Haus.

  1. What a delicious day!!! I love chocolate (chanda has a friend who doesn't!) and so this sounds like a very fun time. How was the chocolate jello? Did you enjoy all the chocolate you tasted? The sign on the door in the last picture was a perfect way to end the post! I'm so glad you are enjoying a wonderful summer at the Village :) I remember the girls playing three Graces at Sturbridge. The new cottage they recently opened is so sweet, and the wallpaper so pretty.

    1. Peter's sister only eats white chocolate! We were not allowed to try the jello, but it sure did look beautiful. All of the chocolate dishes were made with the American Heritage chocolate from Mars. They were all very good, some a bit too spicy for my taste (cayenne pepper), but at least not too sweet.

      Yes, we are having a good time at the Genesee Country Village, just the driving is not so easy. But Sturbridge was even more complicated for you. Miriam's first week as a helper has come to an end. She has another one next week. She will be helping with the camp "Wonderland." She is not quite sure what they will be doing.
