    Oh no. I just remembered something. I used to hate green been soup
    (and I still am not fond of Zwetschgenkuchen) when I was a young lad.
    So one fine summer day, my mum made some Green Bean Soup. And when
    she was out of the kitchen, I poured a whole bottle of vinegar in the
    soup in order to sabotage it. My folks thought it was funny. They
    were wondering why the soup was so vinegary. Finally, I told them.
    I do like a peach cake made in the style of (I'll use my dialect here)
    kwetschekucha).

    Being ethnic Germans from Hungary, we like to eat crepes with our soup
    sometimes. We call the crepes 'Palaschinda'. They are thicker than
    your usual French crepes, and filled with apricot preserves, cottage
    cheese and cinnamon, and sometimes with poppy seed and sour cherry.
    Appelkuche sounds good.

    You just reminded me of one of the most heartwarming stories I've ever read

    I like to add a dollop of sour cream to my green bean soup.

    Ahh, green bean soup. I do like it sour. I loved the way my mother made it,
    and would not try another way. I should call it creamed green bean soup.
    I'm still learning how to properly add the cream so it does not curdle. I
    never had my mothers recipe. I just made do.

    Another favorite of mine is Green Bean soup. I loved my mothers so much
    I had to find how to make it. It’s a meal in itself, and it’s hard to stop
    eating it.
    Cook 3 large peeled and cubed potatoes till soft with salt, 1/2 teas.
    Add the potatoes and juice to a larger pot.
    Add 2 cans of cut green beans and the juice.
    Add some water.
    After the pot begins to boil lightly add some flour and corn starch.
    Fry 2 cut up strips of bacon slowly. After they are browned, add them
    to the pot, but keep the grease.
    Add parsley and chives, and I always add Mrs. Dash with everything.

    Combine some flour to the grease for a RU, brown and
    mix into pot.
    After pot has been lightly boiling for ½ hour to ¾ hour, total,
    add 1 cup sour cream .
    Mix and serve.

    Greg
