Day one at Maites work!

At the beginning we slowly baked a "tarte aux pommes à l'Alsacienne". A typical regional Apple pie
Can't wait to taste it!
Everything is home made at the restaurant where Maite works. Even the bread. Look at this huge bread dough!
With all this flour I think I'll sneeze...
We try to roll bread balls
That's it! We rolled 250 balls
Look to these breads. They look like cushions...

A lazy morning

Today Maite (our host) had to wake up early to go to work. So she let us have a lazy morning. Her puppy took care of us.
We discovered that Alsace is the region of hearts.
We helped Maite to begin easter decoration
Guess who had a rodeo on a sheep?!?
We had a look to the newly received postcards... Wow so many...
