St. Nikolaus & Krampus
Hosts: Marianne Hasenhüttl & Simeon Ntafos
Seems like Old Man Winter is knocking on our door, reminding us that
the much-anticipated holiday season is about start! One of our most
authentically Austrian events, the visit from Nikolaus & Krampus, marks
the start of the season. Once again, Marianne, Simeon and family will
share their home and their warm hospitality. Friday morning, some of
our wonderful cooks will gather in Marianne's kitchen to prepare
Gulasch, Semmelknödel and Spätzle. Your participation and your recipes
are both welcome and necessary!
Now for the featured event! Please, parents, on Saturday, bring
Nikolaus a note sharing both your children's successes and
challenges. Also, as always, your contribution of Austrian culinary
delights will help make the event a success. Last year, we tried
something new: appetizers, then the visit of St. Nikolaus, with the meal
afterwards. It worked well, so we'll do that again. This means we'll
need several appetizers to tide us over, along with side dishes that
compliment Gulasch, and of course, some fabulous desserts. Glühwein,
sodas, etc. will be provided by the club.
A special note: St. Nikolaus needs a new assistant (thank-you Petra for
your great help in the past) to put together the bags of treats for the
kids. Please contact Yasmine if you can help out.
To RSVP for BOTH the Gulasch Prep Party AND for Nikolaus & Krampus,
please call Heidi. Be sure to let her know how many kids will attend on
Saturday, so Nikolaus will have something for them. Also, let Heidi
know what dish you plan to bring.
Not to forget - those of us who gathered at Fritzl's in Rockwall to
celebrate Austrian Independence Day back in October had a wonderful
time! The atmosphere, food and service, as all would agree, were
outstanding. The owner, Klaus was truly delightful, and we felt
completely at home. What a find - we are truly looking forward to
doing this again.
P.S. Remember: 2 weeks later, on Sunday, December 22 is the annual
Austrian Club DFW Christmas Party at our house!
