If you get a North Dakota map, draw a line from about Bowman up to Rugby and then down around Ellendale, and you have a fairly rough approximation of the German Russian triangle.

I just find more interesting things to eat every week we're here.

One of our farm bud's cousins delivered us a deer the other night. Vicki helped him skin it, and the next day we butchered everything but the 4 leg quarters. Those we packed on ice and DH & I butchered those Friday night. About 49lbs of venison in the freezer, and a little over a quart of venison demi glace.

Yesterday I made two apricot Kuchen! Lordy that's good stuff.

I'm loving the ingredients here. The meat and dairy all seem to be so much better than in Ca. Just can't find any lamb Otherwise this is a wonderful place for food.

The chicken is your own doing as true knoephla soup has no meat in it. The broth is cream and butter with no meat stock or bullion. I've been making/eating knoephla soup for a long time and I have yet to find anyone that puts any kind of meat in it. I've had it with celery, carrots and even corn.

Oops, I should have put chicken stock. Pretty much every knoephla recipe I've ever seen has chicken stock or bullion involved.

Knoephla is German for Button, hence, Kase is German for cheese. I think, however, you should pronounce Kuchen with more of a K sound at the beginning of the second syllable than a G sound.

We're in the German Russian area of SD and our language is the same here as there. However, we eat chislic and for some reason it seems that's not familiar up there.

We make our chislic from lamb.

My parents made it in Gary - back in the 20's when their first born, was obviously born. It's dumplings in chicken and potato soup. Sticks to your ribs kinda food, they grew up on in Kiev long time ago. There are plenty of Greeks, Germans and Russians that live in that part of the USA that know how to properly cook lamb.

You can find lamb at middle eastern restaurants like Ali Baba's or Aladdin's in Fargo. Also, there are some international grocery stores in Fargo that offer things around that line.

Next time we make a trip to Fargo we'll have to check it out. We love Middle Eastern food - so it willl be fun to hunt for things the pantry is low on. Thanks for the hint.
