    Dinner 2020

    As per popular demand: another round of BBQ (electric Ersatz version): Marinated pork collar, chicken tenders and sausage “snails” ... Accompanied by a greek salad ... Red cabbage salad ... And some herb butter-stuffed sour dough baguette (from Aldi - very good) ... Washed down with a spring edition beer !
  3. May I suggest a Catalan preparation ? Chop the rabbit up in a few pieces, salt & pepper lightly dredge in flour and fry in hot olive oil until golden. Remove, add some garlic & onion. Fry until slightly colored, then add some chopped mushrooms (any will do), and - ideally - some dried ones as well. Add some Brandy and white wine. Return the rabbit, cover in aluminum foil and put into moderately hot oven to braise for 1.5h. Adjust seasoning and serve ...

    Dinner 2020

    Gas bottles have been sold out for a while. Luckily, I have this old (and pretty weak) electric grill that under these circumstances does perform well. First “BBQ” this year, with pleasant temperatures permitting: “Italian” potato salad with dried tomatoes and basil ... Green asparagus & feta frittata ... Mozzarella di buffala with the fixings ... Thüringer sausage and skewers of marinated turkey leg ... All enjoyed with a whiskey highball ! With the moon shining upon a locked down neighborhood...

    Dinner 2020

    In Spain, canned clams (or any canned seafood) is considered a dish of its own right, and - depending on the quality - fetched prices much higher than the fresh product. Berberechos are typically eaten as an aperitif, after being generously seasoned with Salsa Espinaler (or any equivalent). Usually accompanied by a glass of Vermouth ...

    Dinner 2020

    An “Indian” themed dinner ... Palak paneer, prawn curry, yellow split pea dhal, raita, coconut turmeric rice with cardamom and quick Ersatz naan. All served on some plates I bought an eternity ago in Singapore ... lovely food with lovely memories.

    Lunch 2020

    Found some freezer gold - three large braised oxtails, which were swiftly transformed into oxtail ragu pasta ... accompanied by some toasts with hummus and herring/red beet salad topping.

    I think the picture is a bit misleading. Thats the tip of a regular bamboo yakitori skewer. I haven’t used any other skewers for the last decade ...

    The sweet potatoes came from a bag 😏 and were nice. But yes, coating with a bit of oil, salt and starch is the only way to get them somewhat crunchy. Creamed spinach is indeed a basic bechamel (with sauteed onions and garlic, salt, plenty of nutmeg), rather stiff, and the thawed & drained spinach folded in. Then kept in the oven for about 20-30 min, during which the bechamel incoporated the water from the spinach and becomes silky.

    Inspired by @Margaret Pilgrims no-cook pasta sauce post, I winged something loosely based on her recipe. It is a very tasty preparation !

    Could you please elaborate on that ?
  17. Because the term “heat capacity” is not an easy concept ?

    “Himmel un Ääd” (heaven & earth), made with a great boudin noir from Strasbourg, buttery potato purée and my mothers apple sauce (curtesy of our freezer) ... comfort food at its best 🤗

    Dinner 2020

    After a Sunday full of chores and little house repairs I felt too lazy to cook - which happens very seldom, as chopping things up relaxes me after a busy day. Thankfully, I had some frozen puff pastry in the freezer and a few no-cook ingredients at hand. 5 min prep yielded an asparagus & goat cheese tarte with bacon... It was consumed even faster.

    Dinner 2020

    Grilled Thüringer sausage, quick pasta salad and a beer ... a fitting end to the first warm day of spring.

    Breakfast 2020!

    While the rest of the family enjoy their pancakes with fresh berries and honey, I much prefer a salty option, which came today in the form of an egg-topped pancake-wich ...
