Grilled Cheddar and Swiss on Sourdough / English Breakfast Tea and a splash of milk So good! Winter comfort food.
Looking out onto Main Street from our window table. Looking forward to returning soon. It was very good.
Last Thursday I hosted book club. It starts at 7 so most people eat dinner before they arrive. The dark chocolate, the red grapes, the raspberry rugalach and roasted almonds were the preferred snacks. I ate a few pieces of the vegetable tray with some hummus but threw them all in a pot today with an onion (chopped) and a couple of garlic cloves. I debated chopping them up first but did it the lazy way. Added a can of tomatoes and a rind from the Parmegiano-Reggiano. Salt, pepper and a bottle of water. (The portable dishwasher was hooked up to the faucet) After it simmered awhile, the carrots cooked, I got out the immersion blender and then added canellini beans. A tasty soup on a snowy day.
Baby spinach. Sautéed in olive oil and garlic with pine nuts.
Poppyseed cheesecake and a piece of plain accompanied by a pot of peppermint tea. From the Winterfeld Marketplatz.
