News from the market

Since it was such a rainy and grey day yesterday, I felt like we really needed some winter food for dinner.

So these goodies from my trip to the market on wednesday











All went into a big pot to boil into this



And in a bowl for this



Vegetarian Gerstensuppe and salad with red cabbage, carrots and apples. True winter food. Feeds the friends who were invited, the obligatory 'I-miscounted-the-people-again' additional hungry mouth and the also obligatory 'can-I-bring-somebody'-friend.

Ten people crowded around a just a bit too small table and heaty discussions... its really good to have a full house from time to time. Although I realised that I really am not in the most social of moods. My nerves are not so good and since I don't like cooking so much I was already quite tense when the people arrived.
I guess I'll have to accept that for now, I'm going for a few days of wellnessing next week and it won't be necessary to socialise a lot. ;o)

I agree, it was really wintery food.

I made a stew with meat, potaoes, celery roots and Steckr├╝be. Except for the meat everything was not only organic, but also locally grown! (ein Biohof 1km von hier entfernt der nach Demeter Richtlinie bewirtschaftet und auch liefert) I made the stew last week and it was a blast! Wintery foods are great.

I have a seasonal recipes book with 365 recipes divided by seasons and I love it.
Looks like you had a good time.

I never seem to be able to cut the red cabbage into thin stripes, which would be neccessay for Ron to eat that salad. i haven't eaten in years, but I grew up with.

For the red cabbage, I think you need a big, long, sharp knife, and a bit of patience. I still think I should have cut it finer, it was a bit tricky to eat ^^
