It was a good day to stay home and do some cooking. There's a dinner I love to make that reminds me of my time in Germany, and that was on the menu last night.
Ben's heading back to the University tomorrow, so it was a send off dinner as well. In the photo above, my apron is in German, a novelty print with the title, Cooking with Alcohol. In keeping with the theme, I'm holding a Hof Brau Haus Hefeweizen beer.
For the meal, I got out my collection of glass steins from breweries I'd visited in Germany; that was fun!
I made red cabbage and schnitzel with a sour cream dill sauce. Those aren't sausages on the right -- they are fingerling potatoes; on the left, a pretzel roll. Our friends came over and we had a nice, relaxing, delicious meal that included coconut cream cake. It was not a night for dieting!
After Ben drives off this afternoon, I plan to go to the pool to swim laps, and then spend some time working on snippet roll swap that is due in a few days. I've already collected a lot of fabrics and trinkets to choose from to create with -- now, I just need to decide and start sewing! I may make two while I'm at it. What are you working on this weekend?
