Choucroute Garnie (Kleine Schlachtplatte)

Today’s  late lunch / early dinner has send me way back to my day’s of gluttony. I will have to live on apples for the next few days to make up for today’s culinary excess, but it was well worth it 🙂
After a few days of eating mostly fruits and vegetables, my cravings for some hearty soul food got the best of me and I gave in to my innermost desires of preparing and enjoying a beautiful “Choucroute Garnie”, also known in some parts of Swabia as “Kleine Schlachtplatte”.
(A “Kleine Schlachtplatte” consists of sauerkraut, boiled pig such as belly, loin, or knuckles, sausage such as blood pudding, fresh liverwurst or knackwurst and bread or potatoes – as opposed to a real  “Schlachtplatte”, which is eaten only on the day of butchering and processing a Hog and usually consists of sauerkraut, boiled pigs head or belly, fresh liverwurst and fresh blood pudding. Obviously, I had to make do with a “Kleine Schlachtplatte” today, which nevertheless was divine and deeply satisfying.

Steamed Cod With Caraway Potatoes, Lima Beans And Tomato Sauce

>
>
Cod  used to be one of the cheapest and most widely used fish. How times have changed. Today I paid $ 11.00 for these two small pieces of fish at my local fishmonger. How sad 😦
However, I am glad I spend the dough, the dish was excellent and well worth the cost ( about $ 15.00 for everything, one portion. Imagine I wanted to sell this in a restaurant at 20% food cost – $ 75.00 sales price ! No wonder the portions of real food in restaurants are getting smaller by the day. And never mind feeding a family of four on a average salary with food like this 😦

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !   (For most of us, anyway 🙂 )
