I finally got around to making the last recipe that I needed to for the Recipezaar Pick-a-Chef event that I participated in last month. Since I wasn’t in the mood for soup, I substituted Cynna’s recipe for Weinkraut.
The taste was pretty good – the recipe made, as is, had far too much celery seed – if I make it again, I’ll cut the amount back by at least half. We served it with some Weisswurst and Bockwurst that we got from Whole Foods, over mashed potatoes.
I still think I prefer my kraut straight up, though. — Rosie, you won the 1 Year/100th Post drawing. Drop me an email with your address so I can get it in the mail for you, or we can get together so I can drop it off to you. Congrats! I really think you’ll like it.
Isn’t it ironic that the 100th post to this blog falls on the exact day of its first birthday??
To celebrate both occasions, I’m going to do a little something special! A little contest, so to speak. The prize? A box full of goodies from Columbus. Not sure yet what exactly will be in the box (whatever suits my fancy and whatever flavors I think best represent the spirit of Central Ohio, and a few of my favorite things), but I promise it won’t disappoint.
