Gang Dang Thai curry with steamed Tofu, Thai-hot, with brown rice and a bottle of Heineken for dinner today. 😀. All is well with the world!

Grüne Soße with Pellkartoffeln (potatoes boiled with the skin) and boiled eggs. This is a VERY German speciality from the Frankfurt region with lots of green herbs, particularly served on Holy Thursday. In Brussels I will unfortunately not be able to collect all the herbs which are at home in Gemrany sold in bunches on markets and in supermarkets. Instead I will just take parsley, basilic, dill, chervil and sage. For the original version you need herbs like borage, cress, sorell and chives instead of basilic and sage.

As a Lutheran protestant (not deeply religious, but respecting the rules) I will serve fish for the family tomorrow. Maybe German recipe as well, cod with mustard sauce, otherwise Italian style, sole filets on spinach with bechamel sauce, baked in the oven. Nice German Weißburgunder as a beverage.

Happy Easter, Zupfgeiger,

Your use of herbs for the potato and egg dish reminds me of a dish I love to prepare this time of year when ‘shad’ are running. The fish itself is filled with tiny bones such that it’s impossible to get a bite without a mouthful of bones. Shad Roe on the other hand is lovely. Here, I buy it by the pair, 2 sacs, filled with the tiny eggs. I coat each one with a mix of chervil, Italian parsley, tarragon, dill, sage, and basil. I add a bit of salt and cayenne pepper. The roe is now green with all the herbs. I add good olive oil to a pan and cook the roe on medium high heat. It is necessary to place a screen cover over the pan to prevent the popping eggs from covering the counter or burning the cook. Serve hot with a dash of lemon and hot sauce.
I will likely cook this on Good Friday!
Your fish dish sounds lovely!
Cheers,
Jack

Hi Jack

will try your recipe. Thanks for that. I don't know what a shad is but seems to be similar to a sole.
Just put a lamb haunch into the oven. will stay there for 4 hours at low 130 C temperature. A bottle of Gigondas is waiting as well while Sebastian is eating his first Easter chocolate eggs...

Enjoy the holidays.

A slice of blueberry banana pie. I recently made a camera handle for a photographer friend, and wouldn’t let him pay me, so he brought one of his wife’s pies.🙂

I cooked supper tonight...grilled pork chops, baked sweet potato, and roasted root vegetables....turnips, rutabaga, carrots and radishes. I simply dice or slice them, lightly coat them with olive oil, salt & pepper them, spread them on a cookie sheet, and stick them in the oven, at 425 F for about an hour.

I have just enjoyed a wonderful breakfast! I drove to Oriental.....a small town eight miles from where I live....and ate at "Brantley's Village Restaurant." (I usually eat there on Thursdays at lunch and on Saturday mornings) They have a good buffet breakfast on Saturday, and it seemed better than usual this morning. I had bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs topped with sausage gravy, homestyle potatoes, a biscuit, strawberries, fried apples and a banana nut muffin! If I get a snack about mid-morning, I think I may make it until lunchtime??? LOL

Just finished an omelet with chopped up leftover grilled pork chop and cheddar cheese, and a slice of rye toast. If my wife and I have any leftover meat from supper, it usually goes into an omelet for breakfast the next morning. This one was good!!!

I have just finished eating liver and onions, with collards and potato salad. I am STUFFED! ......and I'll bet I haven't had liver and onions in twenty years or more!???
My wife and I usually eat Thursday lunch at a restaurant in Oriental....fried chicken & collards on the buffet. We usually eat Friday lunch at a seafood restaurant in Bayboro.....usually scallops and shrimp. We've become pretty good friends with a couple of the waitresses, and we were chatting with one of them last Friday, and somehow the conversation got around to collards. We told her that we usually ate collards in Oriental on Thursday. "We've got collards on Thursday, too!" she exclaimed! We decided to try them today. and truthfully, they were not as good as the ones we usually get in Oriental. Instead of fried chicken, I ordered liver & onions. It was EXCELLENT!!!

I've just polished off a bit of chocolate, which came as a welcome treat after shivering through a performance by Bernie Griffen and the Grifters. The wind was chilly, and naturally, so were we.
