Asparagus & Strawberries - a dream team

May 29th, 2018 | main dishes

While asparagus was always associated with smoked ham and hollandaise sauce, asparagus is popular with us today as a salad or crunchy roasted. And the combination of salmon, asparagus, strawberries, pine nuts and fine oil is just gorgeous.

How many times did I put a pastry man – a “Stutenkerl” – into my children’s Santa Claus’ boots. And how many times did one of them land in our ready-made boots for St. Nicholas Day in my own childhood. But so far I had never baked such a pastry man myself, although it’s really easy. And the result is just fun!

Chicken in Vermouth – finally again a Captain’s Dinner

We have Chicken in Vermouth when our family calendar is marked with two letters and a laughing smiley. There are also days marked with a crying one. The letters are the initials of my dearest, obvious what the emojis stand for: Signing off and on, that’s how it is called in shipping terms. It means to come home and to go aboard a ship. Today the emoji is beaming in our calendar! Time for Chicken in Vermouth!
