Month of February Goals

February 3, 2015

It seems that I get food smell memories since my stroke.  The most recent is a good sauerbraten with braised red cabbage.  So I’ll do a little shopping tomorrow after physical therapy and then start making some. I am going to use Alton Brown’s recipe. My ex used it as a base once, and it was quite delicious.

I also want to make soup dumplings.  I first read about them 4 years ago when dating my now-husband. Since they’ve gained popularity in the last few years, I figure why not try them? The nearest place to get them is in Washington, DC, though, so I’ll make them myself. I figure I can use part of the liquid and meat from the sauerbraten to make a mix for the filling.    Pictures and recipes to follow.
