Last night was homemade white bratwurst made with pork and chicken breast, sauerkraut, and fried potatoes washed down with homebrewed kolsch.
Today the wife is browning a big pot roast to cook all day in the oven.

Bigos

ummm, Bigos! my wife made some bigos for a small New Year's Eve gathering we had. Bigos is another one of those dishes that are different each time you make it, but always good!

But you've got a "house" flavor, right? In other words, in a blind taste test - you could pick out your wife's Bigos every time. Our cabbage is just about ready. Whole heads fermenting in a big barrel. Looks good, smells good/gross at the same time...

One of my favorite dishes is fried chicken livers and cream gravy or grilled chicken livers with boiled or scrambled eggs.

They don't know what they are missing.  ;D

 I made some killer pork tacoslast night, as a last hurrah before I left for Ohio. Took two nice pork roasts, and browned them, with some salt in pepper. Cooked them for about 4 hours in a mixture of fresh squeezed orange juice, beer, and beef broth, with a bit of fresh oregano, a couple bay leafs, a few cloves of garlic, and two onions quarted. Oh yeah, and a bottle off beer.
   Once the pork was cooked through, I strained the liquid to get all the chunks out, and put it back on the pot, to a hard boil. I shreadded all the porkm and threw in in the boiling liquid. Once it was just about boiled off, I added a bit of cumin, the juice of two lines, and finely diced a chipotle in adobo, and added a good bit of the adobo sauce too. Mixed it all upm and let it simmer for about half an hour.
  My only regret was I did not make a batch big enouh to bath in. It was great!

My wife and son just returned from the mainland.  We have a welcome home aloha tradition - big time Saxer family comfort food - baked macaroni, cheese and cubed ham casserole.  Corn nibblets on the side and a squirt of ketchup on the macaroni.

Simple pleasures are the best!  I've been eatin' this since I was knee-high to a grasshopper.

Our family traditional spinach/beef lasagna.  One layer of chopped spinach with cottage, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, a layer of ground beef in tomato sauce, topped with a mixture of the 2.

I had family over, and we did a simple platter kind of meal with suho mesa, kulen, and kobasice sausages all sliced up, with cold smoked cheddar, cold smoked pepper jack, and unsmoked sage derby...sliced cucumber, pickles, green olives, fresh red pepper, black olives, tomato, etc., and a goodish bit of croatian ajvar.

People liked it (what's not to like?), but respecting my family's general inclination to dryness, I saved the glass of Zwack slivovitz til guests had taken their leave!   ;D

suho - bosnian ; that's what was bugging me

what brand is the croatian ajvar? Better than the macedonian stuff?

So, with the "dryness" - would you not eat meat if they were vegetarian or skip cheese if they were lactose intolerant? Just saying, that's their choice - it's your house. Not trying to start a family feud, just wondering.
