I received one of my favorite text messages this afternoon, which read something along the lines of "...if you are free for dinner...am making an experimental choucroute..." I stopped what I was doing in the office, picked up my phone and immediately returned a positive response. An invitation for dinner at Susan's is pretty hard for me to refuse...
pot-au-feu, cassoulet in that cheap chunks of meat are thrown into a pot together. Here, of course, the meat is cooked with a batch of sauerkraut, which I also love. Susan made her own sauerkraut, bought 3 kinds of sausages, and threw in a generous helping of petit salé and some potatoes. There was also kimchi and peas on the side.
We started the evening with a flute of Louis Roederer Champagne, which is always lovely.
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening... Looking forward to more text messages in the future!
