Sunday Dinner and Dark Days 14: Sauerkraut and Sausage

I have a lot of homemade sauerkraut in the freezer!  And it's time to eat down the freezer.



Menu:
sauerkraut and sausage
garlic mashed potatoes
glazed carrots (honey, butter & marjoram)
applesauce



We needed the carrots for the color, or else the plate would have been very brown.  Not the color we hunger for in late winter!

Saturday:thaw sauerkraut and sausage in fridge

Sunday morning:slice carrots into coins - place in saucepan on stove
chop potatoes - set in oven on timed bake
combine sauerkraut and sausages - set in oven

Sunday noon:
set table
steam carrots, glaze them
put applesauce in glass bowl



Dark Days ingredients:  organic sausage, homemade sauerkraut, organic potatoes, organic garlic, butter, organic carrots, honey, homemade applesauce

  1. I love that phrase "eat down the freezer." Like it's some sort of extreme sport.
