Something very simple today, and since today is Thursday I went for meatballs. I’m sure everyone knows meatballs, in any form, stuffed, baked and with variety of sides.

Simple potato gratin with salmon

I don’t know if it’s me, or the Winter, but the last few weeks I have been feeling rather.. well, sleepy and more or less in energy saving mode. My motivation, or better said the lack of it, even got as far as the kitchen.

Potatoes and sauerkraut pot with cured pork

You know, I actually wanted to show you few more Oktoberfest recipes, but a fried chicken is pretty straight forward and Sauerbraten, which literally translates into sour roast, takes about a week to prepare.
