Post European let-down

I spent the week in Europe. Two days in England and two in Hungary. England is beautiful, with LOTS of green and rolling hills. I am a fan of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares, and he did five seasons of restaurants in England. Now the scenes I saw make more sense. Hungary, specifically Budapest, was very eastern european. The people were polite, the service excellent, but it felt like a depressed blue collar town. Our hosts were kind enough to get very nice kosher hungarian meals for us. The meat was fatty and rich, and the noodles and sauces were savory!

This weekend, my wife is going to be working around the yishuv, so she will be away for all three meals. Our good friend Steve is coming over to help fill out the table tonight.

I made some different foods this week. Our soup tonight is Kobanos and Potato soup. Kobanos are a kind of dried sausage that is very common in Israel. It is similar to dried salami and is not very spicy. We are having braised pargiot with celery and sparkling wine. Tomorrow, I'm serving a beef casserole with rice. I'm looking forward to the good food, but I think I made to much. Oh well, leftover will be excellent next week.
