c’est chouette

While everyone else is shelling out 30 euros for un brunch, we’ve developed a Sunday morning tradition of our own.  Mon mari and I wake up at noon, have a coffee, take the granny cart to the market and pick up some fixings for our Sunday sauerkraut lunch.  I leave mon mari to pick out the porky add-ons, a smoky morteau sausage and thick-cut bacon for two.  I do not think we are the only ones either.  Each butcher at the market has a steaming vat of choucroute, often disappearing before we late risers arrive.  High-energy food for a low-energy afternoon.

Bon dimanche!

P.S. By the way, sauerkraut with fish is a surf and turf revelation!

P.P.S. Find my illustrations on my friend Meg’s blog here.
