Daily meals
As often, it is when you have things left in the fridge that you don't want to lose that you are the most creative.
I had this time a big piece of cabbage I have bought to make an Thaï recipe with a wok. What could I do with this piece of cabbage that was drying in the fridge days after days ?

I don't remember exactly how, but I thought to the choucroute... except I had no ham, saussage, etc.
No problem, the choucroute in fact goes very well with the fish. I could even say, it goes better with fish than with ham or saussage because the choucroute is cooked with white wine that goes better with fish than with meat...

I decided then to make a meal with a piece of Haddock I had also in the freezer and the cabbage as a choucroute.
  1. It was really good
  2. I was so proud to have made my own choucroute (first time of my life, I always have bought it in can). It is actually VERY easy to make.
I can't prevent myself to display two pictures of the choucroute making (did you know it is cooked with a cinnamon stick?) ...
