A little while ago, [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith and I happened to be talking about German cooking and how all recipes seemed to be quite heavy on meat.

I think this is mostly the case as after WWII, eating (and being able to afford to eat) a lot of meat was seen as a status symbol and possibly even healthy. So, dishes that used to be reserved for Sundays or even once-a-month-after-payday, became a daily feature in the German diet.

Older people might also have been eager to indulge after decades of war, recession, war, rationing that seemed to go on forever...

So I thought I'd give you some German recipes that don't warrant a trip to the butcher.

I hope you guys like potatoes and eat eggs and dairy, though.

Sorry about the messy plate - Ida decided to cook with me and I was too busy to keep her from pulling the pots off the cooker or burning herself so my plating skills suffered a bit.

Enjoy!

I am planning on cooking "Silesian Heaven" tomorrow, so hopefully I will post that and the recipe for Stewed Cucumbers tomorrow evening :)
