So… all I needed was the sauerkraut, and Jackie picked it up at the store yesterday. I really wanted to try the sauerkraut pie. It didn’t let us down. It’s delish!! We sent a piece to our neighbor Laura, whose background is Polish and Russian. She LOVED it! Home-baked comfort food. Too bad I didn’t get the kielbasa! You can serve it as a main dish… add a salad? Or, it can be a side…with ham or pork or sausages.
And, since I hadn’t satisfied my sweet tooth with the chocolate cake, I made that, too! My simple dinner needed a dessert! So here is the chocolate cake made with mayo and coffee. There are several versions on line, complete with frosting recipes. I chose this one from the Joy of Baking site and added the cocoa cream frosting from my first and favorite cookbook:McCall’s. Mine is quite tattered, but has lots of basic recipes in a simple format.
Yummy! That’s it for today! Hope you’ve made something delicious for dinner, too! Enjoy!
Ciao for now! Patty ✌️🐥🤗👩🏻🍳
