Enjoyed some of that Alsacien speciality Choucroute this evening. It consists of cabbage cooked in white wine and a variety of sausages and pork. To be washed down, of course, with German beer. The supermarkets run a promotion for choucroute in January. My wife says she made a special point to ignore it, even though she knows I love choucroute, just because she doesn't like it. I had to buy this lot myself.
