The last few market trips I’ve seen these tiny spotted eggs. I didn’t know at first that they are quail eggs. I have also never tried them, have you? Not knowing what to do with them I repeatedly passed them up until this week. From what I read they taste like regular eggs except they are tiny. I’m really excited to cook these itty-bitty eggs and will share my “creations” soon.
I also picked up a loaf of bread that smells like heaven. It was still warm -which is something I cannot resist. The loaf was labeled King Ludwig Bavarian bread. The crust is crusty and the inside is airy and light. It turns out that it is made with rye, spelt and malt. The taste is nutty and slightly sweet. I was so excited to find it because I’ve really wanted to taste spelt bread. Yay! I’m going back for another loaf tomorrow.
Whenever I find fresh Brussels sprouts I have to buy them. I prefer them fresh but won’t complain if only frozen are available. This time instead of roasting I shredded them and sauteed with a little olive oil then topped with Amelia’s Spicing pecans. We both loved how great the Brussels sprouts tasted in this new cooking way for us. Persimmon was on sale so I grabbed a couple Persimmon to make my Avocado and Serrano Ham Salad.
The smell was sweet, with a typical wheat beer scent as well as hints of grapefruit. It tasted just as it smelled and really good. The color stayed cloudy like a Weiss beer but it didn’t maintain the head. Instead moments after pouring the head fizzed down the same as a soft drink. At only 2% alcohol I could easily drink…about 5 of these before feeling tipsy. Unfortunately I only had one though. (lol) I hope the market carries it long term because this would be a great beer for hot summer days.
What new foods did you try or purchase this weekend?
Have a great Sunday and great week ahead. By the way don’t forget to enter my cookbook giveaway. I’m giving away a copy of An Edible Mosaic cookbook. The giveaway will end on this Wednesday!
