First Grief, Then A Homely Little Friday Treat For Supper....


I had to get over to my club, to interview a new member Friday afternoon- about 4PM. I was a little late, but knew my buddy would be there to start the interview! I walk in about 20 minutes after, and ask "Is he here?" Nope. This was the second interview he had missed, and I was pissed... Called him, and he explained he had a flat 35 miles away, and would be late. He was late already, and hadn't called us- why not? This guy is a friend of a pardner I have in our Hunting Club up North, and he knows alot of people I know.. not getting off on the right foot with me. Our club is a working mans' club- but hard to get into, average wait= 14 years... He promises to be there today at noon- and he had better be...
Got out of the club, and zoomed to the local meat market to pick up some Kielbasa- a Polish sausage very popular around here. Simmered in beer for 1 hour, got out the Polish mustard, catsup, and horseradish sauce and had a quick, but excellent Friday treat! Wife made brownies for later- the Dutch sweet tooth will never die..

We are huge sausage fans here - and have a fabulous butcher in town that has a special way with pork - from hams to kielbasa. It helps that the pigs are just down the road a couple of blocks!

Sometimes it is good to live in a farming community! I know the meat at the butcher is fresh because I saw it walking in the pen yesterday!

I used to make sausages back in my restaurant days. store bought can't hold a candle to what the local guys can produce.

Casdok said...

I can understand why this man is not getting off on the right foot with you!

dana- The average neighborhood meat market around here will sell more Kielbasa than Brats! Everybody knows which day of the week they make sausage!
Jeff- Agreed. Have made my own before- alot of work but kind of fun!
marmy- Sorry about your allergy- I eat a fair amount of pork...
DogB- All worked out, but getting that many chances is rare!
Odat- I'm not a fan of Kraut, but will have a little Kapuska on the side, if available!
Jen- Brat grilling season is coming....
casdok- Clubs' a nice place, I just don't want to be there 3 days a week!
Har- capped membership at 600, most join for life. Probably 15 memberships a year come up...

The sausages of my youth were a foul affair made of wartime aircraft grease and sawdust wrapped in an old stocking.
The last twenty years though have seen a reversal of this fortune to the extent that we now have some brilliant butcher in this country selling excelent sausages for all tastes. My local butcher is Edwards of Conwy.

I'm selective eating sausage- as long as its not too spicy I can eat just about any kind. I think Chicken-apple sausages are my fav

oh man, I have eaten many a stadium kielbasa before I went veg. That's what I miss the most--brats and kielbasa.

meredic- The Brits have long been the best judges of good wine, malt beverages, food, and many things too numerous to mention. It seems only recently, they have started producing and processing some of the beautiful foods they appreciate. You guys always made good cheeses! From your last post, it's time to master the great art of BB-Q!

P.S.Savant- Sausages are not the rough and tumble last resort food they used to be! Quality is a must, but the flavors available are amazing! Truly "peasant food" now a noble choice!

Tavolini- Come back to the Dark side, Luke- we eat better, and sleep well!

Akelamalu said...

How rude of him not to telephone to let you know!

We have sausages from a local farm that rear their own beef and pork and make their own sausages - they are delish!

I found you over at Roger's Idaho Photo blog, and I am glad I did, but now my stomach is growling.

That looks like it was very tasty.

Excuse me while I go make myself a snack now. :)
