Stuffed To The Gills ...

Being the spouse of a chef is great, unless she is testing a lot of recipes, doing them over and over again, to get them right. Don't get me wrong, it always tastes great (to me anyway, because I am easy-going), but there is always a lot of food.

On today's menu were meat-filled Maultaschen, Käsespätzle (layers of spaetzle, cheese, and caramelized onions, baked over), Flammkuchen (a sort of pizza with a very, very thin crust, usually topped with sour creme or crème fraîche, onions, and bacon), and chocolate cake. I am glad the pretzels didn't make it into the oven.

For me it was back to doing floor work in the bar, closing off the gap on the south end, and installing baseboard.
