Meal #103: Dinner

We bought some sausage kabobs from a local producer – they’re so cute! I made polenta and a mixed vegetable sauté with zucchini, bell pepper, onion, garlic, tomato, and mushroom. It was all simple and good. Gary and Adam grilled the sausages and the meal was complete. Yum!

Meal #64: Dinner

I made Ina Garten’s perfect spaghetti with vodka sauce. It was another cold rainy evening in Savoie, so we needed to turn on the oven for some heat:) Ina’s baked vodka sauce was just the thing! Creamy, sweet-earthy, perfect! The zucchini was tender and delicious as well.

Meal #49: dinner

Thanks to our lovely friend Elodie, we already knew about a regional speciality called Raclette. She recently hosted a lovely Raclette dinner- we were hooked. It wasn’t until a few weeks before we left for Europe that we learned that Raclette is a very popular regional dish here in Savoie! Lucky!

I started the meal with a generous glass of Bonal, of course. I made fresh green salads with a sharp mustard and red wine vinaigrette- just the way we like it. We also had skewers of onion, mushrooms, and zucchini, crusty French bread rubbed with garlic, and boiled baby potatoes. All covered in hot, bubbling slices of Raclette. Wow! I’m so glad Elodie taught us all about this fun and delicious French tradition!
