Sometimes I forget I'm the one who started this damn community in the first place, and that I need to post more :P

Sunday's meal

this turned out pretty well. bratwurst served with a warm potato/green bean salad dressed with a honey dijon vinaigrette. I need to get the proportions right next time...a little less red wine vinegar and a little more honey, I think. but it presents beautifully! blanched the green beans for about three minutes, then tossed them with hot yukon gold potatoes that were chunked and boiled until tender. yum :)
