What I ate and cooked this weekend

Saturday.  Bearface and I were looking for Potter’s Pasties and wound up at Glockenspiel in St Paul.  We ate:

  • Fried fish sandwich with spatzle and gravy
  • Spargletoast – asparagus, mushrooms and cheese baked on toast
  • Potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce
  • Black Forest Strudel

Deciding what to order with Bearface can sometimes be a challenge because he often does not express much direction in figuring out what to eat but when I read the description of Spargletoast off of the menu, Bearface said, “That!  You had me at asparagus.”  It was simple, rich, and delicious.  I loved the thick toast and also being a fan of asparagus, mushrooms and cheese, its was hard to go wrong.  I have been craving fried fish for what’s going on a few weeks now and it is almost to the point that I am going to break down at get a Filet-O-Fish sammich.  Since my efforts to get the donut committee (or anyone) to a fish fry Friday at the Red Stag Supperclub, I was excited about the fish sandwich.  It did a good job of reminding me why I get these massive fried fish cravings and made me want more.  The disappointment was the Black Forest Strudel: I was just warm chocolate cake with cherries inside of a thin, soggy, chewy strudel ring.  The cake was adequately tasty and the real whipped cream on top was perfect but the strudel did nothing to add to the dessert.
