We went out for dinner, a local restaurant sent me a gift certificate for my birthday and today was the last day it could be used. I had Schnitzel Oscar it was a very large pork schnitzel topped with Asparagus, crab and Béarnaise sauce., served with roasted red pepper garlic mashed potatoes, red cabbage and green beans. DH had the Bavarian Platter, it was schnitzel, a smoked pork chop and 1 bratwurst served with red cabbage, German fried potatoes, sauerkraut and green beans. We were both pleased, it sure beat that lobster dinner I had on my birthday....the one serves with 3 green beans and butter for dipping that wasn't melted ;) lol!

both of your dinners look soo appetizing and HUGE--don't you just love bavarian size dinner portions? sb, how about we declare this to be your official birthday meal--after all, it Was a birthday gift, right? and file the other away to tell as amusing (by now) stories of 'failed' b-day outings, at social gatherings. you know, sb, just like you've already been doing here at dc. live to eat and to laugh....

...looks like a great place for a return engagement, and don't forget that extra order of potato pancakes to take home....

S&P, a cook after my own heart with two startches

The Bavarian platter looks fantastic Somebun. A little bit of everything in the meat department, breaded, smoked and the sausage. Very nice.

Last night I went to start the roasted garlic for the sandwich spread and only had 3/4 of a bulb left so I reheated the previous night's picatta. I'll get to the brats tonight.
