We went out to dinner with friends. We shared a flatbread made with three types of mushrooms, goat, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and scallions. I had loin lamb chops with a balsamic vinegar sauce, garlic mashed yukon golds and roasted asparagus with a red zinfandel. Dessert was back at our friends home.

Served with mustard sauce?? I love it, but my family is from the Dortmund area where it is a normal accompaniment. Mrs Dawg is from the Black Forest where mustard would be frowned upon with Kassler.
Danes don't always use mustard sauce.

I used Google maps. According to the directions from my house, it would take 6 hours and 10 minutes to drive to Hoffman's. I guess I'll ask on Chowhound if anyone knows of a good German butcher in Greater Montreal

My wife is out of town on a girl's weekend with her sister, so it was Thai takeout tonight.

Ever since the thread about scalloped potatoes got started I've had a hankering to use the leftover ham for a cheesy ham and potato bake. Made two pans, then promptly wrapped and froze one while the second was baking. Had it with salad. Still have just enough ham for either bean soup or hoppin' john next week.

It was the last of the leftovers for dinner last night. SO had chicken and veggies and I had last of the calzone and a salad. Ready for the week and new leftovers now.

+1. Glad you liked them. Whenever I make them, I'm taken back to duck hunting season and time spent with my cousins and grandparents. The smell of peat bogs burning does the same thing .

Not sure how far this place is from you.

Last night I braised some pork shoulder slices in tomato sauce and served them with sautéed polenta and garlic bread.

Pork shoulder slices... is that what might be called pork steaks, or do you mean something thinner, GG?
