Oooh, those mushrooms, Cara, guys!

Spaghetti with roasted home grown cherry tomatoes and hot Italian sausage, debating whether to add some chopped clams.

I never ate the fried chicken again last night. It has been soaking in milk for two days. Definitely tonight with some coleslaw and some kind of potato.

surprisingly easy... just cut dry bread into cubes and soak with warm milk.
Cut one onion and a garlic clove in small cubes and brown in the pan.. add a bit of parsley or chives
Add to the soaked bread, add two or three eggs (depends on the amount of bread)
If the "dough" is too juicy add breadcrumbs until it's smooth.

Bring salted water to simmer, form Knoedel and put it in the simmering water for about 20-25min.
It seems to be it's no problem to leave them in the water for a longer time

I took a break from work and threw together a pan of lasagna from stuff we had in the pantry. I also had four leftover turkey Italian sausages in the fridge. They weren't all that great by themselves, so I un-cased them and added the crumbled sausage to the sauce for the lasagna.

That looks great! My grandmother used to make those for us when we were kids. She just called them "bread dumplings". I never knew what the German name was until now.
