Because of the meal last night, we made it simple tonight.
I finally got fresh ginger and cardamom! I made chai lattes!
3 coins of smashed ginger
8 black tea bags
1 tsp orange zest
1 cinnamon stick (broken)
pinch of anise seeds (or one star)
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1/2 tsp mace
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
7 (slightly opened) green cardamom pods
10 whole cloves
a couple of shakes of black pepper
2/3 cup brown sugar
Throw everything in a french press.
Boil 4 1/2 cups of water.
Let seep in the press for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with 1 part concentrate and 1 part milk.
Time for dinner!
[[Crepes with apple, bacon, and brie]]
• 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
• 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
• 4 crepes
• 8 ounces brie cheese, sliced
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup
• 2 strips bacon, cooked
Saute the apples in the olive oil.
Lay the crepes on a cutting board. Top each with one-quarter each of the grilled apple, brie, and a slice of bacon.
Fold in half.
Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Working in batches, cook the crepes until golden brown and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes per side.
Drizzle with maple syrup.
Happy Thanksgiving from Switzerland, everyone! :D
