strawberry feta salad with honey mustard dressing

guten tag! funny thing.. in the time that it took me to write this i had two people asking for an update. gotta love my family – shout out to mol (sister) and grandma! you guys are stellar.

i’ve been kind of in a stress-rut. work, if you will. i’ve been essentially living off soy sauce drenched and chili flaked popcorn. last week i received my farm fresh to you box packed full with: fennel, kale, romaine, purple carrots, avocados, those lemons that you only get in the suburbs in your friends backyard for lemonade – what are they called, red onions, apples, kiwis, and STRAWBERRIES! 1. this is probably the greatest box i’ve ever received. 2. strawberries. strawberries? strawberries.

luckily, a friend of mine had invited darren and over to her boyfriends for some german food + i was in charge of the salad = strawberry & feta salad with honey mustard dressing

spaetzle cookbook

spaetzle: spet-z-lae with a mushroom gravy is what came out of this bible of german foods with handwritten excerpts.

i was surprised to find that (as long as you have a spaetzle maker – seen above) it is not all that hard to create. if you do have one of these presses, let me know and i will forward you the recipe. it’s some creamy goodness.

dinner

spaetzle and salad. a match made one fine day in san francisco. i would imagine it would be paired nicely with the minty-ginger cocktail seen to the meal’s right. i’m partaking in ‘moderate march’ and am unable to drink for two. more. weeks.
