Ruby Tuesday


Here we go! It's Ruby Tuesday again!

When my nephew Jerome was visiting for the holidays we took him to Zum Stammtisch
touted as having the best German food in the boroughs of New York City.

It has a real German Bavarian flavor and the food was wonderful. Here are a few of the photos I took of RED food:


Jagerschnitzel with red cabbage


Red cabbage


Hot raspberries over vanilla ice cream

Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte
(Black forest cake)

we had a really great time visiting together.

*Next week I thought we might try to photograph RED books or audiobooks in our own collection or in a favorite book store. what do you think? I'll remind you as we get closer to next week...

Don't forget...you know what not to forget...3 things, right?

What wondeful photo...and they make me drool.

I think it's a great idea to photograph red in books we own, etc.

Thom said...

MMMMMMMM now I'm hungry all of a sudden. Looks great. Nice photos my friend :)

Robin said...

Yum, I love red cabbage but I've never been able to successfully pull it off at home. No idea why.

Here's my link since Mr. Linkie seems to be AWOL again:

Racke 'em up boys

Happy RT everyone.

Robin said...

Or perhaps "Rack", which would be a much more reasonable spelling. Sigh...

Felisol said...

Happy New Year, Teach Mary,
I'm gaining weight and increasing appetite just by the look of this inviting German food.
The Germans can food and they serve rich portions like no places else in Europe.
Maybe no fancy French Haute Couisin, but quality through and through, and this lots of it.

Love the picure of the red cabbage. The raspberries look more yummy though! :)

Lois Grebowski said...

WE LOVE GERMAN FOOD! It really sticks to your ribs. There's a great GErman place in Huntsville, AL (@hrs from home) that is **SO** worth the drive...


YUM!

toby said...

Mmmm... those raspberries look especially enticing :)

Leora said...

Red books sounds fun. Gets the creative juices flowing.

And red cabbage gets my mouth watering - looks yummy.

marian said...

Annie said...

I had red cabbage, that I actually LIKED for the first time, a few weeks ago. It was made in the Danish style and was sweet. Yummy.

moorebloglife said...

Sorry Mary I go straight to the desert, I'll have some of the Black forest cake if you please!
Thanks for taking us on another adventure, I am glad you had fun!

Carletta said...

Happy Ruby Tuesday

Ralph said...

I trust that there is spätzle (simmered then sautéed in butter) sitting on the plate covered in gravy. And why not an appetizer of fried camembert? I would accompany this with a fine German pilsner like Dinkel Acker. I haven't been to a German restaurant in a long time, the ruby cabbage making me dream of a Schnitzel...

Anonymous said...

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Now I have the hugest craving for Black Forest cake!!! That might very well be the only German food I've ever tried.

Black Forest cake, yeah!

Red books....hm, I have some of those!

Blessings for a great 2010.
