Because of my crappy ugly pictures I can't show you a picture of my first fall supper. It consisted of a wine-braised wiesswurst (say that three time fast) from Morants, Braised green cabbage, and mashed russets. The wiesswurst was great. It was pale and lean, and had a spongy consistency, but in a pleasant way. Very German. Weisswurst is the traditional sausage of the German second breakfast (Zweites Frühstück), which is eaten before noon along with pretzels, mustard, and wheat beer. How do I know this? Because I have the current Saveur, which is about breakfast and is super fun to read. This was also my first try at my new Fall food philosophy: poverty cuisine. Not because I am actually living in poverty but because food inflation has reached such insane levels that I am going to try to just stick to fun variations on cheap staples like beans, lentils, whole grains, cabbage, potatoes, etc. I can include Morants in there because it's very affordable.
