Zug Food

Yes, when Kim isn’t here preparing dinner I tend to go a little … well … simple. Thankfully, Swiss food tends to be extremely simple. Meat, potatoes, gravy, fruit and veggies seem to be the main ingredients.

Last night I decided to stop eating cereal and made Pouletgeschnetzeltes. I grilled some chicken, fried some Rösti (potato hashbrowns, essentially), and mixed some mushroom gravy with the chicken. I just tried to make it look like the meal on the Rösti package.

It’s cherry season in Zug, so this morning I went down to the Chriesimärt in old town to pick up some fresh cherries. I was surprised by the size and varieties, and settled on a small box for 6 CHF. The lady at the booth also described a Kirsch Likor made locally (in Baar) that was sweet and could be sipped (the kind of drink that appeals to a sweet tooth as big as mine).

Then, off to Migros for the staples (and restocking Frey chocolate so I can throw a little in my lunch each day).

    🙂 “The baby wants some kirsch likor, too!” …

    in Jamaica James tried some rum cream and it smelled SO delicious so we bought some at the airport and as I was telling the checkout lady I would wait until Christmas to try it (maybe I was feeling a little guilty being visibly pregnant and holding two liter bottles…) she told me that if I wanted some I should have a little or the baby would be born with a birthmark shaped like what I was craving! 🙂 LOL

    I haven’t tried any yet…

    Your whole meal looks fantastic – thanks for sharing the simple joys!
