pot au feu

It's snowing and getting colder tonight. So that I cooked pot au feu. I haven't eaten pot au feu in France and This one is just simmered with pork, carrot, onion, white turnip, and sausage. I added one garlic clove, black pepper, clove and etc.
the white turnip are added after simmered hours, and sausage added before 5mins.

I've got a feeling that I wanna drink Alsace wine, so that I got a Riesling.
To tell the truth, I wanna get some Alsace wine, but It's snowing and colder,
I get it in my neighborhood. That wasn't bat at all. sweetness, acidty, and smelling.
It got together with food.

The green leaves were a Japanese salad, "Shungiku"(garland chrysanthemum).
It's made in this season. Usually, It's eaten by boiling, but I liked eat them in fresh when they are young.

trois c

I've puffed a cigar with chocolate and coffee tonight.
I've heard of that some peoples enjoy this three combination in Europe.
instead of this combination, cognac, cheese, champagne, and ...
There must be the other combination. It would be fun. Tonight chocolate is flavored with whiskey. Royce is a chocolate maker in Hokkaido.

Hoyo petit robusto

I've puffed this mini cigar several times, and I knew that I liked this one. It smelt like wood and spices(cinnamon? or something). It's easy to puff. The ash was more fragile than usual.

Japanese homemade foods

This is the foods I've cooked Yesterday.
The left pic was Atsuage(fried Tofu), The middle pic was Arani(a kind of simmered dish), and the right pic was grilled giant eggplant.
Arani was little light taste, I should've added more soy sauce.
