Taking a rest weekend from walking and such. Been feeling a bit under the weather and sore in the ankle. But not too sore for food. It was a day of ups and downs in the meal department. Breakfast featured a special treat: creme fraiche. And the afternoon’s tart experiment was fairly successful. But dinner disappointed – I made potato pancakes with red onion instead of yellow onion and it just wasn’t the same. But what can you do? Have dessert I guess!

Buckwheat crepes with fresh fruit and creme fraiche
The creme fraiche was a real treat, especially with the raspberries (and a bit of raspberry jam).

Leek and Mushroom Tofu Tart
A small taste to sample the tart experiment.
Potato pancakes with white bean croquettes and cabbage salad
Kind of disappointed by this meal. The croquettes were too dry. The potato pancakes were not the same with red onion instead of yellow. But the slaw was delicious, as was the tofu dip (with chives, adapted from Veganomicon‘s horseradish and dill dip) and apple sauce and homemade apple sauce.
Potato pancakes (the yellow onion is important!)
