On my last day in Germany, I decided to stay in and just relax. All the site seeing and hoofing around had bogged me down. Besides, I was also running out of money. The dollar to euro conversion rate wasn't very favorable. So on this day, I decided to go to the local supermarket and check it out. What I found were fresh ingredients and good selection. So I decided to make some food for myself and of course some leftover for Mr. Haribo Mule. It was kind of like a thank you for housing me and being the best host EVER!
After the took a full trip around the market, I went back to the sections that I peaked my interest. Collective in my mind, I was going to make a pasta dish. First I saw these beautiful mushrooms on sale. I got chanterelles and crimini mushrooms. Then I needed a little protein so bacon was in order. Lastly, I bought a few onions for good measure. Below are the ingredients are cleaned, chopped, and prepped for cooking.
I also bought a bag of tubular pasta, a can of crushed tomatoes, and some boursin cheese. In my head, these ingredients would work well. Many times, I just picture things in my head and I come up with a recipe that way.
