Onto the month of December. We took our annual trip to Colmar and Eguisheim ( in the Alsace) for a Christmas lift, Alsacien food and wine. Here are some photos from Colmar and the Christmas market

I took a few photos in the morning before we left. Eguisheim is a beautiful village, a place to visit.
|Storks nest in the Alsace for the summer. Baskets are placed|
on high places to attract the storks. One nest not planned
on top of the church

|Not much snow, I do not think there was much skiing in December!|
Recipe of the Month
This is a recipe I found in english and the site has photos.
if done right, the juice should be absorbed. It is a stew, of course made with Alsacien wine. Sometimes plain food is the best food.
I have posted other recipes from Alsace.(use search)
