Today I came across a photography and styling challenge over at Simone’s blog Junglefrog Cooking and decided to take part. The challenge for the month October is about a pumpkin orange fall setting including of course homemade food.
Luckily pumpkins could be substituted by carrots ( or any other orange food) so it fitted in today’s meal schedule. I cooked a Carrot Potatoes Hotpot with cooked sausage ( Kochwurst in German, hope the translation makes sense to you?).
At least I had some decorative pumpkins and leftover fabric leafs from yesterdays DIY around that jumped in to improve the fall setting mood.
It’s fairly easy to cook and the perfect fall meal when it get’s cold outside.
The hubs felt cold all day at work and was very pleased that his little domestic goddess had a steamy meal ready for him…*cough cough* after taking a few pictures of it of course.
This is what you need for 2-3 big portions:
- about 250g carrots
- 3-4 big potatoes
- 3 cooked sausages
- cooking pot half full with water with about 1 1/2 tsp instant broth ( I know ‘real’ broth is much better, but I took what was in my pantry)
- pinch of salt and pepper
This was one of the go tos when my mom had no clue what to cook. Funnily it was sometimes just named potato stew or carrot hotpot even if it was the same all the time. Great childhood memories and it feels like home when I do this dish.
So happy cooking ladies and have a great week.
