Regular readers of the comments section of my blog (that's where some of the best action is, by the way) might recall that my darling husband, who seldom asks for anything, requested Gruenkern for Shabbos lunch. This occurred during the course of a discussion which took place as a result of this post. As you can see, I agreed to make it as long as he did the legwork and bought the ingredients. Well, he came home this evening with the meat in hand, and I figured that I should at least meet him halfway and buy the Gruenkern.
You might say that I took the "long way" to the store. Scraps and I decided that the night was far too beautiful to waste so we walked the span of George Washington Bridge after dark. This is the view from the New Jersey side. Pardon the blur, but on camera settings suitable for night photography, you realize how much the bridge shakes!
More photos taken on previous bridge walks are viewable here, here, here and here... (hmmm.... does something tell you that I think this is a worthwhile excursion?)
Update: The recipe for Gruenkern is now available here.
