The dinners in the monastery were quite simple, though they tasted heavenly :-) Most of the days during my week there we ate vegetarian food only, but the last day was a special feast day, and the food was thereafter - delicious violet potatoes, lamb and vegetables, served with a sweet Bourgogne, eaten while learning about old saints from Father Anthony.
In my "House in the Woods" I will tomorrow tell my special story about my astonishment when being served these violet potatoes. I couldn't understand how they got their colour, but now I have learned that such violet potatoes really excist....so my inkbottle has nothing to fear.
Sorry, I don't have a recipe on how to make this meal, so let the photos speak to you, use your imagination, and just enjoy! And find a book about the saints and read about their exciting lives.
