What to Cook Ideal Now

Fantastic morning. It is superior summer — seriously large summer time, for some of us — and a day off for quite a few, a chance to prepare dinner and eat outside. Probably pan bagnats to wrap in wax paper and slip into a tote bag with a perspiring bottle of wine, a handful of plastic cups, a knife for a big, chilled watermelon? I could eat that food on a berm beside the freeway, steam billowing out of my vehicle’s radiator, and nevertheless have a smile on my facial area.

Then, for dinner, give Melissa Clark’s most recent a attempt, a sheet-pan rooster with roasted zucchini and basil (earlier mentioned). It’s dim meat rooster — thighs and drumsticks — seasoned with garlic, herbs and purple-pepper flakes, roasted together with chunks of zucchini that soften and caramelize in the oven’s warmth. Torn basil and a squeeze of lemon at the conclude carry vibrant, tangy notes to the dish, which you may serve with rice or crusty bread to soak up the juices. Could you make it in a lined gas grill? I consider so, however you’ll want to be cautious with the heat: Use higher to get the grill seriously scorching in advance of you insert the sheet pan, then dial back again to medium-lower for the roasting.

Or probably shrimp étouffée? A baked artichoke pasta with creamy goat cheese? I could see a rapidly stir-fry of orange beef. Make that with the greatest steak you can obtain, but with considerably less meat for each person than you generally may well, and provide it with greens sautéed with garlic and ginger, around rice. Great food!

While you’re at it, you can have a fantastic dessert afterward — possibly this unbelievably crunchy summer season fruit crumble? Or a berry buckle? (System ahead whilst you are at it. If you make this astounding rooster salad this afternoon, it’ll shell out dividends for lunch this week. It’s a single of individuals salads that enhances right away in the fridge.)

Now, it’s very little to do with fried eggs or steamed dumplings, but I have been experiencing some generate-time podcasting with “The Lazarus Heist,” about a hacking ring, probably North Korean, which approximately stole a billion dollars. It’s from the BBC Globe Company.

Elvis Presley recorded his initially solitary at Sunlight Studio in Memphis on this working day in 1954, “That’s All Appropriate.” It was unveiled on July 19, with “Blue Moon of Kentucky” on the flip aspect.

Oh, boy, is this a high-quality piece of art criticism in The Occasions, from Jason Farago, about the “Cézanne Drawing” clearly show at the Museum of Contemporary Artwork.

Lastly, I’m late to it, but if you have not watched “Inside,” Bo Burnham’s one particular-male display on Netflix, you must do that tonight. Pandemic art! I’ll be back again on Wednesday.
