Good morning. I labored for a though at a cafe that experienced a smaller commissary attached to it: boxed foods and salads and soups for the kind of folks who enjoy great foods but have no time to make it, or have the time but no drive to use it cooking. It was a kind of an city Loaves & Fishes, where the much more we charged for chicken salad, the additional of it we sold.
I still make that hen salad, from a recipe that was in no way penned down but intently resembles Julia Moskin’s best rooster salad (previously mentioned). It is developed on a foundation of carefully poached chicken. Some days I incorporate halved grapes and toasted walnuts, and other moments slivered apples and almonds. On event, I insert curry powder to the mayonnaise.
Whichever, I like to make the salad in the morning, permitting the flavors to develop around the class of the working day in the refrigerator, and then to provide it in cups of bibb lettuce for evening meal immediately after a spherical of martinis and just before a chapter or two of “The Resort New Hampshire,” no lie. It can make for a deeply gratifying Sunday in the kitchen, at the table and on the couch.
On Monday, how about this sweet corn and scallop pasta, with a buttery, lemony sauce that tastes of the season? (Preferences of the season in the Northeastern United States, at any rate. If you’re reading through this in Christchurch or Sydney, spoon lamb may perhaps be much more on the nose.)
For Wednesday, if you’re not way too wiped out from cooking nonstop, get a seem at these chicken-zucchini meatballs with feta, or this crispy tofu with cashews and blistered snap peas. No? Takeout’s wonderful. I do not judge you.
For Thursday, although, I’m pondering you might make roasted fish with ginger, scallions and soy.
