It’s getting chilly here, which always makes me want to retreat to the kitchen. Here’s what I snapped with my phone this week on the food front.
Started off with this arriving on my doorstep: Volume 2 of the Food 52 Cookbook featuring my friend Humaira and my Afghan dumpling recipe: tender scallion dumplings topped with ground lamb and yogurt sauce.
A big bowl of leafy greens were prescribed to go along with that pizza, of course.
And one abysmal failure in the form of cranberry apple steel cut oatmeal done overnight in the slow cooker. I thought I was onto some thing BIG, but by morning a dark crust formed on the periphery that took three days to scrape off.
But who could stay down for long with Good Samaritans in the world taping quarters and notes to parking meters? That’s some kind of sweet holiday spirit.
