September 26, 2016

Life is too short to be bored by dinner….

As we near the end of the month, I am finally ready to think about fall. There is something inside me that shifts from craving lobster rolls to looking forward to beef stew.  Perhaps next week I’ll do the Beef Stew with Dijon from the Times or Martha Stewart’s Sicilian Beef Stew with Fennel and Orange (for the slow cooker).
This past week I did a Roast Chicken Provencal which was a wonderful transition dish for the season.  Light, yet rich, and oh so full of flavor.  I’ll reheat this again tonight – yet another case where leftovers are to be treasured.
Friday is Warner’s birthday.  And that calls for beef.  I believe a standing rib – nothing quite so celebratory. With that luscious pan gravy with madeira.  Rich.
And oh yes, the cats want to know why the chicken giblets pack inside a whole chicken no longer seem to have liver.  They’d like to speak to their lawyer about that…..
