The weekend in food, briefly.
I’m not that into chocolate milk, but when it’s made (in Iowa) from whole milk, it’s pretty much like drinking a melted chocolate shake and makes for a great dessert. Thanks for leaving this behind, Mom!
Bachelorette planning brunch at Bryant Lake Bowl after barre class.
Kale, pear, pistachio, and parmesan salad to round out a pizza dinner.
Latte for the road…to work.
Chicken tikka masala. I used a recipe from Food & Wine, and it was good, but it wasn’t our favorite. I’ll continue hunting for something better.
Indian style rice. Sautéed onion and spices added a lot of flavor to plain, brown rice, and it was especially good when eaten with the chicken tikka masala. Next time I’ll double all of the spices to give it even more flavor.
My favorite thing about Indian food is, of course, the naan. When it’s brushed with melted butter, I don’t even need rice or chicken. I’d be happy to eat warm, buttered dough for dinner (or breakfast or lunch). Mark Bittman’s naan recipe is a good one, although I’d like to try cooking it in a cast iron pan instead of on a pizza stone to see if I can get more serious browning.
