Snowy Saturday Cooking
Today we were supposed to have blizzard-like conditions, or at least a lot of snow, so I--like everyone else around here--went to the store to stock up on bread and milk. Though in my case it was organic buttermilk, which I plan to use for cinnamon doughnut muffins, and tortillas. The chicken was turned into braised chicken with apples and sage, using a recipe from Gourmet magazine. The mushroom risotto featured dried shiitakes (all the loose ones at WF looked slimy that day), a little Marsala, and pearl/Israeli couscous, which is bigger than regular couscous and adds great texture. The snow finally started this afternoon, and I'm not sure when it's going to end, but I've been happy to sit on my sofa, watch movies, and eat yummy, warming winter food.
