Hodgepodge: Chicken, Rapini, Wings
We are getting in lots of strawberries and that makes breakfast easy. They are very good fresh; better than anything we have ever bought at the market.
I am still on the Moroccan theme at least once a week, both from the Weir book as well as Claudia Roden's book: The New Book of Middle Eastern Food. We had a great chicken with olives and served it with Israeli couscous with oyster mushrooms. We tried these big boneless pork chops sauted with peppers and onions, added wine and herbs and finished them in the oven so they were tender on yellow rice.
My husband has been hungry for rapini, also know as broccoli rabe and I finally found it at Whole Foods. Is is so easy to make a great one coarse meal with it. The recipe is out recipe of the week this week.
We are cooking for an outing tomorrow and since we are still trying to use up potatoes, we are going to make that yummy potato salad we had in a previous blog and sticky sesame chicken wings. It solves a couple of problems (freezer and potato excess) and should be great to boot. I'll try to get pictures and post them later.
Have a warm weekend.
