My head hurts for my adopted city - seeing Boston streets completely deserted while in lock down is extremely unsettling. I do hope the insanity ends very soon for those people in the midst of it - please stay safe, all of you!
So - what do we turn to to comfort ourselves? Food (and drink!). What are you cooking, eating, and drinking?
I feel for all of you in Boston. This has been so difficult to watch and read. I cant wait til they catch the second bastard. I was tempted to much not to have these sammies. I am making cheesesteaks for dinner tonight after reading this post twice in a row. Peppers, onions mushrooms and shaved ribeye. Provolone for me, cheddar for bf. Steak fries in the toaster oven to go with. A1 on the side to dip for me
I'm so sorry, Linda. We are all thinking of you guys. Stay safe!
Tonight I think I'm making Ellie Krieger's chicken satay with peanut sauce, brown rice, and roasted broccoli. I normally work Fridays but have today off, so will have time to do a little cooking. Nothing fancy, but my little kids love it, it's pretty healthy, and I'm happy with anything that has peanut sauce on it :). Camping this weekend, possibly...so probably simple food for that.
I like Ellie's recipes - the chicken satay sounds like a good one. She was the guest chef tonight on Simply Ming, and wish one of the food channels would add her into their line up. I watched her show when she used to have on the Food Network, and miss her tips on how to use healthy ingredients in recipes while still maintaining great flavor.

I have lots of leftover chili. I made it Wednesday, thinking my husband saw going to be snowed in, not taking a trip to another part of the state for a music festival. Wrong. The minute the roads opened, they took off. We had a snow day Wednesday here. It's melting somewhat, but we are expecting another snowstorm in a few days.
I can't even think about dinner right now. I know I will feel better if I get into the kitchen. It's just my mind is in a state of shock. I start trying to make a list and then I am overwhelmed by what is going on.
I am thinking an impromptu potluck might be in order. Friends, food and wine might be just what we all need. A am Thankful I can even entertain that idea unlike my friends in the city.....
