Thanks to the unrelenting (!), ever-changing Bay Area weather (hey! we all need to find something to complain about), I was out of commission for most of last week, and unable to do the things I had set out to do – at work, at home and of course, in the kitchen. Since the weather improved a bit on Sunday, and thanks to the husband, I had my meal prep for the week (detailed post on that coming soon!) in the bag, I actually had the time, energy and freedom to make something new. Also, ingredients. And writing this up while holding my breath watching Beyonce do this at the Grammys was a nice end to a week-long illness.
Sometimes you need to put together a meal that scores on all accounts:
- Relatively healthy but not dull
- A li’l indulgent but not over the top
- Easily adaptable with ingredients available on hand
- Doesn’t require dirtying all the pots/pans you own
