THOUGHTS ON THIS PAST WEEK’S FOOD:
I’m helping my friend for city council, so things have been very hectic at our house. My husband had a great thing happen at work, so Wednesday was a celebratory meal. Surf and turf is usually not in our usual dinner repertoire.
Shakshuka is one of my favorite catch-all meals. It’s normally based on tomatoes, but I needed to use up greens and some green bell peppers. I sauteed peppers and onions. I had some harissa, so a spoonful of that went in. Then I added diced chard stems. I added a little water, and braised everything for a few minutes. Then all the chopped up greens went in along with some cilantro. Then I cracked open some eggs, added them to the pan, covered it and cooked them for 6 minutes. I like runny eggs, so cook them longer if you don’t.
I could eat my weight in baba ganoush. I’d rather have that then hummus. Madeline feels the same way, so it disappeared very quickly.
I hope you all had another great week filled with great food!
