SpecialK travels for work, sometimes frequently.
i don’t tend to cook a lot when he travels, so meals often look like this:
I had invited a friend to join me for dinner one night while alone. She cancelled, which left me with a piece of chicken defrosting in the fridge.
i invited her again a few days later. In a way, I think I knew she would cancel again. I brined the chicken, but didn’t marinate it. I made the croutons for our chicken Caesar salad, but I didn’t wash the salad. Dessert had not been made.
She did cancel again, leaving me with a piece of chicken to cook. I learned I love it when coated in flour, so I cut the chicken up, tossed it in a 1/4 cup of flour, and pan fried it. I then added some chicken stock, and the juice and zest of lemon. Salt and pepper to season it, and I was rather impressed.
i ate 1/2 of it last night, and the rest of it earlier today. SpecialK will return later tonight, and I will make soup tomorrow.
What do you make to eat in bone chilling weather?
