Tonight we are eating vaguely Indian chicken. I cooked chicken on a bed of shredded onions and cut up dates. We had the dates left over from Passover's Charoset. I topped the chicken with lots of curry powder.
I added some cider vinegar to the pan because it tasted a bit bland. after the chicken was cooked I pulled the chicken out of the pan and set it aside. Then I poured off all of the chicken juices. I put the chicken juice into the fridge and then tossed the fat after it had risen to the top of the container. I don’t cook with chicken fat. I know it’s thrifty and yummy, but I’m just not old world enough to do that.
I then reduced the chicken juice along with the wine that was left over from last Friday night, a nice Italian red.
I made spicy stewed eggplant.
a bean salad,
and taboule. I also made meringues and cooked spiced pears and figs in a custard.
