Practically Summer Outside

Compared to the last few days the 34 degree temperature outside is downright balmy. However, not quite balmy enough for me to forsake my warm kitchen. I’m cooking up a storm today; here’s the full list:

- Date muffins with a crunchy, nutty topping
- Pan-fried deviled eggs… so delicious, and I’ve never even liked deviled eggs. The recipe is from The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Supper.
- Polenta cakes (made with last night's leftovers)
- Chicken stock
- Pizza with homemade dough (plus enough dough to put in the freezer for another pizza next weekend)
- Spicy roasted broccoli
- Fried mozzarella balls, courtesy of Gourmet magazine. Recipe here. This recipe has gotten mixed reviews on the Gourmet/Epicurious website, so I’m curious to see how it turns out. But, the photo (click on the link above) just looks heavenly…molten mozzarella oozing out of a crispy, golden coating. I have high hopes.

I will post a photo or two once everything is prepared.

Yes, this is a lot of food. But unless Rosa suddenly develops an enormous appetite, not all of it will be consumed today. We’ll have enough muffins for breakfast for a couple of days. The chicken stock is for tomorrow night’s risotto, and there will be leftover pizza and broccoli for tomorrow’s lunch.

It’s a win-win-win. Time spent puttering around a warm kitchen, ready-made meals for tomorrow and beyond, and, most importantly to me, delicious food to brighten up a gray day.

Jenn-
Can you post or send recipe for the spicy broccoli??? It sounds realy good and our veggies are always bland!! I also want to try the mozzarella balls but I worry if your fall apart that mine would be a disaster!!!

Jenna Helwig said...

Hi Alli - I am going to make the broccoli again tomorrow night and I'll measure my quantities... unlike what I did last time. I'll post it tomorrow night or Tuesday. xoxo

Megan said...

I got them to work! Probably because I was being super cautious based on your advice. I'll post about them soon. Basically I really pressed them into the breadcrumbs... and I let them sit for a little bit before frying them so the egg would dry a little and possibly hold together better...
