This year I've decided to tackle some of those things.
March's 'Food and Wine' issue arrived today. I decided to go through and earmark articles and recipes that interest me. That is nothing new--I always do that. But I also decided to pick at least one recipe to make this month.
The winner: Umbrian Lentil Stew with Olive-Oil-Fried Eggs. Three things sold me on this one.
- I think I have some lentils in my pantry that I need to use.
- If there are fried eggs involved, it can't be bad. In fact, it must be good. If they're fried in olive oil, I'm in love.
- Wilted arugula, which I call rocket, is delicious, qualifies as a leafy green (I try to listen to my mother when I'm feeding the family), and is a generally bright and happy addition to dinner.
