Working my way through.
Not long before we left Oakland, I picked up Joyce Goldstein's Complete Mediterranean The Beautiful Cookbook (softcover) at the Richmond Costco, telling Matt he needed to have it. Gorgeous book, enormous book. So big, we have to slide it into the bookshelf sideways.
It was just a few months between purchase and the big move to Tennessee, so the big, beautiful book was boxed up, driven cross-country, and stored in a small warehouse for a long time.
We finally liberated it, along with many others. And the big, beautiful book? Sat on a shelf. The top shelf. The one I can't reach...
Last week, I asked Matt to grab the big, beautiful book, so we could schedule some dishes.
We're starting small, and no more solid-week-from-the-same-cookbook (Nigel Slater cured me of that, thank you) jags.
Saturday night, Matt (what a sweetie) made Angry Potatoes and Fried Holoumi.
The potatoes were very spicy, with that cooked through but still firm texture I like.
The cheese was wonderful...holoumi is salty, but the light batter was tasty.
I have no idea what we're going to make next...we're playing it by ear.
