You might have noticed that things have been a little slow around these parts lately. Due to a broken arm (read: unfortunate one-handed typing situation) Meal Ticket is going to be taking a bit of a break. Of course, that doesn't mean that we're not eating. Here's what the weekend looked like.
Not really feeling like eating or drinking much of anything I ended up making a chocolate stout-chocolate chocolate chip milkshake. That counts as dinner, right?—CR
While C was chaperoning a school dance, I slipped into the bar at Fond on Friday night for a few bites from the new fall menu. Lee Styer absolutely killed it with petals of arctic char over preserved lemon yogurt, mushroom risotto--his risottos are always great--scattered with crushed hazelnuts, pork belly rillettes with pickled apples and the best foie prep I've had in recent memory: molasses cream cheese and a ring of caramelized Asian pear. Unreal. Eat there immediately!—AE
Saturday afternoon I had lunch at Parc, eggs en cocotte with trout roe and dill plus a of each slice in the wonderful bead basket. After a brisk walk home from Center City I spent the evening sharing a few bottles of Muscadet with friends along with a spread of snacks that included slices of honeycrisp apples, clothbound cheddar and rounds of salami.—CR
Saturday was spent writing, writing, writing, then running errands, then grabbing Chik-Fil-A with lots of Polynesian Sauce for dinner. Sorry not sorry.—AE
After a quick perusal of the contents of the fridge Sunday dinner ended up being a simple but totally perfect dish of potatoes and onions tossed with lemon and parsley and roasted with a few links of Italian sausage. I needed some help peeling the potatoes but all in all I think I'm getting the hang of this one handed cooking thing.—CR
On Sunday I worked all day, but managed to throw a quick dinner together. Simmered chicken, romanesco and fingerlings in a jar of Maya Kaimal Madras curry. Fast, and pretty tasty.—AE
