Starting ever so delightfully soon, we are hosting two beloved visitors for ten days. One of them eats a lot more and a lot differently than we do on Cake and Edith Avenue. So I have a plan, and I'm posting it here in case you need a plan too because maybe you also have a dad or several teenage sons to feed. I'll let you know how it goes.
Skillet Chicken Pot Pie* (similar in method to Skillet Lasagna)
Vegetarian tacos with Smitten Kitchen's black beans, queso fresco, and magic green sauce or roasted tomatillo dressing
Sweet and spicy coleslaw
Saveur's pickled red onions
Damn good chili plus all the fixins (e.g. "3 boxes of Saltines" for Eater alone)
Root veggie coleslaw
Peter Reinhart's cornbread (i.e. the only cornbread we will ever eat in our home)
Day 4 might be leftovers and/or take-out plus Halloween candy. Day 5 involves a dinner party elsewhere (Alleluia!). And then we're halfway there.
*You need a membership for access to that recipe. It's worth it. ATK is the best.
