Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Tonight we had a fine dinner. Moroccan chicken (slow cooker), avocados, brown rice, crudites, a smidgeon of pecan pie.
Crudites: I cooked broccoli spears in the wave for two minutes then dropped them into a bowl of cold tap water. Took them out after a while, let them drain. It improved them, though I don't think anything will ever make broccoli actually good. Added radishes for contrast.
Nowadays when I cook rice or pasta, I cook a big batch and freeze the extra in Ziploc bags. I flatten the food inside the bag and press channels into it with the side of my hand, to make serving-size portions, easy to take out and thaw. Saves steps and dishwashing. (Maybe I posted this already.)
