Remember how at the beginning of the school year you had to write essays about what you did on your summer vacation? My family was never much of a vacationing/travel type, so I always felt lame trying to come up with something exciting to say about how I spent my summer. Oh how times have changed. Now when I have time off, I love nothing more than to stay put and relax. This past weekend, I took a much needed, long overdue mini staycation (Friday through Monday) and reveled in the mundane, the everyday. Of course you know that means a lot of time spent in the kitchen. These are all things I made this weekend:
All of these recipes are from Joe Yonan’s Serve Yourself Night: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One. Whether or not you live alone, this is a book I highly recommend. A lot of really interesting flavors and recipes and in perfect portions for the solo cook like me. I’m planning on trying out several more recipes from this book soon.
