tonight’s dinner to celebrate my friend moving into her new apartment :
iraqi yellow spice-rubbed chicken : Saveur Magazine (http://goo.gl/2wUoi)
- unless you cook with exotic spices a lot, odds are you won’t have most of the 14 spices that go into this dish (rose hips, fenugreek, sumac, cardamom pods) but the smell is mind blowing.
confetti corn : Ina Garten (http://goo.gl/GDj1Qf)
-corn is $0.20/ear this week…totally not middle eastern but who cares.
flatbread & wine
frozen lemon gingersnap pie : Gourmet Magazine (http://goo.gl/Ks0ctb)
-this is without a doubt one of the best tasting desserts I have ever made, though I’m deconstructing it this time…serving it as a lemon ice cream with a gingersnap crumble. or you could just make the ice cream by itself…it is the best lemon ice cream i’ve ever had.
