Bread and Soup Note:
Still More Savory
29 March 2018

¶ Last night, I reprised the menu that I tried earlier this month, and even without the angel-food cake, it was a very good dinner.

  • Celery Soup
  • Bacon & Stilton rolls
  • Fried Chicken

As planned, I cut back on the bacon and stilton in the rolls, and this made them more manageable and a great deal less oily. The chicken, for whatever reason, came out better, and made less of a mess in the cooking, too. I got to work at about 4:15 in the afternoon, because, once again, Kathleen thought she might be late. (Once again, she wasn’t.) We sat down at about eight. Although I had been working steadily for nearly four hours, I was relaxed and not tired; I even managed the dishwasher well. 

For dessert, we had a key-lime meringue pie from Agata & Valentina. It was quite good — not too sweet.

Next time, I am going to add a small “house salad.” There was a recipe for such a thing in a recent New York Times Magazine, but I have to hunt it down and give it a try.
