What do you do when you’re craving an everything bagel, but don’t have the patience to make bagels or want to leave the house? I don’t know what you do, but I make biscuits.
This is the first meal I had with my in-laws. I met them over a long weekend, several years ago- my partner and I had been dating for a month, and his family came up for a visit.
I miss Chinese restaurants. Not in the “I moved somewhere where I can’t find a restaurant I like” or “my favourite place closed down” sort of way. I grew up frequenting Chinese restaurants of various types but developed a soy allergy in adulthood, and my tour of favourite spots came to a bitter end after my refusal to give up soy sauce landed me in the hospital. Now, any time I want Chinese food (or something resembling it), I generally make it myself and as a result have a small repertoire of dishes that satisfy those cravings.
I think I’m getting old. And one of the biggest reasons I think that is that I’m enjoying more and more bitter foods. One of those foods is rapini (also called broccoli rabe) and it’s a regular weeknight meal in our household.
