Week in Food: Past, Present, Future
Last week I made and ate:
Perfect fish tacos - The name sets it up for failure, and these were very good, but not as perfect to me as GP’s fish tacos. You can’t be perfect if your batter lacks beer. End of sentence. They were extremely crispy (I’m guessing thanks to the rice flour). I will be making that slaw for ever and ever though. That shit was the business.
One-pot french onion pasta - I wanted this to be more flavorful than it was. I used veal stock in place of chicken, and still pretty bland. Don’t worry I ate the entire thing, but it’s what I think I’d crave after a bad flu or something.
Budget Bytes’ stromboli - Still practically perfect in every way. Use HSE’s dough (found in recipe below) and mix the italian seasoning into the dough instead of sprinkling on top.
Sweet corn, zucchini, and fresh mozzarella pizza - Good GOD this was delicious. I thought so even having forgotten the garlic (I know, blinded by hunger, etc, etc). Two ears of corn was…a lot of corn. I love corn, but sliding a pizza with that many kernels from peel to oven was stressful and sort of catastrophic. Use her dough recipe, it’s the only one I ever do. Also, TJ’s makes a hell of a bottled balsamic glaze so I recommend you go find some stat.
