my lunches, alas, have been an entirely different and much more melancholy story. i’ve had good ideas that have been executed poorly, i’m sorry to say. take yesterday’s turkey-stuffed portobello mushrooms. a really good idea, i think, and very easy to prepare, and a great way to use some of those incredible portobellos they are always hawking at the farmers’ market, but the turkey completely dried out in the oven and when i tried to reheat them in the toaster oven yesterday i was treated to a very dry, bricklike mass of what used to be turkey meat (i loved the worcestershire-basted mushroom as a base, though). so yesterday turned into a sort of throwback to my high school days, when passover meant that lunch generally got skipped.
puu's passover challenge, day 3
a tagine! i finally made that lamb recipe i bookmarked in my braising book all those months ago, and spent half of sunday gathering ingredients for, and it was delightful! i was so pleased with the way the flavors combined into something really light, citrusy and special, perfect for an early spring passover dinner.
