Also from March 2007...

Hello again, Hungry Kiddies--

What better plan to welcome in early Spring (!?!?) and break in the new apartment than Chicken Fried Steak and Red Velvet Cake? None that I know of. I am thinking all soul food-- pickled shrimp, Chicken fried steak, grits, cream gravy, collards... you get the picture. Don't worry-- there will be other veggies too. I have not made CFS since the fateful "Election Day Cafe" so it is time to brush off and get back on that horse, damnit!

A menu from March 2007

Spring lamb, probably simmered with pomegranate molasses and saffron, romaine lettuce with peas, zucchini and mint braise, artichokes, fiddleheads and/or ramps if I can find them, some wild mushrooms. Passionfruit Pavlovas for dessert. Think a spring forest foraged dinner, if one had to do such things these days.
