Readers, you amaze me. When I asked on Twitter over the weekend what you cooked in the storm, the array of dishes sounded tempting, warming, nourishing — and only a little fattening. Alas, all that shoveling does burn calories and work up a fierce hunger.
In my kitchen, there was Turkish red lentil soup, chicken soup, roast chicken on a bed of root vegetables, and oven fries. Ingredients for lemon cake and hummus are still sitting on the counter. A neighbor who was expecting guests found herself with a pot of Julia Child’s boeuf bourguignon and steamed potatoes, so invited us and other neighbors. I brought Maine shrimp for a first course, and some chocolate brownie cookies from my freezer. Another guest brought chocolate chip cookies.
