Tonight, I'm making beef stew, something we like and I can make practically in my sleep, and I'm experimenting with a hamin for lunch. But the recipe I have is bland and it calls for a cooking technique I don't want to use. And it uses whole eggs but I forgot to buy eggs. So, I'm adapting. About the only things I'm keeping is the chicken, the spice and the rice. Which are the basics, after all.
And I bought my T'giving turkey. Fifteen pounds to feed seven people. Should be enough. This way, I have it available to me, and my biggest worry is now over.
