Mimi Thorisson's chicken standby: lightly seared chicken breast, splash of marinara, melting cheese -> oven until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.   Here, with garlicky beet greens.

Husband invoked a corollary of the 90's chardonnay invective:  ABC....ANYTHING BUT CHICKEN.     Sorry, Mimi.    Even you can't revive his saturation with this meat.

Beautiful beet greens but you lost me with the chardonnay invective.  All that comes to mind is Carol Kane in The Dead Don't Die, but that is probably not the reference ("...cheap chardonnay," as Bill Murray adds).

ABC, "anything but chardonnay," became wine snobs chant some years ago, referring to not well made bottles.    These same people slurp white Burgundies.....so go figure.

Oh at least here in the 80's it was the girl at the pick up bar  always "chardonnay". Heavy oak and yucky then. Food follows the path of life travel... we do move on

No photos, but, it being colder than the proverbial well-digger's nether portions, I opted for an Instant Pot of taco soup. Three kinds of canned beans (one must be chili beans, the other two I used black and cannelini as that was what I had on hand); a can of whole kernel corn; two cans of tomatoes and one of tomato sauce; a sauteed diced onion and three or four cloves of minced garlic; and a pound of ground beef browned with copious quantities of Penzey's taco seasoning. A standby from years past. Must be served with Fritos corn chips scattered atop. Had to stop by the grocery on the way home from church for the Fritos and chili beans, but I had the rest on hand.

 

It, and some Glenlivet, served to ward off the chill. It is presently 21. I am contemplating emigrating to Barbados.

early dinner , take out from RiceNoodle

 

my favorite place and favorite order :

 

1142259537_RiceNoodle-1.thumb.jpg.c04b9b581d48e0bd5f5f334bd2868c33.jpg

 

Duck , broad rice noodles , green peppercorn and thai basil   

 

w TodMunPla and two ' dips ' :  standard crushed sweet peanut , and pickled jalapeños  , very hot

 

the TodMunPla   was good , but not as crispy as at the restaurant , of course.

 

next time I might have to eat that there !

 

come to think of it , I could easily manage eating this right now !

 

but @Home   there is Ice Cold Hoponius Union Beer in an Iced Mug

 

( not shown , Im probably already drinking it )

 

this for me is an outstanding dish.

Perfectly simple. Simply good.
