One Handed Chef

It has been three weeks since I have cooked anything. I'm a chef-a holic.

No, actually I am recovering from carpal tunnel surgery which has meant no cooking, typing in very small doses and certainly no heavy lifting. This week (week 3) I am starting to test things a little. I peeled a carrot and was so proud. I cut an onion yesterday and thought that was great. I made cupcakes with the help of my food processor today too. Woo hoo! Yeah, not the same.

How have I survived you ask? My husband has stepped up and has helped me (well actually I merely told him what to do and he did all the work) make some great dinners. We have had tuna with a cranberry pink grapefruit conserve, fennel and carrot confit, a minted vinaigrette over snap peas, empandas filled with soy crumble picadillo (raisins, cinnamon, olives and onions), and cauliflower tahini salad with lentils and dates. We went out for Indian, had procini chestnut soup from the freezer and a salmon with a thyme lemon rub (not a favorite). I did roast a few Brussels sprouts - love them. And a nice salad with a pink grapefruit, champagne vinegar and shallot dressing. 

Other than that - not much. I do promise to expand my views, and at least talk food if I can't truly make the food. I am looking into exotic spices and how to use them. Cupboard staples that are often overlooked. And looking forward to working with a fellow chef in his Caja Chine this summer.....stay tuned. So much more to come!  In the meantime - I am teaching a hands-on (students that is) African cooking class this week at the Dover-Sherborn Adult Ed (MA) and really looking forward to it.

What's on your mind? Looking forward t spring produce or thinking towards summer? Have celebrations for anniversaries, birthdays and babys? I can help with ideas, actually cooking in the Boston area and or writing about such things if it of interest to you, my readers. Just ask! I appreciate your continued readership and hope to keep you entertained in the years to come.
