Snow and Tandori Chicken

Hi Folks-

Well it’s hard to be chipper about 12 to 18 inches of snow…I’m trying. So good things about snow, even in March, it is an addition to the water table…oh crap forget it. I’m done but apparently winter is not.

We don’t get snow days at the market. One of the things about being a market is that you should be open every minute that you say you are going to be and we are very good at that. The best is when the coop closes due to weather or maybe shaw’s and we can really feel like the tough guys, and we get their business :-). So we will be there, it will be warm, it will smell delicious and we will have everything you need for a snow day. See you tomorrow!

Peter and I are plotting an April vacation, a week away from the store with a couple of two day trips elsewhere. This is necessary because, see above, no snow days. We are thinking Portland Maine which we have enjoyed. Always interested in other people’s short trips ideas, so send them along.

I made an easy fun dish last night. We had chicken legs from our freezer and I just had to try something new. This time of year my palate is eagerly awaiting the new season and desperate for new flavors. Mock Tandori Chicken from Mark Bittman fit the bill. Basically a mixture of spices, ginger, garlic and onions sauteed briefly mixed with yogurt and then slathered over chicken that bakes at 300 for 1.5 hours, pull it out of the oven, turn on the broiler and crisp those babies up, very good. Accompanying rice made to Sophia’s specs: White rice, salt and pepper, a little butter, chopped cilantro and a quick hit of lemon juice.

Peter has some great fish coming in including whole Bronzino, 1.5 to 2 pounds each, very fun and hey remember you can always cook them in your fireplace if you lose power (maybe scope out cooking in the fireplace tonight, before you lose power 🙂
