Quick Dinner Dispatch

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m off to Seattle this morning but felt an overwhelming urge to download some random recent dinner discoveries for you as I sit at Gate 1 in JFK’s Terminal 7. (Don’t you hate it when that happens?) For starters: Due to popular demand, I created a highlight for the mushrrom-farro recipe I posted on instagram stories last week. (Note to self: Never underestimate the power of an easy weeknight recipe.) Many of you suggested adding a fried egg on top, to which I say, hells yeah.

(If you head to my instagram profile, you’ll see it right there on the top left.)

Next: My learning curve on tofu has been steep as I plow through the research and development stage of The Weekday Vegetarians. I mean, I’ve always made it, but I have definitely not mastered it, especially the kind of mastering that translates to tofu that my children actually enjoy eating. (Last week, Abby pointed to a photo of a triple-fried tofu baton on a Chinese take-out menu and said, “I’d eat that tofu.”) Anyway, I was delighted to discover an entire Bon Appetit podcast devoted to the topic, so give it a listen if you’re looking for some tips like me. (It’s the second half of Episode 255.) ALSO: I’ve gotten into to picking up the pre-baked tofu (Wildwood brand is my favorite so far) because they’re so easy to fry up for a quick lunch…

…Am I at risk for over-bowling you guys? This was last Friday’s lunch: brown the pre-baked tofu (cubed) in olive oil and a dash of sesame oil; throw in chopped onion, garlic, and chili flakes, then a mountain of whatever greens you have (kale, spinach, chard, frozen beans, etc), drizzle in soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame seeds. Done. It’s 7:30 am as I write this, and thinking of how good it would be tossed with soba noodles for dinner.

Lastly, over at Cup of Jo, I suggested an old favorite Baked Beans recipe for Super Bowl Sunday, but it reminded me that it’s a perfect meal for any Sunday. And I won’t be offended if you throw some franks in there. (Photo courtesy of the gifted and talented Yossy Arefi.)

I’m only in Seattle for a few days, and won’t have a ton of time to explore, but hit me up with suggestions if you have them. I’ll be staying in Ballard. (Like last time!)

P.S. I plan to read this for the entire flight when I’m not playing Ruzzle. You’ll be hearing a lot more about it, I promise.
