Obviously, it would be fantastic to have a year-round, world-famous farmer's market available (like, say, Seattle?), but we make do with what we've got.
For dinner (last night), Kaitlin put her own spin on a recipe from Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I know what you're thinking: why would she put a spin on something from one of the queens of cooking?! Simply put, we were out of stuff. A few essential ingredients were missing, and it was already late; my wife isn't going to let a thing like that slow her roll. It was a simple baked chicken with sauce, and it was delicious.
Preheat the oven to 350, and prepare the sauce while waiting. To do so, mix up 1 1/2 tbsp of dijon mustard, 1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp butter, a chopped garlic clove, and three chopped shallots. Once this is done, trim the fat from the chicken, grease a 9x13 pan, and drop them in. Salt and pepper to your liking, then douse your poultry in the sauce and bake to completion.
