I invented this recipe today:
I marinated some boneless skinless chicken in sour cream. While it was marinating, I mixed up some fresh garlic with a bag of fresh spinach, sumac, pomegranate molasses, and shredded mozzarella. Then I stuffed the chicken with this mix and baked it. I didn’t add salt because I usually don’t when I use cheese.
I was hoping that the chicken would last us a few days because I baked a whole tray. But it’s almost gone! Poor N had dinner three times because it’s so good.
I’m cursed with the gift of cooking. It’s impossible not to overeat. Klara is refusing to stay for lunch at church. “You cook so much better, mommy. Let’s go home for lunch instead.” I have to beg her not to comment on the food the cook makes at daycare.
My grocery bill is ridiculous because everything I cook has a million ingredients. The chemistry of food is fascinating, by the way. I play out possible recipes in my head like chess players strategize games.
