Sometimes, in the course of a meal, along comes a recipe that saves the day.
Such was the case on Sunday, Easter.
And the recipe was the chewy and savory Basil/Rosemary Bread Slabs from my wonderful, favorite, cookbook, Cooking for Isaiah.
The star of the show was to be the delicious and elegant Chicken Broccoli Rolls in Wine Sauce. Yes, "was to be."
As it turns out, the 2nd page of the 3-page recipe was completely gone . . . missing . . . mislaid . . .disappeared. And so I had to draw on my memory of a dish I hadn't made in 10 years.
As is so often the case, recipes trump memory.
I distinctly heard someone on the other side of the table comment that the dish tasted rather like creamed tuna on toast. ::sigh:: And Oldest Son responded, quietly, that maybe Easter dinner wasn't the perfect time to bring out old, unfamiliar recipes.
It is at times like this that I am really, really, really glad that I have a family-pleasing recipe like "Bread Slabs" to save the day. And they're gluten-free to boot!
Gotta love these little darlings!
