My sister and her fiancé are visiting this weekend, and we’re having a picnic at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, so I picked up some extra things today for avocado sandwiches. I’m glad I went shopping early, ‘cause the avocados are hard as rocks and will need a couple days to ripen on the windowsill.
The brown sugar, almonds, and honey are for homemade granola balls. Yes, BALLS. If you’re tiresome and ordinary, you can make granola BARS in a pan, but.
And the grand ingredient of the week is a whole chicken, which is simmering on the stove as I write this, getting ready to become a tremendous amount of chicken noodle soup and gourmet chicken salad. Recipes will follow, don’t worry.
