mid-week eats…

Today was a mediocre day in regards to the weather… so I opted to cook indoors. On the menu, a hearty salad and chicken francaise with artichokes! The salad was made up of bitter greens, butter lettuce and red leaf lettuce. In addition, some applewood smoked bacon, toasted slivered almonds, black olives, dried cranberries and gorgonzola made their appearance to complete this masterpiece.
As for the chicken francaise, thinly pounded chicken gets lightly floured, dipped in egg and then pan fried. The sauce a lemony fresh butter sauce made in the same pan. So GOOD!!
Tomorrow the area will be flirting with some 80* temps, so might have to pick up some big pieces of meat to grill… we shall see!!

at a low simmer…
