RECIPE SCHMECIPE
I made a yummy dinner tonight, if I do say so myself. I don't cook all that much anymore, because the amount of people that I need to feed has drastically reduced itself to...mostly me. Karin is so rarely home and Anders and I tend to just grab something simple for ourselves: soup, a sandwich, hotdogs (in his case).

Some years ago, I got tired of cooking, too, and basically stopped. The kids were old enough to get their own damn dinners for a change and Anders cooks better than I do, and likes doing it, too, so I just...quit. Mostly. I still cooked/cook every now and then but I no longer feel any kind of obligation to see that my family is fed every night. I grocery shop and supply the ingredients, what more can they ask of me? Heh.

Anyway, once in awhile I DO like to throw something together and once in awhile it works. I had to pick up Karin today at the bus stop in the town next over where we do our grocery shopping so I asked Anders if he had any ideas for dinner on my way out the door. He didn't and I didn't really either, but I said I'd see what I could find while I was there. We had several servings worth of leftover rice in the fridge and that was my starting point. I bought chicken (dark meat fillets!) and fresh asparagus and bok choy and a big kohlrabi, and then I threw some grated cheese and a container of herb & garlic creme fraiche into the basket as well.

It turned out to be a delicious casserole, and since I made it up, I am pretty happy about it. Everyone took seconds, always a good sign and I served baby plum tomatoes on the side. Good stuff.

It's fun to follow recipes, but it's also fun to just throw a lot of things you like together and see what happens. Serendipity cuisine!
