I don't know if I can wait until the agreed upon 'mid-May' date. I am enjoying cooking from it already..and I'm excited to post my reviews. Anyone interested in starting it slowly now...and others can jump in as they want to ?
Tonight I made Greek Lemon Soup. Pg. 105 in the New Joy.
It was so simple, so inexpensive...and tasted delicious. I had chicken broth in the freezer, and a bunch of lemons I needed to use up..so it was the perfect choice. It reminded me somewhat of risotto, creamy..like comfort food with elegance. A light soup..good for summer, but also very filling and satisfying too. We all agreed it's a keeper. I served it with a romaine salad with French vinaigrette dressing, and whole wheat garlic toast on the side. After working all day, it was nice to prepare something so nice, that needed so little preparation.
