It’s the final writing group meeting of the semester this week…. and I’ve decided on the menu.
City chicken (if you don’t know what this is, it’s cubed pork/veal on a skewer that is then breaded, fried, and baked). It was quite possibly my absolute favorite thing as a child. I mean, what’s not to love? Fried pork and veal on a STICK! I’ve done some research and apparently this dish is a geographic invention of the rust belt from the Great Depression when chicken was expensive.
Cabbage and beet salad with a lemon vinaigrette, which is actually a Lebanese recipe, but is cole-slaw-like and yet I like it better than regular cole slaw.
Home-made cornbread (because I’ve been jonesing for cornbread).
I wish that I could make and consume all of this food right this minute. However, I must go for a walk (in order to try to compensate for the fried meat on a stick I’ll be eating this week) and then get to campus where I have an afternoon of meetings waiting for me.
