I honestly thought today was Mother’s Day in America. No, that’s next Sunday. I don’t go into stores anymore, my husband has taken on that role (quite willingly, to the point of it being a Diktat, because it gives him purpose and we are under pretty extreme lockdown, theoretically, in New York, The World’s Greatest City™). Therefore, I don’t get to see huge banners in somewhere like a CVS saying, “Don’t Forget! Sunday May 10th is MOTHER’S DAY!!!” I just see tons of pushed ads all over the web saying things like “Fifty Perfect Gifts For Mom For Under $50.” Since both our mothers are dead we don’t do much for this holiday but I’m the godfather to three children so I send Mother’s Day greetings to three women.
Anyway, remember how my store-going husband brought home all that ham and I made croques madame? That was the topic of my last O/T. We barely made a dent in the ham so last night I made chicken cordon bleu. It’s easier to make than you would think. I haven’t made it in a while so I consulted this recipe as a refresher:
It’s a little rich but highly recommended if you, like I, have a couple of chicken breasts and some ham and Swiss cheese to use up. One of the many things we’re not experiencing a shortage of is flour, and we’re not being price-gouged on eggs, so this was easily doable for me.
So what is up with you fine folks this Sunday? It’s supposed to be in the high 70s here and people are champing at the bit for
the lockdown PAUSE to loosen up so I expect mask-free crowding as the day wears on. Luckily my role is to walk the dog, and he’s pretty big, and I’m pretty big, so when I’m outside people have to kind of avoid us anyway.
*I hate my phone, it has the worst camera on the market, and besides I don’t plate food, when I serve it’s more like a military mess hall, so I steal commercial photography when I can.
