It seems Tom and I have a slightly different approach to sussing out the important flavors in a recipe…
Me: What do you want to eat this week?
Tom: Oh, I don’t know…um….what about that stew?
Me: What stew?
Tom: It has spinach* in it?
Me: You mean the one with red wine?
Guess what I get to drink during dinner prep!
*It’s not spinach, it’s arugula. And it’s not arugula in the original recipe, it’s kale. Which is what I’m using tonight as it is not exactly arugula season. But I’m still drinking the wine. And wondering how Tom managed to evolve from someone with a chest freezer full of perogies and fish sticks to someone suggesting spinach stew.
