PROJECT “CLEAN OUT THE PANTRY” is officially underway! That’s right. We are finally, finally, at long last and just in time, moving into our new house. Which is good because I was going to pack up anyway, headed straight for the loony bin. Six months of temporary living among too many moving boxes and too few creature comforts (Sofa? TV? I will buy you soon…and maybe never leave either one of you!) have left this
constantly crabby lady mommy blogger a bit unnerved.
Now the real deal begins. To make life a little easier, it’s my mission to cook down the pantry so we’re not spilling half-open bags of quinoa all over the North Carolina suburbs. Skimming through an otherwise ignored issue of O magazine*, I saw a bunch of recipes from none other than Michael Pollan who was promoting his new book. (You know him because he came up with this: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”) Oprah says this chicken is what the world’s most famous food expert cooks for dinner and I said why not try it for these turkeys?
