Ah the blizzard of 2010 in Brooklyn. No way to get around without slipping on ice, no snow plows to be seen, stranded airplanes sitting on the tarmac, and enough general chaos to make you want to stay inside until the snow melts. I myself decided to stay in and improvise some eats last night. Here was my stay at home supper: portabello ravioli with red peppers, button mushrooms, porcini mushrooms, white wine, garlic, cracked black pepper, and some chicken broth simmered and thickened with a little bit of flour.
And of course, my favorite! Fennel and pork sausage and broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe is a simple to prepare green that packs amazing flavor. Just steam it with some olive oil, water, garlic, salt, pepper and maybe some red pepper flakes. I like my broccoli rabe the exact opposite of al dente… I want to be able to smear it on my crusty Italian bread like butter.
Did you make any homemade eats during the blizzard? Feel free to email me some pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org
