This week, fall has slammed into us full force. The rain came in over the weekend, and then last night, it was stormy enough that we lost power for a few hours in the middle of the night. It’s a good thing, the yard is in desperate need of a soaking, and with that soaking, all we want is comfort food. I’m not alone in this, since everywhere I look lately, all I see are pot pies and soups. I’m not usually one to jump the gun on holidays, but this recipe originated with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers and has migrated to chicken during the rest of the year. Named for an opera star in the early 20th century, so the story goes, you’ll be singing for your supper when this is on the menu. Ladies and gents, I give you, Chicken…..Tetra…..zzini!!

Long before the pink slime debacle, ground beef got a bad wrap. Other than its use for burgers and maybe cottage pie, it ranks pretty low on the beef totem pole. It’s a rarity on upscale restaurant menus, except in comfort food preparations or in ironic, hipstery reduxes of Hamburger Helper. But I’m ok with that, it keeps ground beef sacred in a way (yes, the sacred cow), as home food.
Summer is high time for road construction in the Pacific Northwest. Almost every weekend it seems there’s at least one major closure in Seattle– the bridges, key exits downtown, something. But one of the good things about Labor Day weekend is no planned road closures! And it was a long weekend, so I thought it was about time we got down to the bricks and mortar outpost of Skillet in Capitol Hill for a little brekky.
