I had initially picked a different cookbook but then I realized that I’m going to be out of town this weekend which means no cooking, and the nights I will be cooking are protein-only nights so 4 hour “braise forever” recipe aren’t well suited for the nights I’ll be cooking! I changed from my initially selected cookbook to Michael Symon’s Carnivore: 120 Recipes for Meat Lovers. I’d already started going through this cookbook and putting post-it tabs on the recipes that looked interesting. Pretty sure I tabbed 80% of the recipes in the cow section. Meal #1 is a holdover from last week as I didn’t take into account my lack of desire to cook after emptying the kitchen for painting. Oops.
