So it’s Sunday afternoon at 5:00. I’ve just finished watching the Giants get slammed by the Bengals while simultaneously testing two recipes for Well Fed 2. Tomorrow is “errands day” with trips to the post office and grocery store on the agenda. But then I remember: I need to cook chicken breasts and sweet potatoes for my breakfast tomorrow.

I don’t know what’s gotten into me this week, but I’ve been on a serious Asian food kick. My poor cumin has been languishing in the spice cabinet as I reach for the Chinese five-spice powder and ginger. We recently got a new delivery of grass-fed beef that just about filled our freezer, so I’ve been working my way through back inventory of frozen meat. Tucked into far left corner of...
