Take Out: Mid Winter Comfort Meal

What I took to 2 families tonight:

*Smothered Macaroni (Deborah Madison-macaroni, potatoes, gruyere, parsley, carmelized onions)
*Chicken Cutlets (thinly sliced chicken, sourdough bread crumbs, pecorino romano)
*Tossed Salad Greens (spring mix tossed with my bff's new dressing, which is now our official house dressing)
*Chocolate Chip Cookies (Thomas Keller's version...more on that later)

Cookbook: Keller Kills Me

Oh boy. It came in the mail last week. The truth is, it was on back order for several weeks. D tried to get it for me for Christmas. I tried to get it for myself for my birthday(that was in January). No matter. It is here now. The first recipe I will try are his Chocolate Chip Cookies. After that I'm going to throw all care to the wind and attempt the Fried Chicken. I'm inviting Lindy (my mentor) over for that one. I'll let you know how it goes. Now I'm off to clean an incredibly dirty kitchen.
