Aaahhh... Sundays!

Noah and I both woke up with a hankerin' to MAKE SOME FOOD! We had so many projects in mind we were stepping all over each other in our tiny kitchen. The first thing I did was make strawberry ice cream. My custard turned out perfect and I got to use my chinois (twice!) to strain the custard then strain the seeds from the strawberry puree. I jumped out of the kitchen to make room for Chef Noah and his fried chicken. He soaks it in buttermilk first to tenderize the meat, then he serves it with a mixed green salad (so we don't feel so guilty about eating fried food).

Another side dish he made, (while simultaneously doing everything else) was sauteed purple baby artichokes, green beans, and garlic.

For dessert, Noah used some pastry dough he had in the freezer and baked it with fresh figs and strawberries. We served it with my strawberry ice cream.

It's so nice to see you and your chef cooking together. The fried chicken looks so crispy and crunchy. Gotta love Sundays!

Could you print an easy buttermilk chicken recipe so I can make some. It looks so good. Love You!
