OK Folks. November sort of got away from me, so I’ve got a few Bread Street Kitchen dinners to tell you about. So I’m cleaning out the refrigerator, so to speak, to show you some of the other things we ate in November.
Butterflied Chicken Breasts with Tomato and Olive Salsa
This recipe was ACES. Everyone loved it. Sure, the tomato and olive salsa had a 1990s vibe about it, but that didn’t bother me. It was good to eat. Butterflying the chicken also made it quicker to cook, which is always a bonus when you’re trying to get dinner on the table on a weeknight. We would definitely eat this again.
Meatballs with Tomato Sauce
I’m sorry to say that this recipe was less successful. The problem in this family is that everyone loves the Polpo meatballs, and it’s going to have to be a really extraordinary specimen to knock those meatballs out of the top spot. Unfortunately, the Bread Street Kitchen meatballs were not that extraordinary specimen. Don’t get me wrong: We’re always happy to have meatballs for dinner at our house. But it’s a sad day when we spend some of the dinner saying that we’re sorry it’s not the ones we usually have.
‘Njuda Tuna Steaks
We first had ‘Njuda at Pizza Pilgrims in Soho more than two years ago and we haven’t looked back since. For those of you unfamiliar with this ingredient, ‘Njuda is an Italian delicacy that is a spicy sausage spread. Until now, we only ever dotted it on our pizza. But putting it on top of tuna steaks was absolute genius. Tuna is a bit bland to begin with, but once you add the ‘Njuda, it’s a whole new level of deliciousness. Yum. I will definitely be making this again for Fish Friday. Highly recommended.
