That's one way, but probably a much harder way. A friend gave us a cookbook around the holidays - "The Art of Simple Food." I love Chez Panisse Vegetables and actually I love Chez Panisse. I don't consider it to be the 'best' restaurant in America, but it's my favorite one.
Anyhow, my repertoire is growing a little stale. How many ratatouille, poulet a roti, & bolognese can one family eat?
So, as Spring begins, I'm going to make a meat, vegetable, sauce & dessert from this book each weekend. Let's see how it goes.
