Tuesday January 8
Though we said that this was one of our standbys, we actually haven't had it since September 2006. That's way too long for something so good and easy.
This time we patted the breasts (see puttanesca, below) with rosemary and thyme, and threw in some sliced Yukon gold potatoes. They sucked up a dangerous amount of the liquid, but luckily Holt smelled them toasting in time. Still, for the occasion he invented a Fifth Law of the Kitchen:
"It's not burned, it's caramelized."
