This looks great - I agree with you about supermarket chicken. I'm lucky that my local store carries free range chicken from a local farm.

Which came first? the chicken or the egg? In your case eggs, the deviled eggs which I just made and served with a delicious radicchio and red onion caeser salad, so tasty I forgot the parmesan and didn't miss it a bit. How lucky you are to get 2 free range chickens a month! Have you noticed you never see stewing hens in the market any more? They were so incredibly cheap; you had to cook them forever but they made fabulous curry or chicken and dumplings. My favorite retro chicken dishes are chicken divan with broccoli and sherry-parmesan bechamel and chicken paprika.


What were your mother's secrets to keeping a kitchen cool? I think in my tiny NYC apartment it might just be an impossibility, but still... For now I guess that means I'll have to wait to try this recipe once we no longer have 80 degree weather!


This is an extra-nicely written entry, I think, much in the Laurie Colwin vein.
