Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day Ninety-Seven

It was a happy Father’s Day for me – we had a Zoom call with Jeff, and got to see part of his new residence (he tried carrying his laptop around to give us a full tour, but technology did not cooperate).

Dinner was another attempt at Crispy Frico Chicken Breasts With Mushrooms and Thyme – I used my Lodge Logic cast-iron skillet because it’s oven-safe, but I am pretty sure it heated up too much on the stove. There was much smoke, but no smoke alarms sounded, and it tasted pretty good, even though the mushrooms were seriously charred.

Next time, though, we’re not going to make it in one pot – we’ll use Anolon on the stove and transfer it to something else for the oven. And I’ll try putting some oil on the chicken before putting on the cheese in hopes that more cheese will stick to the chicken. Maybe I’ll even get real Parmesan cheese instead of the stuff in a green plastic container!
