Day 71: Cod Gratin, Noodles with Chicken and Veggies

I finally made the cod and potato gratin I’ve been wanting to make since I heard of it when we saw Come From Away last year. We had some cod in the freezer that was all slightly odd shapes so it was a good use of it since you flake the cod for the recipe. I used up the last of the 10 lb bag of Russets I bought back in the end of April and some parsley and spring onion from this week’s produce box. It is so cold and chilly here today that making a casserole at noon didn’t seem strange. I really do love making the biggest meal of the day at lunchtime. It makes the whole rest of the day so much more relaxing.

For dinner, I sauteed up the leftover chicken and cabbage from earlier in the week and the little bit of bok choy from last night and tossed it with some Indomie Mi Goreng. Those noodles have been the real MVP of pandemic cooking. They cook in 3 minutes and are good with pretty much any leftovers you can toss in. I think they are a little small to be the main meal of the day unless you add a ton but they are perfect for a light dinner or lunch.

I’ve been working my way through the In the Dark podcast about Curtis Flowers. What a case! I’m amazed at the reporting and legwork these women did.

I finished This Is Big: How the Founder of Weight Watchers Changed the World — and Me by Marisa Meltzer and wrote a quick review.
