My apartment is a pile of boxes! All of my cookbooks, except for Dorie’s, are packed. The kitchen, however, is still on the “To Pack” list. T minus 7 days to moving day. It’s going to be a fun weekend. For this reason, I was grateful for an easy one this week. May I present, Tuna Rillettes.
I love rillettes, and a small container of goose rillettes is not an uncommon sight in our refrigerator. Not homemade though. Dorie’s Sardine Rillettes was my first attempt at making them at home and I’m very much looking forward to the Salmon Rillettes recipe. And yet, this week’s recipe Tuna Rillettes just sounded so, I don’t know, boring. And the idea of adding curry powder didn’t help. I love a good curry as much as the next, but I’ve never been a fan of adding curry flavor randomly to other recipe. I never understood the whole curry chicken salad fad. Just weird.
But I tried it and I loved it. So quick, so easy. I will make this again.
Now, a word about the Green As Spring Veal Stew before I sign off. Last week’s recipe was, well, unphotogenic seems to be the nicest thing I can say about it. So, I will not inflict any of my photos on you here. It actually tasted good, but I just couldn’t seem to get past the look of the dish. I was expecting a slightly brighter green and mine came out, well, let’s move on.
I will be spending my weekend packing. My husband will be spending his weekend buying and setting up a new grill. Yes, you read that correctly, the new grill gets to move into our new place before I do. To say that he’s excited about our new balcony would be an understatement.
