A three day weekend is always a good excuse for lots of cooking, so I did some. 

On Saturday night I tried a pork chop recipe from the new Cook's Illustrated.  Very nice.  Sauced with brandy, prunes and shallots.  Very tasty.  And their recommendation to start the chops in a cold pan worked out beautifully.

Sunday morning saw some Parsi egg curry (scrambled eggs with onions, and a little coriander, tumeric, ginger) and some fruit salad (with a little Vietnamese cinnamon from Penzey's, makes all the difference)

I have absolutely no recollection of what I made Sunday night, but I recall it being good.  Hmmmm.

Last night was salmon fillets baked in parchment with some salt and pepper, a little tarragon, spinach and watercress, and a few nameko mushrooms.  That worked out fabulously, and was even popular with the picky 5 year old.  To go along with it I made some rice and lentil pilaf (just rice, lentils, chicken broth and a little curry powder) which also went over well with the troops.
