I used to make this al the time when you were a little blossoming cook…I think genetic memory just kicked in. It’s also great with chicken livers.

Perfect Summer Pairings at P.F. Chang’s (Plus Contest!)
Great writing, Jilly! The last time I was at PF Changs was for an uncountable birthday…or, unaccountable, perhaps…but I had a delicious lunch, saw nobody more famous than my next door neighbors…as soon as you see fit, I will babysit the littles so you can get out and have an actual dinner with your husband…maybe back to PF Changs, or somewhere more exotic…my treat!!!
