I finally realized 'what is for dinner' is such a fucking stupid phrase, one that cattle raising folks used to sell beef.
so no more, fuck that.
escarole is one of the more underrated vegetable. I think it's limited utilization in everyday cooking partially because people don't know what the fuck it is. It is like lettuce, but much more sturdy, and it is also nicely bitter like chicory, and that is the family where it came from.
hence, it need some cooking, and some fat/sweetness/spice to balance with the bitterness. but there is not doubt that it is really delicious. Sure I also ate lamb chop and roasted carrots (it is the holiday season after all), but the star on this plate was the green vegetable.
