I'm cooking for my 87 year old gluten free lady today. I could be in and out of there in 2 hours flat, but we usually chat it up the whole time, so it takes me longer.
Salmon with Apricot Glaze
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Roasted Green Beans with Shallots
Honey Glazed Carrots with Almonds
Pan Grilled Filet Mignon
Scalloped Potatoes with Ham
Roasted Chicken Breasts with Lemon and Garlic
Wild Rice Pilaf
Sauteed Fresh Corn with Brown Butter and Basil
Flourless Fudge Cookies
That's the menu I'd want. I like the way she eats!

I was off last night and decided to make that Marcella Hazan three ingredient sauce.
Never again. Shit went downhill quickly. My onion that I chopped in half came apart in like ten minutes.
How am I supposed to remove and discard an apart onion?
Picture of how it's supposed to look
Too expensive as well.
1. Butter $3 pound
2. Onion $1 medium one
3. Peeled whole tomatoes $2 can
Grand total of $6
I could buy four jars of Newman's own sauce for that.
Lambert, you're not going to like what I'm going to say about this. Here's the thing. When you are making something like this, with very few ingredients, each ingredient should be the best. The tomatoes should be San Marzano (like in Marcella's picture.) Not cheap tomatoes. The butter should be very good unsalted butter (not the kind that is 3.00 a pound). And I guess you just fish the onion out with a slotted spoon, I never did quite understand the reason for that.
That makes me a snob. I know. But it's true. Also, if she didn't mention salt, it needed salt. Not Morton's table salt. Sea salt.
