Care Package for Margy
Lucky me, I got to go over to my parents' new place for dinner, while poor Margy was stuck at work. But she didn't miss out. My mother, who tends to overestimate the amount of food she needs to make, had plenty of leftovers and packed up a nice dinner for Margy.
This is one of Mom's classics, simply called chicken and sausage. She takes a big pan and fills it with cut-up sausages and chicken pieces (this time it was drumsticks only), plus garlic cloves, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms, and then tops it with canned tomato, bread crumbs, herbs, and olive oil. After a spell in the oven, it's browned and crisp on top, but everything below the surface stays moist and juicy.
