I was working from home, so I could make something a little fussy like granita. The rhubarb chutney and poppy seed chicken were delicious, didn't care as much for the vegetables or the granita.
Rhubarb Chutney with bread, cheese, crackers
I haven't had many chutneys, but this one was great. Loved the color, paired well with the sharp Beecher's flagship cheese. Everyone thought this one was a hit.
Poppy Seed Chicken Salad
I love poaching chicken, it's so easy. I always use plain yogurt instead of mayo (hate) and it always tastes fine to me. I'd make this again for any lunch or brunch especially.
Spring Vegetable Skillet
I couldn't find snap peas, so I used green beans instead. This was just..blah. I thought it was too oily as well.
Apple Tarragon Granita
This was...interesting. Lesson number one - don't try to use a food processor instead of a blender for liquids - I got sticky apple juice all over my counter. The granita was refreshing, but I don't think I like tarragon all in my face - I like it more hidden.
