I'll be honest with you, I haven't cooked much this week—hardly at all, actually. One night I was struck with a sudden, random craving for a poké bowl; another, it was chicken tikka masala. (On both occasions, I turned to my friend Seamless, the takeout delivery app, for instant gratification.) Two of my friends were also visiting from out of town the last few days, and their primary agenda was to do everything but cook in my tiny NYC apartment.
Next week, though, I'm ready to get back in the groove and into my kitchen. I plan on starting off with Martha Stewart's one-pan pasta—it's so quick, so easy, and has a little bit of kick to it, which I love. Once hump day rolls around, I'll probably treat myself to some oven-fried chicken, maybe with a side of perfect pan-roasted potatoes.
