I have been blessed to cook for some wonderful retirees in Riverside for several years! They love American standard comfort food: Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Apple Pie, etc! On this week’s menu for them, I made Oven BBQ Meatballs, Lasagna, Oven Fried Chicken, and Blueberry Cobbler (I have used this recipe a million times from Epicurious. It’s called “Bill’s Blueberry Cobbler” and it’s really great; probably due to the large amount of butter! It makes it so crispy around the edges!)  I always try to make a few nice fresh vegetables for the Mrs. (the Mr. only likes one vegetable: canned green beans! Which I am more than happy to make him!) But for her, I make simple, but unusual vegetable sides like Asparagus with Fennel Pollen and Pine Nuts, Zucchini and Summer Squash with Brown Butter and Rosemary, Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots and Roasted Grape Tomatoes.
