Food: Dinner Tonight – Lemony Chicken and Orzo

I got a late start today – after waking up at 330 in the morning, to get glimpse of the only blood moon for 2019 – which was more silvery by the coastal San Francisco. But that’s ok. It was a beautiful sight no less – clouds stacked upon clouds, and the full-moon larger than usual, adding the perfect soothing shades to the fluff, glistening over the Pacific.

I grabbed a fresh-bought novel from the stack I brought back with me from England, and got back into bed – with dog by my side, I attempted to read, but ended up falling asleep instead – waking up suddenly and realizing I hadn’t shared a subject of interest with all of you this morning.

So – first of all – thank you to those who emailed me for a copy of a novel I had written a few years back. Your copy will be in the mail in the next few days.

Second, I am jumping right into an easy dinner on this cold San Francisco day, followed up movie night – the film Roma, which is getting rave reviews


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts or small thighs
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 Meyer lemon, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 a bunch kale, roughly torn
  • zest + juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill {more}

Have you seen the film – if so, don’t say anything – I am watching it tonight –
