I had a weird fall a week ago. It took a while, but I finally got x-rayed today to discover that beyond a torn ligament or two, I also fractured my fibula, just above my ankle.
Since hopping around on one foot impeded me from taking pics while i cooked, i have been remiss in posting new recipes.
Since I’m going under the knife tomorrow morning, I allowed Pauline to cook me, under my direction, what might be my last meal.
Buttermilk, panko chicken thighs.

Update: I survived both th meal and the surgery.
