We had fried chicken the other night, and I wanted to finish the chicken off and thought eating it cold would hit the spot. Something about cold fried chicken, it is better cold than it is reheated. I wondered aloud what would be good to go with it and Mrs J went right straight for baked beans and a macaroni salad. I can do that.
Mrs J was thinking elbow mac but we didn’t have any, there were some medium shells that I thought would work. I set those to boil and pondered dressings. We have a bottle of balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing that I wanted to try and that put me in mind of olives and olives reminded me of the roasted red peppers we still have. A rib of celery for the crunch and a few capers for the salt and we were good to go.
