Mid-May Meal Plan

Slowly, gradually, (and sometimes actually rather rapidly), much of the world feels like it’s clicking into higher gear. Now a month fully vaccinated, my
family—and most of my friends—are working our way back into “normal” life. A couple of weeks ago, I had my first indoor restaurant meal in over a year at a diner on the Upper West Side of New York City. I’ll probably never know if the omelet I ordered was in fact the best omelet ever made, or if having someone take my order and bring it to me at a table made it taste like the omelet of my dreams.
And while a return to restaurant dining feels both miraculous and familiar at the same time (and we all need to keep supporting restaurants, big time!), it’s really the re-opening of entertaining that has my blood pumping. Do you know what I’ve missed so much over the past fourteen months? Doubling a recipe. Seriously, just looking at a recipe and thinking, “Well, I’m going to have to make a larger batch” brings me a level of joy that’s hard to describe. 
I pulled out a stack of oversize serving platters the other day that have been gathering dust in this year of contraction, and they are washed and ready to be filled with generous portions of all sorts of spring and summer fare. I’m still planning to host larger groups outside for the time being, but I cannot wait to hoist up a big platter of Greek salad or a pile of grilled chicken for the masses.
And Memorial Day approaches! Below you’ll find a bevy of choices for these final weeks of spring.
