From Dish Amelia:
I’ve moved! Moving is a chore and a pain of course, but there are wonderful, meaningful and exciting aspects too. I come from a place where you “smudge” the corners of a new house with fragrant smoke to clean and claim it. I believe that your dreams from the first night of sleep in a new home are important, and I think the first thing you eat in it has some significance, its the first time you commune with those windows and walls, and a deal is struck. As soon as I found my knife, I made this. Its a Waldorf Salad of sorts. And no I did not move to Astoria. I’m cookin in Brooklyn, honey.
A few stalks of celery, chopped
a green apple, chopped
3 scallions, chopped very thin
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
a handful of walnuts, roughly chopped
a smaller handful of dried currants
1 small container of plain nonfat greek yogurt
A drizzle of honey
1T of New Mexican dried, ground red chile
Combine ingredients. No, its not technically cooking. Its more of a ritual. The components are fresh, the windows open. Earthy, like lying on your back and staring up at unfamiliar shadows on the night ceiling, hot and cold like the running water and noisy radiators, and healthy, like your new life.
