My favorite kind of Saturday night involves Coalfire take-out, homemade salad and dessert, and the ability to wander between the apartment and the back deck comfortably. With or without a baby in-hand (no shortage of those).
Dessert is a favorite salty/sweet concoction. You make a giant oatmeal cookie then crumble it. Then layer it with slightly sweetened strawberries and fresh whipped cream (sweeten a bit with powdered sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract). The oatmeal crust for Momofuku’s Crack Pie works beautifully as your cookie and I doubled the recipe to get another layer out of it.
