Prompts: overdose :: gloss over :: poach
Some people cook from instinct, seldom from recipe. Marienka’s mother was like that; if you gave her a recipe, she’d gloss over it once to get the idea before setting out in her own direction, rarely in vain. It could be Cornish hens with red cabbage and potatoes; salmon with homemade dill sauce; potato pancakes made from scratch and served with apple sauce and sour cream; or catfish slaughtered fresh and then breaded.
It didn’t matter.
