As for the rest of the week …
I love Sue Li’s recipe for a caramelized onion galette. Since it’s a weeknight, I’m going to try it with store-bought puff pastry instead of her marvelous dough. Fingers crossed!
Ali Slagle’s latest recipe, for sweet and spicy pan-seared pork chops, is fast and super flavorful. You baste the chops in ginger butter, then cloak them in a sticky whiskey-molasses sauce. I might throw some carrots in the pan to go with the pork, and serve mashed potatoes on the side.

Now, it’s nothing to do with headcheese or tofu skins, but The Times’s Blake Gopnik put me on to this Corri-Lynn Tetz show at Arsenal Contemporary in Manhattan. Blake’s right. The paintings are terrifying.
Even if you don’t live in New York City, Curbed’s “39 Reasons to Love New York” is a joyful romp.
You might like this story of true crime, “A Gilded Age Tale of Murder and Madness.” It’s by Kay Adams and Nancy Markey, in Narratively.
Finally, here’s a new poem from Ama Codjoe in The New York Review of Books, “Mother-of-Pearl.” Think on that, and I’ll see you later in the week. Melissa will write you tomorrow.
