15 February 2009

Valentine's weekend. Always a weird holiday...

Winter is on its way out, and the promise of Spring is near. Time to stop hibernating and pay a bit more attention to the waistline. I am looking forward to supper and music on the dining porch soon. For tonight's Sunday Supper, I went a little less comfort food and tried to be somewhat healthy. Our buddies Jeff and Cory joined us, so it made it all worthwhile. I veered to a classic French entree, Fish en Papillote (Fish in Parchment Paper). I steamed some wild line-caught Cod in parchment with organic matchstick carrots and leeks. It was a refreshing change from heavy comfort food. Now, if only "birds had bank accounts," as Lucinda Williams croons, all would be fine and dandy.

Spring or be sprung!

The Menu:

- Fish in Papillote: Wild Line-Caught Cod in Parchment
with Matchstick Carrots and Leeks

- Classic Shrimp Cocktail

- Hearts of Romaine with Simple Dressing and Shaved Parmigiano Reggiano

- Grilled Chiabatta with a Drizzle of EVOO
