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!
