When we get a reservation at “The Meemaw Hotel”…I go into entertaining mode and I begin to plan our meals. Meals fit for company. Such was the case when we hosted two of our favorite “foodie” house guests, and my menu ideas took flight. I planned for two “fancy” meals at our house, but a night “out on the town” for their first night in our home.
When Patricia and Stella arrived after their seven hour car trip, I took one look at the tired travelers and I asked them if they’d rather “eat in” after their long day. They were quick to say YES. So I began to think about what I could cook that would be quick, healthy and pretty on the plate. I remembered we had a package of cod in the freezer, and I knew our refrigerator was filled with fresh vegetables, so I opened a bottle (or two) of wine, and I told our guests to sit down and visit with me while I cooked. (My favorite way to spend the evening!) After studying our menu options, I made steamed cod and vegetables in parchment paper. Our guests loved the presentation….and so did I.
