Tonight's supper was fresh caught stripe bass and cod from my neighbor who fishes with his brother-in-law off the coast. I consulted my son on the best way to prepare it. Based on his suggestion, I placed the fish in foil packets and topped the fish with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, fresh thyme, cilantro (my husband thought he picked up parsley), thinly sliced lemon and some EVOO.
I closed them up and popped them on a preheated outdoor gas grill, as I wanted to keep the kitchen cool. I turned off the center burner and placed the packets on the grill for a total of 8 minutes and turning them midway through. I had some leftover pasta salad from the weekend and I made a green salad. Perfection!
My husband and I had another lovely evening supper on the porch watching the sunset over the Shark River Inlet. There is a light, cool breeze blowing.
Tonight's meal was Fettuccine Alfredo, but made with cauliflower. The recipe is from the website Pinch of Yum. The pasta tastes like a lighter version of original butter and cream recipe. I recommend you give it a try.
For my weekend guests, leftovers will be in the upstairs refrigerator. Recipe after the jump.
What a dreary day again! I am working during the dinner hour tonight, so I am prepping ahead for my husband. Tonight's menu Chicken Chili, a recipe from Marian Burros, which appeared in the New York Times many years ago. I am also making Sweet Corn Bread. Although my husband declined this, warm bread on a day like today seems like a good idea. My son's girlfriend made this for Thanksgiving 2015. Everyone loved it.
