We’ve had houseguests visiting for the past 2 weeks (2 different couples, 1-week each), and i just love to cook up a a special meal for friends, as you know from past posts. So, since we’re renting a little house close to Granville Island , my friend Stephanie and I walked over and bought a bunch of fresh, organic, local food to cook up a great meal. On the menu was
a big-ole salad made with heirloom tomatoes, basil and mozzarela cheese (local), with a splash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The main dish, as you can see, is fresh mussels and clams, steamed on the grill with a thai broth -sopped up with chunks of sourdough bread, just out of the oven, and some local wine. Lots of wine.
Now, I think that was my favorite meal, except for the fresh lobster I had when they took us out to dinner at a great restaurant (Monks) on the water.
Needless to day, I love seafood. Love it! So now, I’d love to hear from my peeps what YOUR favorite meal is. Leave a reply here, and if it’s something really different, leave your recipe!
