Confession: I’m somewhat obsessed with food. I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to feed people. I even love talking about food.
I feel much better now.
Since food is such an important part of my life it has managed to make a significant appearance in my novel as well. The two couples in Meant to Be meet as neighbors and their friendship develops as they share weekly dinners together. One of the characters, Marienne, is an amazing cook, and the meals she prepares are often mentioned in the book, which is why the recipes I archive here will often be “her” recipes. (All the characters like to eat, they just have some varying preferences.
In between weekly recipe posts, I’d like to know a bit about what my readers enjoy cooking or eating. I’m going to try out a new weekly post called “What’s For Dinner Wednesdays”. Each Wednesday I’d like to hear about the best dinner you ate the previous week. It doesn’t matter if it was something you cooked, something someone else cooked for you, or something you ate at a restaurant—I just want to know what it was. (I’m nosy that way.)
If it’s something you made yourself and you’d like to share the recipe, feel free to contact me (you can use the tab up top that says “contact me”) and I’ll consider posting it as a guest recipe some week. If it’s something you absolutely love to eat and you can’t find a recipe for it, maybe I can track one down for you. In the meantime, leave a comment and tell us all two things:
1) What was the best dinner you had in the past week?
2) Did you make it yourself or did someone else prepare it?
I’ll start by answering the question myself….
1) My best dinner in the past week was a grilled rosemary marinated chicken breast sandwich with Portobello mushrooms, melted swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and garlic mayonnaise on a toasted challah roll served with fresh cut French fries.
2) The chef at a local café prepared this, not me.
So, what was yours?
