Dinner Tonight is....

a grown-up meal!

Jake was out of the house tonight and so I decided we'd have a grown-up meal.... and by that I mean we'd eat something that was simply out of Jake's comfort zone. He's 11 - so the zone is pretty small.

This picture doesn't really capture the meal all that well, but we had cod cooked on the grill and asparagus.

I picked up all the ingredients from Shaws and went to town. I was a little nervous about the flaky fish cooking ... and staying together... well on our grill. I decided to cook the fish in individual servings wrapped in tinfoil. The cod was seasoned with salt and pepper and laid on tinfoil sprayed in PAM. I threw a wee bit of butter on the top for additional flavor/moisture. I then crunched up some Ritz Crackers for the top and dropped some Bleu Cheese on that. I wrapped them up like a bagel to go and put those puppies on the grill. 20 minutes later and they were done.

The asparagus was seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper. I bunched them in groups of 3-4 and then wrapped those suckers in prosciutto. I drizzled a little bit more olive oil on them before putting them on the grill on low heat. When the prosciutto was crispy, they were done ... about 5-8 minutes.

The meal was very loosely based off of these two recipes online:

Another great summer meal ... at home... on the grill .... with the family.
