Menu: Slice of Heaven

My Mother-in-Law was visiting for a while in the earlier part of December through the Christmas holiday as she was in recovery from a total knee replacement surgery! Intense for her, fantastic for us. Kaitlyn was able to spend some quality time with her Nana daily! As part of my caregiving services I was the executive chef of Hotel Patterson's main restaurant---generally I wear the chef hat with ease but with Nana around I have to admit I was quite intimidated. However, on a few occasions I would create a dish that would take her to Heaven and back. On this particular evening I delivered a stuffed pepper to Nana while she was still in a light slumber. Kaitlyn and I went to check on her and found her in Cuisine Heaven!
With Kaitlyn in tote I chop, steam, blend, mix, slice, puree, spin, stir, heat, boil, bake, grill, toast and even roast--possibly this is why Hotel Patterson's restaurant is getting such rave reviews these days!
