Supper Club #228 : Pregnant Lady’s Gotta Eat (Pie)

Our two hundred, twenty-eighth supper club meal was prepared in a micro kitchen in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It was made with a pregnant person in mind, by that same pregnant person, and no pregnant person stone was left unturned. Pickles? Check. Ice cream? Check? Virgin cocktails? You get the picture. The key was the so-called pregnancy power foods: broccoli, leafy greens, lean meats, fruit, nuts, and pie. See below for the full menu.

As it turns out, pregnant people enjoy delicious food. Notably delicious were the blackened snapper sandwiches. I have not been offered a piece of blackened fish once in the last ten years and was very glad to see it on the menu. It’s been so long, I had kind of forgotten what even made fish blackened. Then I used the internet. See below if you’re interested in a solid Cajun blackened seasoning mix recipe –

The oven was pint-sized, but there were still pies made because a pregnant lady’s gotta eat and she’s gotta eat pies.
