Capers Catering

Several years ago, a tiny meat-and-three inside a gas station in Alabaster came out of nowhere and started winning local readers' favorite awards, including best inexpensive restaurant, best take-out, and runner-up for best meat-and-three and best fried green tomatoes in the 2006 Birmingham News' Readers' Choice Awards.

Yesterday, I got a taste of Capers Comfort Foods through their catering arm. I was speaking at a local writers' group workshop at the Homewood Public Library. I have to admit the big foil pans and plastic silverware weren't particularly appealing. How good could it be, I thought, having traveled so far and not being kept warm? I was pleasantly surprised. Other than having a little too much salt for my taste, everything was delicious -- definitely above average, especially for this side of the mountain. There was tender ham, delicious breaded chicken breasts, green beans with just a bit of a kick, great mashed potatoes, and an Oreo-pudding-trifle dessert that everyone raved about.

I totally enjoyed the meal as well, Deborah. I was pleasantly surprised and would give them a "thumbs up" recommendation.

Good seeing you yesterday!
