Macy is known for making beautiful and delicious cakes for special occasions, and I first met her when she made a birthday cake for my friend Virginia last year.

Last week she came for her first gig as a Chef. She had proposed three different entrees with two sides each and had sent me a grocery list. I did the grocery shopping and had all the necessary food ready for her arrival.
The first entree was a delicious meatloaf. There were six dinners with this entree with sides of green beans/wax beans and mashed potatoes.

She had everything planned and moved smoothly from one task to another, actually multi-tasking as she went. I was so impressed.
After the meatloaf was in the oven, she began making chicken gumbo.

After four hours Macy had prepared 18 meals with a bit leftover, had cleaned up the kitchen and was ready to depart for another job. Yes, Macy is amazing and although a great baker, she's not just a baker. She's a great cook too. Dan and I have already enjoyed some of the chicken gumbo---yummy! We're looking forward to more Macy Dinners.
