A great meal in a packet. Can easily be adjusted so each packet has what individuals like.

This recipe is from the Gas Light Inn in Atlanta, GA. It is absolutely wonderful. According to the original recipe you can substitute dried herbs (2 teaspoons dried dillweed, and 1 teaspoon dried basil). I have tried this variation several times and it does not affect the flavor. I have also used frozen greenbeans (GASP!). I just put them in with the carrots and the potatoes for the full steam cooking time of 10 minutes. In order to speed up preparation, I do not wait for the vegetables to cool, they go straight from the steamer to the packet, then right to the oven. My husband does not like fish, so I make his packet with chicken and it is also wonderful.<br/>I am including a link to the recipe that has some slight prep variations: http://virtualcities.com/ons/ga/a/gaa55011.htm
