Weekend Special – Apres-ski Mediterranean Dinner

It looks like sun and maybe a bit more snow this weekend. Whether you chose to get out on the slopes, head to the rink or ramble through the woods, it looks like a great weekend to spend time outdoors.

The fun doesn’t have to end when the sun sets. Why not invite friends and family in for dinner?

Tired of the same old, same old? Need a little inspiration? A few ideas?

Here goes!

Start by gathering around the fireplace and unwinding with a glass of wine. No need for a lot of complicated hors d’oeurvres. Keep it simple with some Spicy Olives and my favorite Roasted Almonds.

When you’re ready for dinner, keep it fresh and light and start with a crunchy salad with Fennel & Feta.

Next, my Spicy Chicken Stew will not only fill your bellies with gladness, it will fill the house with warm and wonderful aromas. Add some couscous, plain or fancy with dried fruit and pine nuts and dinner is done.

Finally, top it off with Sweet Dream Bars. If you’re lucky you may have a few leftover to bring to the mountain on Sunday.

Enjoy and bon appétit!
