Weekend Special … Comfort Food

Maybe it’s the after holiday let-down.
Then again, maybe it’s the cold, grey day. 

Whatever the cause, we’re all in a need of a little comfort and a little comfort food. Fight the cold by filing your house with the warm and wonderful aroma of braising beef, lamb, chicken or fish.

Need a little inspiration? A few ideas? Here goes!

What could be better than an ode to Julia with Braised Beef Bourguignon? Well, maybe a traditional Carbonnade á la Flamande – beef is braised with lots of onions in beer in this yummy Belgian specialty. Tired of beef? How about a beautiful Braised Lamb with Artichokes and Mushrooms. (Watch me make this wonderful lamb dish on WMUR’s Cook’s Corner.) For a little spice, try my Sort’a Like Jambalaya or Spicy Chicken Stew.

What will I be cooking up this weekend? The next Eat Well-Do Good dinner is this coming Sunday, January 8th!

As of a few minutes ago, there are two seats available. I would be delighted to see you around my table next month!

I’ll be cooking a delicious Mediterranean Seafood Stew (but Caribbean Fish Stew would also be a great choice!)

We’ll start with a great salad. I’m leaning towards Caesar Salad with Parmesan Croutons but I just bought some mushrooms and Mixed Greens with Roasted Mushrooms, Gorgonzola & Toasted Walnuts is pretty tempting.

For dessert, I’ll be serving tiny cups of creamy, sweet and hot White Chocolate with my favorite Snowballs.

Enjoy and bon appétit!
