It’s a gorgeous day in New Hampshire and the weekend promises more of the same. Yesterday, I made a few suggestions for an elegant outdoor feast.
Today it’s all about living and grilling easy in T-shirts, shorts and sneakers. Here are a few ideas:
Relax with a beer, Shandy or a glass of wine and nibble a chip or two with Guacamole and my Simply Delicious Salsa. Serve either or both. Add a few raw veggies for a lighter, brighter bite. No need to rush, relax and enjoy the perfect evening until you are ready to …
Move on the main event: If you like cheeseburgers you will love my Not Your Ordinary Burger. If you don’t feel like a burger, a really good chicken or turkey sausage is a great alternative to an ordinary hotdog. Spicy or mild, there are lots of good alternatives in your supermarket. And for a few great side dishes, how about New Potato Salad with Gorgonzola and Jicama Slaw or my Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes.
End with something sweet: If you’ve got kids running around playing hide and seek or flashlight tag, brownies, cookies or bars are the answer! Try a batch of my nieces’ favorite Peanut Butter Brownies. For more grown up tastes you can’t beat Espresso Brownies.
Have a wonderful weekend! Bon appétit!
