September Weekend Special – A New England Dinner

What a gorgeous day!
There’s not a cloud in the brilliant blue sky. It’s September in New Hampshire! The rest of the weekend promises a mixed bag of sun, clouds and the possibility of rain. Rain or shine, enjoy the weekend … cozying up in an armchair with a book, hanging out at the Farmers’ Market and hiking in the hills.

And if you are getting together with friends …

… let your local farmers inspire your dinner!

There is lots of delicious corn and beautiful tomatoes in the market. If it’s chilly where you are, start your dinner with Roasted Tomato Soup with Fresh Corn. Otherwise, try my Corn, Tomato & Arugula Salad.

And for the main event?

Lobster prices are at record lows! It’s time to indulge. Keep it casual with Joe Nye’s Perfect Lobster. Lobsters are easier to cook than you think. If you don’t want to tackle the task, many markets will cook your lobster for you so no muss no fuss. Serve the lobster with a little melted butter or dress it up with Lemon-Basil Aioli . A Couscous Salad with Grilled Vegetables will make a great addition to your dinner.

What about a sweet finish? It’s a crispy toss-up. How about Blueberry or Apple Crisp with a scoop of cold and creamy vanilla ice cream? My grandfather always asked for a scoop of ice cream with his dessert. If the pie or cake was mediocre, he could always enjoy the ice cream!

Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
