Winter Weekend Special

chairliftI played hooky this morning and spent a couple of hours on the mountain. Holey moley, what a day! The skiing was superb – fabulous conditions and the day – glorious and sunny. So now the only question is … will it last over the long holiday weekend?

Are you planning a long weekend on the slopes? Need a few après-ski ideas?

After a long soak in the tub, you’ll want nothing more than to sit by the fire, sip and glass of wine and enjoy a few nibbles. Try some Smoked Salmon Mousse with crisp crackers or cucumber wedges. Add a bowl of Spicy Olives and another of Roasted Almonds.

For a traditional après ski, nothing beats a hearty pasta. Fettuccine with Sauce BologneseLinguine with Bitter Greens & Roasted Mushrooms or Spaghetti with Sauce Puttanesca are all great choices!

Add a beautiful salad. I’ve got some beets in the refrigerator and am looking forward to a delicious Mixed Greens with Roasted Beet & Lentils. Of course there is a simpler option. Who doesn’t like a crisp Caesar Salad.

For a sweet finish to the evening, Rustic Apple Tart sound pretty good. Or maybe my favorite Lemon Tart. I found Meyer lemons in the supermarket this week!

On the slopes or lazy in front of the fire, have a great weekend! Bon appétit!

How will you spend the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
