Spring Weekend Special

clearing_skies_pleasant_lakeBright blue ski and fluffy white clouds – sounds like a beautiful spring weekend. It looks like a good weekend to take a long walk or spend some time in the garden. Hopefully there’ll be a bit of a breeze to keep the black flies at bay.

It’s also a good time to invite friends around for a bistro dinner. If you need a little help, here are a few suggestions:

Gather around the table! Artichokes are in season! Start your meal with a delicious Steamed Artichoke with Bagna Cauda or Warm Lemon-Garlic Sauce or maybe some Artichoke Leaves with Shrimp.

For the main course give my Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Mushrooms & Mustard Sauce a try. Serve the pork with Roasted Asparagus & Walnuts and Lemon Roasted Potatoes.

In true French style, the salad comes after the main course. Try something with some crunch like my Fennel & Feta Salad or maybe a classic French Salade Verte (Green Salad).

My rhubarb is looking absolutely gorgeous! Either my warm and cozy Rhubarb Crisp or my sweet and tart Strawberry-Rhubarb Soup will be a great end to a great meal.
Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
