But It’s the Weekend – a Rainy Days Special!

rainy_dayWhat happened to summer? We’re in for some soaking wet rain from Andrea, the first hurricane of the season. She’s moving up the coast and threatens to dampen our weekend cookoust. Let’s hope she moves in and out quickly.

Rain or shine, here’s hoping you will get a little R&R over the weekend with family and friends. Here are a few ideas for some weekend fun:

There is a pretty good chance that you’ll spend the evening inside! Enjoy some good company and a glass of wine while you nibble some of my Greek Stuffed Mushroom or Mushroom Crostini.

Around the table … start with great salad. Try my Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes. Next, I’m thinking grilled fish with some delicious Salsa Verde. Perfectly Grilled Swordfish sounds pretty good. (If the rain drives you inside, use a grill pan to cook the fish) Add my Israeli Couscous Salad with Grilled Vegetables.

For dessert, I’ve got a craving for something lemony. How about some smooth and creamy Lemon Mousse with a spoonful of fresh strawberries? Or a fabulous Lemon Tart.

Stay dry, have a great weekend and bon appétit!
