Late Fall Weekend Special

pleasant_lake_autumn_clouds_sun_01A few clouds, a little sun and a little rain. It’s late fall in New Hampshire. Chase away any November blues this weekend with a fun and festive dinner. It will give you something to do while it’s raining and your house will smell wonderful!

Here are a few ideas:

Let dinner bubble in the oven while you enjoy a long chat and a glass of wine. If you’d like something to nibble, how about my Baba Ganoush. It is one of my favorite dips and reminds me evening by the water in Turkey and Israel. Serve the Baba Ganoush with wedges of warm pita bread and fresh vegetables.

When you are ready, move to the table and a lovely salad. A Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes or Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese Salad sounds delicious.

What could be better than braised beef at the end of dreary day? Either Braised Short Ribs or Carbonnade á la Flamande – Beer Braised Beef & Onions will be the perfect. Serve the beef with my family’s favorite Smashed Potatoes.

And for dessert? Delight you guests with, perfect for the season, Pumpkin & Spice Cookies and tiny cups of White Hot Chocolate. (I’m never sure – should that be White Hot Chocolate or Hot White Chocolate!?!)

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
