What’s on for the Weekend? A Soup-er Special

Pleasant_Lake_Thaw_02After several days of warm but yucky weather, it’s time to cheer up. (Especially if there is no end in sight to the gloom.) How about casual get together? Saturday lunch or pre-Downton Abbey Sunday night supper, invite a few pals over for a few laughs and a cup of soup.

Start with a beautiful antipasto platter. Let everyone help themselves to wonderful cheeses, delicious prosciutto and roasted veggies. Invite everyone to make their own crostinis with White Bean Hummus or Chicken Liver Pâté. If you want to get a little fancy (but still easy), whip up some Roasted Shrimp with Tarragon Aioli. Don’t forget to add a salad. Roasted Cauliflower, Radicchio & Arugula Salad sounds good.

Time for soup. For a bit of spice, try my Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup. Thinking something more luxurious … how about Lobster-Corn Chowder? It’s elegant enough for Downton and hearty after a long walk. Speaking of hearty, there’s always Pasta e Fagioli (& a Whole Lot More).

For dessert … nibble on Cherry-Pistachio Biscotti or Root ‘n’ Tooty Good ‘n’ Fruity Oatmeal Cookies or both! For a special treat, add tiny cups of Hot White Chocolate .

Have a great weekend and friends and bon appétit!
