A Will It Get Warmer Weekend Special?

icicles_02Again with the Polar Vortex. Every morning the thermometer mocks me with temperature of minus five and minus ten. And every afternoon, I defy the chill and walk down to Pingree Road and back. Saturday promises a bit of respite. The temperatures may climb as high as thirty! I may even walk around the lake.

Then it’s time to settle in by the fire with a nice glass of wine and a few Rosemary Cashews and/or Spicy Olives!

And for dinner? Even if we have a quick breather from the frigid blast, it’s a long way until spring. So keep that comfort food on the menu. For cozy warmth, try my Mac & Cheese with Roasted Broccoli & Sun-dried Tomatoes. It’s a lovely combination and perfect on a cold night. Add a salad, maybe Caesar or mixed greens with a Classic Vinaigrette, and dinner is done.

And dessert? Take a good-humored swipe at the cold with Frosty the Snowman Cupcakes!

Stay warm and bon appétit!
