Vulcan-Schmulcan! It happened again! That mix of rain, then snow and finally cold. Quite frankly, it doesn’t make me very happy. Our ski season is short enough without a March deluge. But, I’ll cheer up if you will.
Although it’s not the most elegant of dinners, a long and relaxing evening with a charcuterie, roasted vegetable and cheese board and a hearty mug of soup sounds pretty good.
Light the fire, put on some music and open a bottle of wine. Settle in for a good long chat, a few good jokes and some interesting stories. While you are relaxing share some delicious cheeses, prosciutto and sausage and your favorite roasted veggies. Let everyone mix and match and create their own special crostini. Try Butternut Squash with prosciutto and Parmigiano-Reggiano, Beets with goat cheese, Mushrooms with fontina. For a final flourish and garnish, top with Caramelized Onions and a sprinkle of toasted nuts.
Have a relaxing weekend and bon appétit!
