It’s mud season in New Hampshire and we all need is a comforting lunch!
Call a few friends and get out the griddle. It’s time for our favorite lunch – grilled cheese and a mug of soup. Try my Not Your Ordinary Ham & Swiss Grilled Cheese or my The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich in the History of my Kitchen. In spite of their highfalutin names, they are delicious. Add a cup of soup, what could be better on a cold day. You can go with a classic: Roasted Tomato Soup with Fresh Corn. Since fresh local corn is still months away, you can skip the corn or use frozen shoepeg corn. Alternatively, you might like to try my Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup or my Wild Mushroom Soup.
What about dessert? Staying with the comfort theme, well, is there anything better than chocolate chip cookies? I think my Peanut-y Chocolate Chip Cookies may take the gold prize. Give them a try and let me know what you think. Alternatively, my Root ‘n’ Tooty Good ‘n’ Fruity Oatmeal Cookies are loaded with chocolate chips, dried fruit and nuts. They are delicious and, if you like, you can pretend they are even healthy.
How to spend the rest of the day? You could grumble at the gray skies. But, I’d vote for a field trip. Instead of sending everyone home to pout, take in movie or visit the museum. There is no reason to head right home. Make an evening of it! Why not? You’re already out and you’ve got your umbrellas! Give that restaurant you’ve been dying to try a go.
Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
What’s up with you this weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going
