It’s Another Beautiful Summer Weekend Special

beach chairs on pleasant lakeThe forecast is in and the weatherheads are promising another beautiful weekend. Could we be any luckier!?! What could be better than spending another beautiful evening under the stars. Plan a picnic or fire up the grill and spend a glorious evening with family and friends.

Not sure what to cook? Well, how about …

For starters, wow your friends with something more than delicious. My Summer Rolls. certainly fill that bill. They take a little bit of effort but they are worth it. Besides, you can make them in the morning, cover and serve in the evening. Alternatively, Lettuce Cups with Shrimp & Noodles are wonderful. Prepare everything in advance and let your friends do the assembly.

When it’s time to roll out the grill … How about Grilled Swordfish with Tequila-Lime Butter ? It’s delicious and has a bit of a kick. Serve the fish with my Couscous with Dried Fruit and Pine Nuts and add a spoonful of my Crunchy Slaw with Cilantro, Mint & Peanuts.

For dessert … how about something with chocolate? Something ever so luscious like my Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart or rich and decadent like my Chocolate-Orange Tart.

Have a wonderful weekend! Bon appétit!
