I love September. These last few days have been picture perfect. A little hot for September and a little humid but still beautiful. It’s the perfect weather for a refreshing morning walk and a relaxing hour or two on the beach in the evening.
Heaven forbid you show up at the beach empty handed at cocktail time. No, not just a bottle of wine or a jug of martinis. You’ll need a tasty treat to nibble. Why not give my Savory Parmesan Shortbread with Tomato Jam and/or my Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese Crostini a try?
And how about the rest of the menu?
The evenings are turning cool … the local corn is more than wonderful and it’s a great time for lobster. Put them together for a warm and cozy Lobster-Corn Chowder. If lobster is not your thing, my Chicken & Corn Chowder is a little less fancy but still delicious. Add a salad; something simple like Caesar … but still special with Crunchy Parmesan Croutons or even simpler … how about beautiful heirloom tomatoes. Just slice them up and serve them with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Have a wonderful weekend and bon appétit!
What’s up with you this weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
