A Soggy Weekend Special

PL_Snow_01More snow, sleet, rain and fog in the forecast for Saturday. Cheer up! Technically, it’s spring and Sunday promises sunshine. (Let’s hope that whoever is in charge delivers.) A gray Saturday is a great excuse to hang out in the kitchen.

Invite your beset buds over to share the results. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Think warm and sunny when it comes to appetizers. Start the evening with one of my favorites, Baba Ganoush or Caponata. Serve either with warm pita.

To the table for a salad! Roasted vegetables go great with greens. Give my Roasted Cauliflower, Radicchio & Arugula Salad or just as delicious Mixed Greens with Warm Roasted Squash.

Moving on, how about Harira, cozy Middle Eastern soup with chicken, chickpeas and lentils. Too spicy? then try a New England favorite – Lobster-Corn Chowder. Yes, lobster is a bit pricey these days. Maybe everyone’s favorite, Four Cheese Lasagna Bolognese with Spinach, would be a better bet,

I’ve got the perfect dessert for this weather. Since it’s mud season, what could be better than New Hampshire Mud Pie. Want another option? How about Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart?

Have a great evening and bon appétit!

What are your plans for the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
