It’s a Spring Weekend Special

crocusThe weather news is promising a typical spring weekend. Typical New Hampshire that is. There will be some clouds, some rain and some sun. A topsy-turvy mix, all promising to lead to May flowers.

After ducking the raindrops and reveling in the sunshine, why not get together with a few friends. If you are lucky, some of that sunshine might come at the end of the day. Who knows, you might be able to enjoy the first of the season cocktails-on-the-deck! Wouldn’t that be nice.

Keep it casual. After all, it is mud season. Let jeans and sneakers rule the evening. Start with a few quick and easy appetizers to nibble with a glass of wine or beer. For quick and easy you can’t beat Smoked Salmon Mousse. Unless you can raid your refrigerator and find some Savory Fig Jam. Serve the jam with a piece of cheese – brie is nice – on artisanal crackers. Add a few nuts, Roasted Almonds sound good, and the hors d’oeuvres are done.

So what’s for dinner? How about Calzones with Marinara Sauce. Piping hot from the oven, they are better than any takeout. Round out your main course with Rainbow Salad and Black Olive Vinaigrette. Sounds good to me!

And for a sweet finish? If dinner is Italian, then dessert should be too. Panna Cotta with Strawberries or Chocolate Panna Cotta sound delicious.

Have a lovely weekend and bon appétit!
