Mostly Sunny Weekend Special

lupin_poppies_02It looks like we are in for a mostly-sunny almost summer weekend. It promises to be a good weekend for outside activities, including dinner on the porch or deck. This reminds me, the porch furniture is covered with a fine coat of yellowy pollen. One more thing for my Saturday morning to-do list!

Once the work (or play!) is done … it’s time to relax with friends and family. But, what to serve? Here are a few ideas:

Keep it simple with a few quick treats to nibble. My Rosemary Cashews are addictive. Add some White Bean Hummus or Tapenade with fresh veggies and a few pita chips and you’ve got it covered.

Keep it healthy with a dinner of super foods. My Grilled Salmon with Lemon-Herb Quinoa Salad is delicious plus you can make it up in the morning if you’ve got a busy afternoon of tennis or hiking or gardening planned. Add a salad of Mixed Greens with Grilled Asparagus, Cucumber & Avocado. Yum!

For dessert, stay in easy mode. You can’t go wrong with ice cream and a fabulous sauce or two. Try my decadent Death by Chocolate Sauce or amazing Maple Sauce or both.

Enjoy the sunshine and the weekend. Bon appétit!
