What a beautiful day! Let’s hope it lasts through the weekend so we can continue to live the outdoor life. That’s what summer is all about … sun, sports and celebrations, at least on the weekends. So what’s up with you? Golf or tennis, sand castles and waterskiing, shopping at the farmers’ market and dancing at the bandstand?
We New Englanders have a long tradition of summer evenings at the bandstand. There are three within minutes of my house most summer weekends. If you’re tied up with other plans on Saturday, well, there’s always Friday and Sunday night. A picnic and some toe-tapping is a great way to spend a summer evening. That said, you’ll need a picnic.
To start you evening of delicious, toe-tapping fun, think tomato … or is it tomahto? I can’t think of a better way to start the evening than locally grown tomatoes. You’ll be in heaven with my Bruschetta with Fresh Tomatoes, Goat Cheese & Pesto Oil . Next dish up some tasty Couscous Salad with Grilled Vegetables and top the salad with my Grilled Shrimp.
What’s your favorite portable dessert. I’m guessing brownies top your list. Looking for a bit of change, give my rich and oh so wonderful Cheesecake Brownies a try.
Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
What are you planning for the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
