It’s been a funny week. More than ever we have been able to quip and share a favorite New England saying, if you don’t like the weather, well, just wait a few minutes. To that end, we had a microburst crashed through town on Sunday evening. Rain was pounding and trees were flying. Thankfully, it only lasted a few minutes and I did not lose power. Yesterday, a threatening sky sent me racing home. On the way, I could see a line of heavy rain and wind make its way up the lake. I made it home in time to close the skylights. (But wasn’t so lucky a few other times.)
It looks like we may have more of the same for the next few days. Brilliant sun followed by raucous thunderstorms and then sunny again. Enjoy plenty of time outdoors – including (hopefully) a cookout – but be prepared to run for cover.
So what about that cookout?
Start with a trip to the Farmers’ Market. Then roll out the grill for some delicious Caponata Crostini. Enjoy a glass a wine while you nibble. When you’re ready, throw some chicken on the grill but make sure you marinate it first. Try my Hint of Asia Marinade and/or Barbecue Sauce. Serve the chicken with my Spicy Cucumber & Radish Salad for a light and bright supper.
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.
