Still Summer Weekend Special

Pleasant Lake cloudsIf you are holding onto summer with brute force and white knuckles, you can relax. The equinox and official start to fall will not be here for another couple of weeks. Last week’s heat wave proved it, it’s still summer. Even if clouds and showers hide the sun for a good bit of the weekend.

Anyway, it will be a good weekend for a movie or invite friends over to watch football. Or forget about football, hang out in the kitchen and make pickles.

When it comes to dinner, enjoy a bit of cozy, comfort food. Here are a few ideas:

To start, pick up some fresh eggplant in the farmers’ market and give my Baba Ganoush or Caponata a try. Add a bowl of Roasted Almonds and another of Spicy Olives.

And for dessert? Stick with the warm and cozy theme. The first local apples are in the market and everyone but everyone loves Apple Crisp. Or go with cool, creamy and chocolaty and give my Chocolate Panna Cotta a go.

Have a great weekend, stay dry and bon appétit!
