Not only was Tuesday International Women’s Day but March is Women’s History Month. This weekend is a natural for a Girls’ Night Out. Get ready for good food, good wine and great conversation. Here are a few suggestions of what to cook:
Start with a few great nibbles. Think Mediterranean with Steamed Artichokes with Bagna Cauda or Warm Lemon-Garlic Sauce, a few Spicy Olives
and Roasted Almonds.
Next up, delicious seafood sounds good. A nice piece of salmon is perfect for a group. Give my Lemon Roasted Salmon with Beurre Blanc a try. Serve the salmon with a spoonful each of Whole Grain Pilaf and Broccoli Puree. Or, keep it cozy and enjoy my Creole Shrimp with Cheesy Grits.
End the evening with a creamy and oh so delicious treat. You and your friends will love my Panna Cotta with Strawberries. If you are chocolate fanatics, try my Chocolate Panna Cotta instead. Then again, it’s maple sugaring season. Perhaps you’d like to celebrate with my Maple Mousse with Apple Compote.
(I won’t tell if you don’t but this menu will probably work for men too!)
Have fun! Bon appétit!
What are your plans for this weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
