We say goodbye to April on Sunday and give three cheers for the merry month of May.
In spite of the surprise snowstorm on Tuesday, the first of May means that it really, finally is spring. Roll out the grill and enjoy the first cookout of the season.
Uh oh – spring or not, it looks like the first of May will be a washout. Not a problem … just move your cookout to Saturday. Hooray, hooray, the thirtieth of April doesn’t rhyme but you can still have a good time!
Next, sit down to a salad. Since you are getting out the grill, why not try my Mixed Greens with Grilled Asparagus, Cucumber & Avocado. On the other hand, my Radicchio, Fennel, and Arugula Salad is also very good.
What about the main course? How about chops? Lamb or pork, take your choice! I’m partial to my Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon-Mint Yogurt Sauce but my dad is a big fan of my Grilled Mustard Pork Chops. Either way, serve the chops with a spoonful of my Quinoa Salad and a few slices of my Grilled Zucchini.
Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
What are you cooking this weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
