Rainy Summer Weekend Special

rainy_day_pleasant_lakeThe dry sunny weather has been great for everyone but not the gardens. The weather gurus are suggesting our winning weather streak will break over the next few days. You could pout or stamp your foot … or head to the cinema and take in a summer blockbuster or quirky indie. It can’t rain nonstop so plan some outdoor time as well – a hike, a game of tennis and maybe a picnic.

Since the weather may be steamy, a picnic is a great idea!

Toast up some pita and slice some veggies and serve them with my tasty Feta Walnut Spread. Add a glass of wine and a few Spicy Olives.

You’ll want a nice salad for the main course. Try my latest creation – Grilled Shrimp & Vegetable Salad. (I’ve set the recipe up for a romantic dinner for two with lots of leftover veggies and Salsa Verde. If you’re feeling more social than romantic, just add some more shrimp. You should have enough veggies and salsa for six people.) You can keep it lean with shrimp and vegetables or add a spoonful of my Couscous with Dried Fruit and Pine Nuts.

When it comes to dessert, there are still strawberries at the local farm stand. How about some berries with my delicious Lavender Infused White Chocolate Crème!

Thundershowers or not, have a great weekend and bon appétit!

What are your plans for the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
