I love August. The heavy heat and steamy humidity slip away. You might need a sweater first thing in the morning and again after dinner but the days are warm and dry – just heavenly. It’s the perfect weather for a hike up Mount Kearsarge or a bike ride to nowhere and back again.
Even if you do need a sweater, you can still enjoy an evening cookout. You won’t want to miss the moon rise. It’s a full moon tonight and the weekend promises clear skies.
Here are a few suggestions for a delicious late summer dinner in the moonlight:
When you’re ready for dinner – how about swordfish on the grill? My Grilled Swordfish with Olive & Caper Salsa is a great choice. Add some Israeli Couscous and a great salad. The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye and the tomatoes are phenomenal so you must give my Heirloom Tomato Salad with Grilled Corn, Cucumber & Feta a taste.
It’s August and anything blueberry is a New England tradition. You can pick your own at a local farm or pick up a couple of pints at the farmers’ market for a fabulous dessert. Go old school with Bluebree Grunt or a bit more updated with Blueberry Crostata. While you’re at it, how about a batch of Blueberry Muffins for Sunday morning.
Have a wonderful weekend and bon appétit!
What are your plans for the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
