Welcome October Weekend Special

rain_on_the_windowAfter a yearlong drought, it’s going to be a showery weekend. Make the best of the situation by breaking out your pots and pans! There’s a football game on Sunday (go Pats). Why not invite friends over for the game and some tasty tailgate food?

An indoor tailgate party give you lots of options. Here are a few:

Start with a few nibbles. Hopefully, it’s not too late to pick up a couple of ears of corn. You’ll love my Corncakes. Alternatively, give my Roasted Beet & White Bean Hummus a try. Or go old school with my Simple Salsa & Guacamole.

Next, set up a delicious buffet table.

You must try my latest chili. With a hint of Brazil and the Caribbean, you’ll love my Pork & Black Bean Stew with Salsa Verde. I like to serve the stew with a spoonful of basmati rice. Basmati has just a touch of sweetness and it is perfect with the warmth and spice of the stew. Add a salad or slaw or both. Jicama Slaw and/or Caesar Salad would be nice.

For dessert, think grab and go. How about brownies? For a bit of elegance, try my Cheesecake Brownies or Espresso Brownies.

Stay dry, 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.
