As I said earlier this week, this political season has been particularly ugly. Last weekend, I hunkered down, wrote my column for Parenting NH and whipped up a big batch of Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. It was raining and the news was as grim as the weather.
Maybe you are inviting friends in this weekend or going out to a potluck. It could be you are laying low and spending the weekend at home with family. Whatever your plans, think comfort food when it comes to dinner:
For quick and easy comfort, you can’t beat my Creamy Polenta with Mushroom & Kale Ragù.
For elegant comfort, how about Lobster-Corn Chowder?
For absolutely luscious and keeping busy for a good part of the afternoon, try your hand at my Butternut Squash Lasagna.
For a bit more exotic, travel to warm and dry North Africa and stir up my Moroccan Chicken with Green Olives & Preserved Lemon with Couscous with Dried Fruit and Pine Nuts.
For old school New England, it’s got to be an Old Fashioned Pot Roast.
Have a cozy weekend and bon appétit!
What’s up with you for the weekend? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
