Thaw to Freeze – We Love January (NOT) Special

pl_winter_01That’s the thing about January. One day its’ (relatively) warm and raining. The next it’s bright, sunny and arctic cold. This weekend, the cold creeps in again. So bundle up, strap on the skis or snowshoes and do your best to get out in the fresh air.

Afterwards, reward yourself with a delicious dinner with a few of your favorite people. Here are a few suggestions:

Start the evening with a delicious eggplant dip. Try my Baba Ganoush or Caponata with wedges pf warm pita bread or pita chips.

Sit down to the table with a fabulous salad. It’s probably been awhile (Thanksgiving? Halloween?) since you enjoyed my Mixed Greens with Warm Roasted Squash. Why not put it on the menu this weekend?

Next, cook up one of those family night classics. After all, home is the place we treat friends like family and family like friends. I’ve taken a few shortcuts and hope you’ll love my easy version of the Italian classic Tortellini en Brodo con Spinaci.

Stay with that homey theme through dessert. Think warm apples and spicy cinnamon. They may be homey but both my Apple Bread Pudding and Mini Tarte Tatin are delicious. Take your pick!

Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
