Winter Is Back Weekend Special

buoys_snow_02March comes in like a lion. This year is no exception. After a delightful taste of spring the cold and wind is back. With any bit of luck, there will be enough sun to encourage all of us out the door for a little skiing, snowshoeing or a walk around the lake. Even if you end up at the gym, do try to get some exercise.

A little cooking might also be in order. Call a few friends and invite them over for a delicious dinner or suggest a potluck. Here are a few suggestions:

Let the wind blow while you cozy up to the fire with a glass of wine. Invite your friends help themselves to Artichoke Crostini or Zucchini Pancakes with Tapenade.

When you are ready to gather around the table, think colorful with a great salad. You and your friends will love my Radicchio, Fennel, and Arugula Salad. If you’d prefer cozy soup to start, give my Homemade Tomato Soup a try.

Follow up with my current favorite pasta. As you know, I have a new favorite at least two or three times a year! Fickle or not, this one is wonderful. If not this weekend, try my Spaghetti with Cauliflower & Olives soon. For a delicious alternative, consider my Creamy Polenta with Mushroom & Kale Ragù.

End the evening on a sweet note. You earned it on the slopes or gym! Perhaps you’ll think spring and bake a Lemon Tart. If you’re short on time, then give my Bananas Foster a try.

Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
