They’ll be three or four deep at the deli counter at the supermarket. The long line of trucks and SUVs with trailers and boats will create what passes for a traffic jam in Elkins. A constant stream of walkers and runners will pass my house. What’s with all the hustle and bustle? Oh, that’s right; it is Memorial Day Weekend in New Hampshire. The summer people are back.
Memorial Day Weekend is always a busy time with lots to do to get ready for summer. With a mixed bag of rain, clouds and sun, you’ll need to juggle indoor and outdoor chores. When all that prep work is done, reward yourself, family and friends with a delicious dinner.
Get out the grill for the main course. I’ll be grilling lamb this weekend. What about you? Maybe you’d like to try my Grilled Lamb Chops with Lemon-Mint Yogurt Sauce. Lamb not your thing? How about Grilled Swordfish with Olive & Caper Salsa. Lemony Green Rice will be delicious with either. Complete your dinner with a tasty Asparagus Salad with Reduced Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Time for a sweet. You will find both strawberries and rhubarb in the market. If you have not tried my Strawberry-Rhubarb Soup – please do! Or save the Rhubarb for Muffins and try my Strawberry Shortcake with Cardamom Cream. Feel free to add a few blueberries for a patriot dessert of red, white and blue.
Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
