Enjoy the Summer Weekend Special

This weekend, a lot of people will be packing up and heading home after a week’s vacation. Isn’t it nice when a long weekend grows into a week!?! Isn’t it even nicer when you live in paradise?

Before you head back to the city or the burbs, be sure to indulge in one last cookout. Here are a few ideas!

Kick things off with a lovely rosé or craft beer and a few of your favorite appetizers. When I lived in Switzerland, rosé was always my summer wine of choice. In the past few years, New Hampshire’s State Liquor Stores have started to carry some decent Provencal rosés.

Anyway, on to appetizers! Start with a dip or two. Both my Baba Ganoush and Roasted Beet & White Bean Hummus are delicious. Serve them with fresh veggies and pita chips.

Next, enjoy my latest favorite salad. The fresh, local tomatoes are wonderful and I can’t get enough Tomato & Burrata Salad with Grilled Bread.

For the main course, how about Grilled Chicken with Shallots & New Potatoes.

For dessert … stay cool with Brown Sugar Yogurt Gelato. Since the season is short, smother it with fresh, local strawberries.

Happy summer – have a great weekend and bon appétit!
