Steamy Weekend Special

So, you say, this is summer in New Hampshire. Yes, indeed. A little steam, a little heat and maybe a roll of thunder in the evening. As long as I can get to the beach a couple of nights a week, I’m okay with it. How about you?

Pack up the picnic basket, buy a bag of charcoal and head to the water. It’s a good weekend to spend an evening or three on the beach. Here are a few ideas for that picnic basket:

Start with a great dip, some fresh veggies and pita chips. Maybe you’d like to try my Roasted Red Pepper Dip or Baba Ganoush? (That said there is nothing like a ripe, red tomato – fresh off the vine. You will love my Fresh Tomato Crostini.

For the main course … how about … Grilled Shrimp with Salsa de Cacahuate y Chile de Arbol? For a taste of Asia, throw some boneless chicken thighs in my Hoisin Marinade and grill to perfection. Add a couple of salads – my Grilled Zucchini & Feta Salad with Lemony Vinaigrette and Lemon-Herb Quinoa Salad would be perfect.

Now for something sweet. You could take a walk and look for ice cream or bring along a batch of my Peanut-y Chocolate Chip Cookies or Cheesecake Brownies.

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
