In the words of Mark Twain, “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.” Over the past week or two, we enjoyed(?) a typical January. Snow. Blistering cold. Wind. Drenching rain. More wind. More cold. Snow again. Most moms are going a little crazy with all the snow days. (My only advice – push the kids out the backdoor and tell them to build a snowman, go sledding or stomp around in snowshoes.)
When the weekend comes, enjoy a great day of sledding, skiing or snowshoeing. At the end of the day, kids and adults will both enjoy an Asian inspired feast! Here are a few suggestions to warm up at the end of the day:
Warm up by the fire with a mug of Mulled Cider. If you like, add a shot of rum for the grownup, try some warm sake or open a bottle of wine. For nibbling, try my Peanut-Sesame Dipping Sauce with fresh veggies and shrimp or my Lettuce Cups with Shrimp & Noodles. (If it seems like the evening is going to be too noodle-y, Lettuce Cups with Shrimp but no Noodles will be delicious. If everyone is chilled to the bone, enjoy tiny cups of my Sweet Potato & Red Lentil Soup.
Have fun, stay warm and bon appétit!
