Well – if yesterday wasn’t wonderful … then I don’t know what is! Summer in May is the best. Not only is it a surprise (even if it happens every year!) but on top of the warm air, you can hear the peepers once the sun goes down.
The weekend promises to be a bit of a mix with some clouds, some sun and some thundershowers. Throw a colorful cloth on the table, find some salsa music on Spotify or Pandora, drag the grill under an overhang and go for it. Saturday is Cinco de Mayo – time to celebrate!
Let’s start with a great appetizer. You will love my Grilled Shrimp with Spicy Peanut Salsa. Add a few raw veggies to dip along with the shrimp. Not enough? You can’t go wrong with my Guacamole and Simple Salsa.
Ready for dinner? Keep that grill going. If you haven’t tried my Grilled Swordfish with Tequila-Lime Butter, now is the perfect time. Serve the swordfish with a delicious mix of Grilled Balsamic Vegetables. Choose any and all of your favorite veggies to throw on the grill. If you like, add a spoonful of Lemony Green Rice.
For dessert, think .. what else but chocolate? A few bites are all you’ll need of my Mexican Chocolate Pots de Crème. Over-the-top delicious and rich, they may just become your new favorite dessert.
