In my neighborhood, Memorial Day Weekend is a busy few days. A lot of the houses up and down my street belong to summer people. They bide their time. They are only here when days are warm and the sun shines. A few come up to ski in winter but they are still summer people.
This weekend they will all be around to sweep the cottage, put the boat in the water and maybe, just maybe, take a swim in the ice cold lake.
Mixed with all the hustle and bustle will be a ton of good cheer. Who doesn’t love to be in New Hampshire? … even if the black flies are as thick as thieves. Anyway, if you play your cards right you may get invited to a cookout. So, get out your favorite recipes, make a list, head to the supermarket and be ready for fun.
Maybe you’d rather bring a salad or a side dish … with asparagus of course.
You can’t lose with my Grilled Asparagus with Lemony Tarragon Butter Sauce (it’s delicious at room temperature) or Mixed Greens with Grilled Asparagus, Cucumber & Avocado or Asparagus Salad with Reduced Balsamic Vinaigrette.
No, then, I guess you’d rather bring a sweet treat:
Rhubarb is in season, so, why not try my Ginger Shortcakes with Rhubarb Compote or Rhubarb Crumb Cake? Want something patriotic for Memorial Day … how about Berry Flag Cake? When all else underwhelms you, bring a batch of the world’s best brownies … Espresso Brownies.
Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
