Another Dreary Weekend Special

Good golly Miss Molly … will it never end. Yes, indeed it looks like another dreary weekend. Although it might not actually rain until Monday, partly cloudy and very cloudy are in the forecast. Forget May flowers, it’s June already. In some places, it is already summer.

Alright, if you can’t play in the sun, you might as well invite family and friends around for a delicious dinner. How about an evening inspired by the sunny Mediterranean?

Get out the retsina or ouzo and try your hand at my Crostini with Cucumber, Radish & Feta or Crostini with Red Pepper Tzatziki & Greek Salad. If you want to really impress, then whip up a batch of my Spanakopita Triangles.

Assuming no downpours, you’ll need the grill again for the main course. I hope that your friends and family enjoy my Grilled Lamb with Fresh Mint as much as mine did the other night. If it’s raining or you don’t want to deal with the grill, try my Chicken with Onions & Olives or Lemon Roasted Chicken Thighs. Serve any and all of the above with my Lemony Green Rice or Israeli Couscous. Complete your dinner with Grilled Ratatouille Stacks.

Save room for a sweet. I can’t help but go for strawberries this time of year. While we are still waiting for local berries, you can always make due with what’s in the market from California or New Jersey. Try my Fresh Berries with Creamy Lime Custard or Panna Cotta with Strawberries.

Stay dry and have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
