Another Labor Day Weekend Special

And just like that … it’s Labor Day Weekend. The time certainly passed at warp speed. It will be a busy weekend – with last minute hikes and bike rides as well as end of summer chores.

Make sure you save some time for a cookout with friends and family. If you aren’t sure what to throw on the grill this year … I’ve got a few suggestions for a delicious cookout.

Start the evening with appetizers loaded with fresh from farm produce. You will love the simplicity of my Fresh Tomato Crostini. Chip and salsa lovers with flip for my Grilled Corn, Black Bean & Avocado Salsa.

For fabulous summer salad, try my Green Bean Salad with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta. Fresh, local green beans are a treat you will miss all winter long.

Now for the main course. How about my Citrus & Spice Grilled Chicken? It is delicious. If your cookout is at home on the deck, add a spoonful of my Cheesy Polenta with Fresh Corn. If you’re picnic-ing in the park or on a beach go with my Couscous with Dried Fruit and Pine Nuts.

For dessert, local blueberries are calling. Try my Almost Nana Nye’s Blueberry Cake. If you like, add a few candles and raise your glass to toast … what would be my mom’s eighty-ninth birthday.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend. Bon appétit!
