Inspire Me - Sunday Spring dinner
- aussiewonder May 17, 2008 04:10 PM
I'm staying w/ friends tomorrow night and promised to cook them dinner. But I'm feeling terribly uninspired and can't seem to figure out what I want to cook. It doesn't look like great grilling weather, in fact the weatherman says humid and stormy, so I don't think a stew or heavy dish is what I want. I was thinking of a roast pork tenderloin? and salads? but i'm drawing a blank.
I'm hitting the farmer's market in the morning to stock up. Would love ideas or suggestions for something relaltively uncomplicated to make, not overly adventureous (her hubby is not a foodie), that utilizes the best of Spring produce. What would you do?
how about risotto with leeks and asparagus or english peas served with a green salad with beets and blood oranges.
The pork tenderloin sounds good, or maybe saucy ribs slow cooked in the oven or crock pot. ( Would leave you time to visit and they practically cook themselves) Then add a quick sauteed asparagus or a spinach salad with fresh strawberries and a light vinagrette. Risotto sounds good too.
