Its finally here, the last Shabbat of the Summer season and Labor Day weekend. Time to fire up the grill and pour yourself a fruity cocktail to enjoy one last time until next year. Make a toast to end of Summer with my recipe for Strawberry Lemonade Martinis.
I love asparagus – grilled, roasted, blanched, sprinkled with feta…but I had never seen a recipe quite like this one for Smoky Glazed Asparagus. This seems like an ideal side dish for a BBQ themed Shabbat dinner.
Barbecued chicken and ribs – can you imagine a more decadent way to finish off this summer!? Try this Asian inspired BBQ’d Sesame Chicken from The Food Yenta, and why not also serve some Asian Style Short Ribs, recipe from The Kosher Foodies.
Two meats – why not two desserts too! Pina Coladas aren’t just for fruity drinks, they are also for dessert with these Pina Colada Popsicles from Couldn’t Be Pareve. Take advantage of the bounty of fresh fruit and whip up David Lebovitz’s recipe for Angel Food Cake to serve alongside – cut up some fresh berries and peaches, sprinkle with 1 tsp of sugar and the juice from half a lemon squeezed on top.
Happy cooking, Shabbat Shalom and Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!
