January Martini Night

I know most of you are still still attempting to stay true to those resolutions you made three weeks ago – counting calories and trying to limit your big nights out. And in most cases, I’m with you – I had a wild holiday season and am in need of some down time, too. But, the high is 39 today in Greensboro and we were in need of a good meal and strong cocktail to warm us up. There is only so much hot yoga!

I had some close friends over at the last minute for dinner on Saturday night. I’m believer that there is always something to celebrate and put together a nice meal from ingredients from the Greensboro Farmer’s Curb Market (bread, beets and yellow cauliflower), the Fresh Market and the Super G Mart (which has a very nice and inexpensive selection of mushrooms). We indulged probably too much for an odd January – but isn’t that what makes life so fun?

I’m excited to post four new recipes this week – so stay tuned! These are all seasonal and delicious for your next gathering during these very cold months ahead.

  • Andy’s Dirty Martinis
