What's Cooking This Weekend?

Weekend of May 17-18, 2008

It's a cool, rainy weekend here - what's it like where you are? This has us in the mood for bistro food and pizza - something hot. But we're still determined to make it to the farmer's market tomorrow morning for fresh spring vegetables and a bunch of flowers for the table. Here are a few more good projects from the site this week; what are you eating and cooking this weekend?

• Small Cool 2008 winners are announced - what do you think of their kitchens?

Strawberry pie, soups and "bacon and eggs" are looking good right now.

• If it warms up a little we're drinking Pimm's Cup this weekend.

• Are you doing any gardening this spring?

• Are you throwing a party to celebrate the end of the Cure? Check out these timing tips.

• This week we learned that hanging bags are good for growing strawberries and tomatoes.

• Time for weekend breakfast? This Zucchini and Asparagus Strata looks absolutely delicious.

• Need a quicker breakfast? Try these dried fig and nut bars - good for breakfast on the go.

• If we buy wine this weekend we don't care that the weather is awful - we're getting a rosé

• Another thing to look for at the Greenmarket: shiso!
