What's Cooking in Carolina?

Mainly creative menus and recipes (usually healthy) and always from scratch with tips for party planning, theme parties, weddings and decorating tips so you can give swank parties or dinners to delight your guests from a part time caterer, owner/operator of a coming soon Entree Vous, but mainly a cook and eater who grows much of her own food and loves to laugh.

Graduation Party & Peas and New Potatoes

What's cooking in Carolina this week? Well, I would say not much, because I was out of town from Monday through Thursday. I had a small party to cater on Saturday, so I arrived back in town, went shopping, then cooked for a day and a half.

The party was a graduation party. The food was an ecletic mix of interesting flavors, something for everyone; mostly finger foods.

The Menu

Spicy Shrimp on skewers
Jerk Chicken Drummettes

[This is a picture of the chicken souvlaki. It is red from the wine and vinegar marinade. Our Recipe of the Week this week is this recipe, although if you want any of the others, just send us a note and we'll be happy to provide it! for Swank Recipes click here]

Mini Sausage Rolls in Puff Pastry
Mushrooms stuffed with Walnuts and Sundried Tomatoes
Melon and Prosciutto
Salted Almonds
Bruschetta with Toppings: Caprese, Tapenade, Chickpeas with olives, olive oil, hot pepper and rosemary
Grilled veggies
Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce

This is not to say this is all we ate this week. We got our first picking of potatoes, peas and cucumbers from the garden this week and because it has been so cool, we are still getting lettuce. Now I can promise you that there is nothing like eating fresh from the garden! For some reason, the first picking always tastes the best too!
