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.

Summer Garden, Fish and Shrimp

We're cooking in Carolina in every way! It's been in the mid 90s and very humid ! And we're still cooking on the grill to keep the kitchen from getting so hot. Last night, everything was grilled: shrimp, corn, squash, green onions, corn on the cob and peppers and everything but the shrimp and onions came from the garden.

Last weekend, my mom brought some vegetables from her garden in Virginia that I don't grow, so I also made a wonderful roasted beet salad with red onions, olives and a garlic sauce to die for!

We are also trying to eat up last years frozen food to make room for this years. We had flounder that my brother caught at the coast that was really good with peas and a fresh salad. Even though the lettuce is bolting it is still pretty and very tasty. We usually have it with a balsamic vinaigrette. Our recipe can be found on the Swank website Swank Recipes

That's it for now!

Eat, drink, love and laugh!
