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.

What's cooking in Carolina this week?

We've had guests for a few days, our really, really good friends from Winston Salem. Monday night we had coconut shrimp with a lime dressing. .

Tuesday night we had tapas:

Sesame Crackers with Seared Tuna and Wasabe Cream

Lentil Salad with Red Peppers, Feta and Mint

Toasted Bread topped with White Beans and Bitter Greens

Buttery Sauted Cabbage with Chorizo

Potato Tortilla

Chocolate Hazelnut Fondue with Strawberries and Pineapple

For breakfast we made crepes: Sauted chorizo with onion, garlic, pepper, cilantro, eggs and cheese topped with guacamole and fresh strawberry and pineapple topped with powdered sugar and some of the left over chocolate fondue. Yummy!

Was there an ingredient that got used in multiple dishes? You betcha! Garlic! Garlic was in the Lentil Salad, the white beans, the bitter greens, the cabbage with chorizo and the breakfast crepe! Who cares about garlic breath as long as everyone's eating!

I am submitting this for this weekend's Weekend Herb Blogging hosted here! Come back on Monday for the roundup and check out our recipes atSwank Recipes

See ya after the round-up! Wish me luck!
