Weekly Menu, April 17-23 Southern Style

Why not come South with us? At least for the menu. This week, try:

Shrimp and Grits, perfect for breakfast or dinner!

Harder to do at home, but I’m craving MORE OYSTERS. Why not take shrimp, add an oyster, wrap in bacon, slide onto a skewer and GRILL? You won’t be sorry you did.

Comfort food: The Pioneer Woman’s Chicken & Dumplings

Edna Lewis’s Hoppin’ John – a dish that originated in Charleston

Hoppin John

Sautéed Collard Greens – a quick & easy version

With a few Tall and Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits? Yes, please.

And how about some Coconut Cake for dessert? Mmmmmm….

Enjoy, ya’ll.
