We’ve lived here for six years and my in-laws visit at least twice a year. This week, my brother-in-law and his family will also be joining in on the fun. I’ve learned that when my relatives are in town, I can just forget about having a menu plan. I’ve learned it’s better to just have a vague idea of what I can prepare than an actual plan. Seeing family is well worth that inconvenience and sometimes we just have to learn to go along to get along.
What do you do when company arrives?
Items I will suggest as possibilities, there will be six adults and five children:
- Lowcountry Boil (aka Frogmore or Beaufort stew) it’s a boiled dinner of sausage, onion, corn on the cob, potatoes, and shrimp.
- Pulled Pork
None of these are too labor intensive and two utilize the crock pot. The obstacle, in my opinion, is having the right amount of meat thawed at the right time.
Tell me, what’s on your menu plan this week?
