Wednesday's Weekly Menu

I'm trying to resurrect the weekly menu post I used to do like Christie, Margaret, and Kate.  I love being able to scour other's meal plans for inspiration or great ideas and look back at my own blog to see what's been cooking!   Here's what's been had and what's set to be had at our house this week:

Sunday:  Crab Cakes with Grits, Shredded Zucchini, and Roasted Tomatoes

My in-laws came into town Sunday night to take us to supper, and we ended up having them over to our house for dinner.  Sometimes, its so much easier to stay in than go out!  Lash and I went crabbing Sunday morning, and were able to whip up some crab cakes last minute for supper and served with grits and some of my favorite veggies.  This has got to be one of my favorite comfort meals.  My mom's crab cake recipe is fabulous- I will post the recipe soon!

Monday: Crab Nachos

A repeat dish inspired by Pawley's Island's Chive Blossom, but it is always a winner.  I loaded the tortilla chips with cheddar and monterry jack with tons of fresh veggies- julienned zucchini, corn, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions- and topped with the secret and key ingredients- a diced mango and avocado (or gauc) with a dash of lime and orange juice.  We inhaled this at an embarassing speed.

Wednesday: Shrimp and Corn Pie from the Kudzu Bakery with Roasted Asparagus

I'm taking a night off and pulling out a shrimp and corn pie from the freezer!  I can't wait for the Kudzu Bakery to open in Mount Pleasant.  It's always a stop whenever I pass through Georgetown- everything from their sandwiches, cookies, cakes (esp red velvet), special cheeses, and pies- its all fabulous!  I wish I could find a recipe for this shrimp and corn pie because it is so delicious.

Thursday: Country Fried Steak, Rice and Gravy, and Green Beans

Per my man's request! It's hard to admit this calorie bomb is on the weekly meal plan, but I feel like we've eaten okay all week so one night of glutony won't kill us.  I hope.

Weekends:  I never plan out meals for the weekend... Who knows where we will be and what we will be doing.. Plus, we love to treat ourselves out for a meal or two or just fly by the seat of our pants and cook what inspires us.

What's going on in your kitchen?


  1. Their shrimp and corn pie is sooo delicious! I have wanted the recipe too, but then I think how wonderful it is to be able to pull something so good from the freezer during a busy week when there is no time to cook. Enjoy it :)

  2. The Chive Blossom nachos might be the best thing they have, and that is SAYING something! Love that place! Can't wait to try and re-create...
