It’s A Warm Winter In The Lowcountry
Happy New Year! We are enjoying some warm weather right now in the Lowcountry. It definitely does not seem like January here.
As far as big plans for 2022, we are keeping things simple and enjoying spending time at home. We have our 92 year old father with us during the winter and are keeping ourselves safe and healthy.
Enjoying Being Outside And The Simple Things In Life
We take walks in the park, golf cart rides to our dock on the river and spend some quality time on our front porch. All of our neighbors are so friendly and kind. They stop by for a visit and to catch up on what’s happening in the area.
Last spring we hosted a brunch and decided that this it was a great way to have friends over that does not require a lot of work and fuss.
Having A Brunch Gathering Is A Perfect Way To Entertain
On the menu was some delicious mini quiches, spicy shrimp skewers to serve with our friend’s yummy cheese grits, sour cream coffee cake and some fresh fruit. And of course we had to have some smokey bacon and Bloody Marys.
We decided to make spicy crab quiches and cheddar chive quiches to offer a little variety. The extra bonus was having leftovers for a quick and delicious breakfast the following week. Serving this buffet style makes this fun for everyone to pick what they like to eat and makes it so relaxed for the hosts.
Hopefully, we will find time to have another simple gathering in the next month or so. It would be great if we were able to dine alfresco. A little nice music, good conversation and some delicious food makes for a wonderful gathering.
