It has been almost 6 months since I started working again in a commercial kitchen. Wow, has the time flown by! Starting off just before the Holidays was awesome, and kept me super busy until January when it feels like I had my first break. If I could bottle the excitement, anticiption, and energy I felt opening I would be a billionaire! It’s a great time to say thank you to all of you who follow my blog, order dinners, or have supported me with catering jobs and special orders galore! Without you, quite simply, it just wouldn’t be as much fun.
Looking ahead is just as exciting, maybe even more so. It is also a great time to tackle some things that I “put on the back burner”, pun intended! One of these ideas is something I have talked and thought about doing for years, catering special parties like Low Country Oyster Roasts, Shrimp Boils, BBQ’s and more. My husband grew up in the SC low country. His gift to the groomsmen in our wedding was an engraved oyster knife, with an oyster roast that followed a few months later. Here it is 14 years later, and we are still having our Oyster roasts on a now bi-annual basis. I must say, together we make a great team and have decided it would be fun, and the time is right, to offer this and other fun ideas, to other people. I am launching a new page on my blog called “Parties & Celebrations” that has more description of these awesome and unique events. Check it out and feel free to spread the word- they are great ideas for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and any other reason to get together and celebrate with food and friends!
I’m also cooking up some great things to help you over the summer. I will be offering a full Freezer Service, so that for weekends away and weeks at the beach you can stock up your cooler before leaving town. No orders needed, just get it when you need it! There will be some Favorites that will stay stocked, such as my popular Tex Mex Pie, Chicken Pie, and Chicken & Broccoli au gratin. I will send out weekly specials, too. Stay tuned for details on this as summer gets closer and in the meantime I will see you on Wednesdays in the kitchen!
So again, thank you for helping me enjoy the best of food and life by cooking for you, it is always my pleasure.
