At the lake this past Saturday afternoon, my daughters asked me what we were having for dinner. “Oh, I’m making low country boil,” I said. They looked at each other, smirked, looked back at me, and said (in a teenage tone you might be familiar with), “like seriously, mom?” And I said (slowly, in a confused mom tone which you might also recognize), “yeeeeeaaaaah … why?” Again, they looked at each other and back at me like I was a total whack job and said,
“WE’VE HAD THAT THREE WEEKENDS IN A ROW!”
That can’t possibly be, I said. I know I’ve made lots and lots of different dinners like this barbecued chicken and these cheeseburgers and this Chinese chopped salad and … and … while I was rattling off the list of other foods I’ve whipped up and served with a smile, they proceeded to reference (practically with exact dates) all of the times I’ve made LCB this summer. They’ve maxed out on it. I’ve officially wrecked them for my favorite summer meal.
So in addition to promising you all that I wouldn’t mention Cobb Salads here again for a good long time, I’ve pledged a solemn oath to the DamFam that they won’t see LCB at all until June 2014 at the very earliest.
Here’s what we’re having this week. I ran it past everyone here and it all got approved.
I know for a fact that I haven’t mentioned these fabulous Shrimp & Corn Cakes with Basil Jalapeno Tartar Sauce in at least a year. We had them when company was here for dinner on Sunday night and I had forgotten about how easily they come together and what a great impression they make. Make them as an entrée, or form the mixture into smaller cakes for an appetizer. Just make them sometime soon, you won’t be sorry! Look for sale Sendik’s Colossal Raw Clean Shrimp, and fresh sweet corn.
I’m also certain I haven’t brought up these yummy Eggplant Stacks with Tomatoes and Parmesan since I first wrote about them two summers ago. This is a fun version of classic Eggplant Parmigiana and a nice option for a meatless entree. Look for sale eggplant, Belgioioso Fresh Mozzarella Balls, and Kraft Grated Parmesan.
Lastly, my high schoolers are both running a ton once again and lately can never seem to work enough carbs into their diets. My favorite French Bread Pizzas are the perfect kid friendly, hungry athlete food. I’ll be making mine with the sale Sendik’s Ciabatta Rolls (feel free to use French Baguettes if you like), Pastorelli Pizza Sauce, and Shurfresh Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
