Every year on Memorial Day, my sister and I get together to have a big cookout. It’s usually at my sister’s house, but since we just moved (AND since we just set up our back deck for entertaining), we wanted to have the family over to OUR house for a big ol’ cookout.
Now, John and I are USUALLY big fans of burgers (as I have lamented before), but this year we wanted to do something different. I busted out my southern cookbook and went searching and found the PERFECT recipe for a family Memorial Day cookout. A low-country boil! I used to make low-country boils a bunch back in the day and hadn’t had a good one in a while… I altered the recipe a little bit (I think there are even similar ones to this floating out there… it’s relatively easy and simple!), but it turned out DELICIOUS.
We had some friends stop by to visit for a minute… My friend Kristin had made Lilly and her daughter Lorelei matching dresses. How cute are they? Lorelei is not having the picture! haha! This cracks me up!
So my sister, my Aunt Deborah, my nephew Kyle, and my mother-in-law all joined us for the cookout. My nephew Kyle has gotten SO big! If you’ve been following my blog for a while you might remember him from when he was little… He’s HUGE now! And he LOVES his cousin Lilly!
Anyway. It was a great day!
Let’s get to the recipe, because I know that’s what you’re here for:
