Summer traditions: Calabash!

1 Comment

Last summer, fried cauliflower and zucchini fritters were the thing. This summer, we decided the big deal was getting fresh fish from our local monger at the Thursday farmers market and frying it up … Calabash-style. And it is SO good. Some weeks we have both moms, some weeks just one. This week, we had Rah-Rah, shrimp and grouper. Then we took watermelon rinds out to my chickens and grabbed some goodies from the garden. It was a great day.

  1. Just loving our Calabash Thursdays in the Meadow. The shrimp are fresh and delicious. While I am not a fish eater I can appreciate all the sides that go with it. Fresh tomatoes with garlic, fresh fried okra, cucumbers and rice (very South Carolina dish – fish and rice). Delicious watermelon and fresh peaches for dessert. Yum!!
