The Low Country Boil from our Vacation Plan

Our vacation menu is back! We’ve got 7 dinners planned out for you that serve up 12 people. You can cut it in half or double it depending on how many families or people you have with you on your vacation. Right now, when you sign up for eMeals you get the vacation menu for free! Our members already have it on their members page.

One of the meals on our vacation plan is our ever-popular Low Country Boil. This meal is an eMeals classic. It is not only a dinner but a fun event for everyone. If you’ve never had it, you MUST try it! Ask your meat man at the grocer to sell you an 8 foot run of butcher paper to cover a picnic table. Dump all your cooked shrimp, kielbasa, onions, corn on the cobb and potatoes down the middle of your table. Serve with sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, and cocktail sauce. Serve some hot cornbread and have some bowls on the table for discarded shrimp shells. Oh! And don’t forget the napkins! This is a messy good time for everyone to enjoy!
