Recipe of the Month

I thought I'd try something new with this. I love to share recipes, try new ones, and hear other's "substitutes" in recipes. I will share a recipe with you and if you make this recipe already, will you share what you do differently with yours?

Wow, can you believe it's December already? Good grief, seems like it was just Christmas yesterday! (inside joke here!) Anyway, I don't know about you, but for me, having turkey and all those fixin's once a year is enough more me. So, we started a new tradition about 4 or 5 years ago in our house and we eat Low Country Boil. Keeping us in a southern state of mind and so super easy to make!

Low Country boil:

12 small frozen ears of corn (we get the extra, super sweet kind)
3 lbs of new red potatoes, cut into quarters
1-2 lbs shrimp (depending on your liking of it)
2 lbs smoked sausage ropes, cut into slices
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp old bay seasoning
2 tbsp kosher salt
1 gallon water

Combine water, salt, old bay, and garlic in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and continue boiling for about 15-20 minutes. Add the sausage and continue boiling for 5 more minutes. Add the frozen corn and continue boiling for another 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and boil for 3 more minutes. Drain water off and serve in bowls, in a large flat dish, or dump on a table cloth in the middle of the table for a fun free-for-all.
