Changing up things for the menu planning! Just to keep you on your toes!
When we lived in Little Rock, I called my kitchen the Rainwood Kitchen because we lived on Rainwood Road and it sounded like a cool restaurant name. But, I don’t like the sound of our street here in Marietta in line of a kitchen name. But, I thought through this name for a little while and really like The Charming South Kitchen. I am from the south, born and raised in central Florida, moved to North Florida, then made my way to North Carolina for over a decade, with just a few years in Louisville, then to Little Rock, now back to Georgia. Although I love to travel and love seeing the world – I don’t know if I will ever live outside the south. I love everything about the south: the beach, the weather, the people, the slow pace of life, the friendliness of strangers.
So, I wanted to bring that out in my food and what I cook for our family and those who eat at our table. Therefore – the Charming South Kitchen. I cook a lot of non-southern foods – but the south is now a melting pot – and so it my kitchen!
And this week, I’ll be writing a post about how I menu plan. Stay tuned!
