Monday Manners: Southern Soups and Stews

Happy Monday, Y’all!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Are y’all ready to have your stomach’s groan for some good Southern cooking?  Well, here’s this week’s edition of Southern Foods, from the wikipedia article I found.  These all look super yummy to me!  Are any of these your favorites?  What’s left off the list, that you like?  My favorites are she-crab soup and Frogmore stew.  YUM!  Football season always gives all of our friends plenty of reasons to cook Frogmore stew.  The more people, the better!

Southern Soups and Stews

  • Étouffée – a very thick stew made of crawfish or chicken and sausage, okra and roux served over rice
  • Low Country boil – any of several varieties (also known in some areas as a “bog”)
    • Frogmore Stew – made with sausage, corn, crabs, and shrimp; popular in coastal South Carolina, aka Seafood Muddle (shown below)
  •  She-crab soup – mainly served in the area around Charleston, South Carolina from Atlantic crabs

And the best part about all of this food?  Washing it down with a glass of this…sugary sweet, please?
