Beaufort Stew

Every year, my family travels to Hilton Head Island for a week of sun, sand and family. We’ve been doing this every single year since I was born and every year, Beaufort Stew is an essential dinner.

You gather the entire family around the table and lay out a bunch of old newspapers out. Then, you dump the whole batch of stew in the middle of the table and let the feast begin!

Don’t forget your ketchup, cocktail sauce and butter. We also love adding a side of cheesy jalapeño corn bread to the table! OMG…it’s so good!

Do you and your family have any summer traditions?

Once dinner is over, we usually gather around for a family game of Uno and even watch a scientific documentary. Yeah, we’re a bunch of geeks. My favorite documentaries are the ones like Planet Earth or Blue Planet. I just love the beautiful footage of nature! Thankfully, Netflix is home to loads of documentaries. My recent favorites are:
