“April showers bring May flowers.” At least that’s how the saying goes. Well down South, April brings more than just inclement weather. With it arrives a storm of baby showers, bridal parties and weddings. And because southerners have never needed an excuse to throw a party, you can guarantee plenty of invitations to arrive at your door.
I usually need a little culinary incentive to attend all of these soirées. The exchanges are quite often familiar ones — a little juicy gossip, the latest news and weather, maybe a game or two. Talk about thrilling! But there is always a pot-of-gold at the end of the “small-talk” rainbow, and that’s good food, and lots of it.
