Recipe of the month

Mary’s Bruschetta

(as requested at our Martini Happy Hour)

1 loaf of French Bread

8 to 10 Roma Tomatoes (I remove most seeds)

1or 2 cloves  of Minced Garlic …depending on your taste. (Roasted garlic is great with this)

¼ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Basil to taste (I use a lot)

Salt to taste (I use sea salt)

Freshly ground Black pepper to taste.

    Place chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, EVOO, Basil, salt and Pepper in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight. One hour before serving, remove tomato mixture from refrigerator to bring to room temperature.

Thinly slice French bread, sprinkle with olive oil and place in oven at 400 degrees about 5 minutes or until lightly brown. Spoon mixture on to toasted bread and enjoy. Great appetizer!

Sandlappers attend Low Country Parrothead Club Sunset Cruise

   July 26th…Eleven Sandlappers made the trek to Mount Pleasant to board a catamaran cruise sponsored by the LCPHC. We sailed out of Shem Creek and were treated to Shrimp, Crab dip, salsa and all the beer we could drink at a price of 20.00 per person! The sunset was beautiful and members of the Low Country Club were very hospitable.
