Thanksgiving Blog - Our Favorite Southern Traditions
For those who were raised in the south - specifically along the Carolina coast, Thanksgiving traditions and menus may be a little different than those from another area of the country. In the south we enjoy the average 75 degree weather, football, southern comfort food, local seafood, the river and the beach.
Savor your favorite holiday recipes and traditions (and incorporate some new ones!) as you transition to life along the Carolina coast. Below are some of our favorite family meals and traditions - we welcome you to see for yourself how much we enjoy the holidays in RiverLights.
On the Dinner Menu:
- Oyster Pie - It's Delicious
