I'm feeding 6 people and my idea is to order 12 4 oz. crabcakes from G&M, cheese grits and collards as side dishes with some cornbread. Pecan and some other pie for dessert. I'm trying to get away from the traditional Christmas dinner this year. Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions!

Hmmm, sounds good. I think a cup of soup would be nice, chowda?

This sounds really good. I love crab cakes! I might add a sauce of some sort on the side, maybe remoulade, for the crab cakes. And something fresh, maybe a nice fruit salad. I am thinking classic southern ambrosia - sliced oranges with a drop or two of Grand Marnier and sprinkled with coconut.

Oh ... and definitely honey butter for the cornbread. It's Christmas after all

Some blackeyed peas; bannana pudding or apple cobbler instead of the second pie?

You read my mind. I almost edited my first post to ask about a sauce for the cakes. Thanks!

She crab soup or oyster stew would be nice, and very easy to make. Maybe scollops wrapped in bacon as an app, also easy. Chow Jim
