Moving? Tired? HUNGRY?

During the hustle and bustle of a stressful move, preparing dinner almost never makes the top of a priority list (and let's be honest, most of us won't look like the spotlessly clean and smiling family pictured above). Moving is HARD WORK. Between unpacking all your pots and pans and making sure none of your china was broken along the way, who has time for anything other than ordering a pizza? Now with these easy pan-free recipes, YOU DO! All of the following recipes are fast, pan-free, and EASY clean-up (for added convenience, make sure you pick up some paper plates and plastic cutlery at the grocery store)!

Divide broccoli, carrots and shrimp into 4 equal portions. Place broccoli florets in the center of of one half of the parchment heart. Set parchment on metal cookie sheet (or disposable aluminium pan); Layer shrimp and carrots on top of broccoli, cover with remaining marinade. Season with pepper. Fold parchment heart over to cover shrimp. Starting at the rounded end, crimp the edges together, folding themselves over and twisting the pointed end around once and fold the "tail" under. Repeat for each packet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serves 4.

Swamp Rabbit Cafe Cooking Class in Greenville, SC

   
Who here loves food? Pretty sure we all do! Do you ever get tired of making the same meals over and over and need some new inspiration? It’s always nice to go out to eat at a restaurant, but if you are constantly doing that it can get a little pricey. The Swamp Rabbit Café & Grocery in Greenville, SC offers cooking classes where you learn some delicious recipes, techniques, and leave with a happy heart and a full stomach. Classes are taught by Chef Season who is a very experienced Chef and has so much knowledge about food it will amaze you! Classes are during the week from 6-8 pm. Classes typically have ten people and about five different recipes being made, so about two people per recipe.

Chef Season begins the class by going over the basics of how each recipe is made. Each station already has everything set up to include all of the ingredients and dishes out on the tables. There are a few meals that may already have been started due to time. She provides cutting techniques of what to do and what not to do such as cutting off a finger or how to taste to season without giving everyone your germs.

All of her classes have different themes, and only the really popular ones are repeated so make sure you check out the calendar each month to see what that month’s themes are because classes sell out quickly! This past March the themes were Fresh Pasta, Kiss Me! I’m Irish, comfort foods and eat your greens.

I had gone to the comfort foods class and let me tell you it was amazing! The five different recipes made were Shepherd's Pie, Chicken & Dumplings, Cheesy Grits, Mac & Cheese, and Upside Down Strawberry Cake. I’m going to be honest and tell you that I’m a picky eater, so I was very surprised that I loved every single bite of each recipe. Learning the basics of how to make each recipe was really interesting. To get started she let us pick our own dish to make and also gave us the option to rotate dishes so we could help with each part. I decided to go with making the mac & cheese. At first, I was a little overwhelmed knowing I was making this meal for everybody to eat because what if I messed up! Thankfully many people were newbies and felt the same way. Chef Season did a great job and rotated through each table helping everybody with their questions.

We all finished around the same time and went around and admired each other’s work. We finished the class by serving all of our recipes and sitting together as a group and trying what we made. It was a great way to learn new things, socialize and have a good time.

April’s classes are already sold out but keep an eye out for May’s classes. You can reserve your spot at swamprabbitcafe.com/cooklocal. Classes are only $35 per person. You walk away full plus Chef Season provides you with written instructions for each of the recipes you made. After the class you can also use the Swamp Rabbit Café & Grocery and receive a 10% discount. The café serves local and regional goods of farm fresh produce, meat and dairy.

The Swamp Rabbit Café is located at 205 Cedar Lane Road in Greenville, SC.

We here at PRODUCER Realty know a lot about Greenville and the surrounding area, so if you are thinking about moving or need to buy or sell a home within the area, please keep us in mind! We would love to help you find the perfect home so give us a call at 864-438-5050 with any questions and we will be happy to assist you.

Hiking in Greenville, SC

Have you ever heard of the small growing city called Greenville in South Carolina? I relocated to this area 1.5 years ago and am very happy I have chosen this place as my new hometown. I am originally from Minnesota and as I got older I realized I just had to get away from the cold. But the question was is where should I move to? I knew I liked the ocean, but I also enjoy the mountains and hiking. I did a lot of research in finding a location that could offer me both of these that was also affordable and friendly, and I narrowed in on Greenville. I knew that I could do weekend getaways to Myrtle Beach as it’s just a four-hour drive or Charleston which is only a three-hour drive. I could have chosen these places to move, but like I said I wanted somewhere close to the mountains as well. The Smoky Mountains is just another three-hour drive west!

What’s even better is that South Carolina has 47 State Parks! They all offer different things such as hiking and biking trails, camping, boating, fishing, and more! From Greenville, 12 of these State Parks are just one hour away! The majority of the State Parks have an entrance fee such as $5 per adult, which isn’t bad at all, but if you’re a family who hikes a lot like mine, then you can take advantage of the Park Passport. There are a few options for the Park Passports, but if you plan to go to all of them as many times as you want it’s only $75 a year. So, if you have four adults in your car, instead of paying $20 each time all you pay is $75 total. It’s an awesome deal! The inland Park Passports is only $50 for the year and allows admission into 42 out of the 47 parks. The five parks the exclude from this passport is Myrtle Beach, Huntington Beach, Charles Towne Landing, Edisto Beach and Hunting Island.

My two favorite parks are Paris Mountain and Devils Lake State Park. Paris Mountain is only a 15-minute drive from Greenville and offers nine different trails ranging from easy to difficult. When you first enter the park, there are many shelters to have picnics are barbeques as well as a beautiful lake. I have taken my two-year-old son around the lake many times since it’s only .75 miles. I would say my favorite trail at that park is the Sulphur Springs trail which is a 3.6-mile loop. It’s a little challenging, but so worth it. What’s better than getting a quick workout in while enjoying Mother Nature? There’s another lake you pass on the trail as well as two others throughout the park. Devils Lake State Park also has trails but is known for its access to Lake Jocassee. This lake is known for its clear water, but is also breathtakingly beautiful with the mountains in the background and the several waterfalls it contains. The lake offers a swimming area, boat rentals, kayaks and more. I would recommend this park to anybody!

Even if you feel like just staying in Greenville, there is so much to do and see! Falls Park on the Reedy is on the heart of Greenville and entails the Liberty Bridge which hovers over a waterfall on the Reedy River. Falls Park also has gardens and trails to enjoy on a nice sunny day. The paved Swamp Rabbit Trail starts here and continues for 19.9 miles! Great for runners and bikers! No matter what you like to do there is always something fun to do around Greenville, South Carolina.

If you have any interest in buying or selling in the Greenville area, we would love to help. Give us a call at 864-438-5050 with any questions and we will be happy to assist you in your journey.

Fun Ideas for Date Night in Greenville, SC

Has anybody noticed that it’s already almost April! Time to get out of hiding from the cold weather and start enjoying the beautiful sunshine with that special someone. Anybody new to the area and need some fun ideas for a date? Or for those that feel that they just need some fun with your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband whoever it may be? Well Greenville, SC has plenty of options.

If you have never gone to Falls Park on the Reedy or even if you have gone many times, the park offers such a beautiful scenery that anyone can enjoy it. The two of you can walk through the gardens and take a seat on the swinging chairs while the sun is setting. Soaking up nature while being downtown is always something couples enjoy. If you guys are more adventurous then you can bring your bikes and bike the Swamp Rabbit Trail right next to the Falls.

After Falls Park you can easily access all of the restaurants downtown Greenville has to offer. Some date night restaurants are right next to the falls. If you guys are in the mood for surf ‘n’ turf then Larkin’s on the River is a great option. Smoke on the Water is a tavern that serves Southern food and The Lazy Goat is more Mediterranean style. One of my favorites that is good old American food is Grill Marks with the best shakes you will ever have. If you guys have room for dessert, there is always ice-cream! The Marble Slab Creamery and the Crème Shack are both delicious and right on Main Street.

Once the two of you had dinner, don’t just head home because there is so much left you can do! If you’ve had a long week and in need of a good laugh The Comedy Zone or the Alchemy Comedy at Coffee Underground are great options. Both places are in the heart of downtown and typically have shows twice a night Thursday through Saturday. These are popular places so be sure to plan ahead and book online. Alchemy Comedy even offers stand up classes or open mic at The Comedy Zone for those of you who have a passion for making others laugh.

The Bon Secours Wellness Arena is another option. The Arena has many awesome events that would make a fun date night. A few events coming up along with many others are the band Little Big Town playing on April 20th, Cirque du Soleil August 8-12th, and Kevin Hart on October 7th.

If the two of you want to stay outside throughout your night, try going to a baseball game and watching The Greenville Drive at Fluor Field. Baseball games can always be fun! They will be playing until the first week of September so look at their schedule for a home game and go have some fun.

For those of you who like to unwind by having some drinks, the perfect place to end your night is one of Greenville’s beautiful rooftop hangouts where you can enjoy the views of the whole city. Sip Whiskey & Wine is located right across the street from the Comedy shows and is a rooftop wine bar with tasting pours and a delicious food menu. During the weekend they typically perform live music. Another popular rooftop bar is Up on the Roof which is located on the 8th floor of the Embassy Suites at RiverPlace. If the two of you are wanting even more entertainment than Jack n’ Diane’s Dueling Piano Bar is another great option.

These are all fun things to do for a date night in Greenville, SC and you can combine any one of them to have a good time. The big twist is that these are only a few out of the many options to do here in Greenville!

Fun Things To Do For Easter In Greenville, SC

Easter is approaching quickly! Easter will be on April 1st this year and the area of Greenville, South Carolina has out done themselves once again! Dozens of events will be taking place throughout Greenville to celebrate Easter and get this, they are free! Who doesn’t like having fun while it costs you nothing! Families have countless opportunities to partake in these events, but remember most of them happen before Easter. If you are not sure exactly how to celebrate, if your new to the area, or just had a child and need ideas, we have plenty!

Easter Egg Hunts are always a favorite amongst the kids. There are many different chances to get it on an Easter Egg Hunt. If your family is looking for something big and exciting the Easter Eggtastic Event at Century Park in Greer is a great option. This event takes place on March 24th from 11-1pm. Each child can collect up to eight eggs and only 10-20 children go out at a time. There will also be free inflatable and activities for the kids. The Community Easter Egg Drop at Sunset Park in Mauldin is a must see! The event will take place on March 24th from 12-4. What makes this even so exciting, is that a helicopter will fly by and drop thousands of eggs over a big field for the kids to go run and put them in their basket. The event is organized into three separate egg hunts based off the child ages. At 1pm will be ages 0-2, 2:30 will be for preschool-K5, and the last one at 3:15 for 1st-5th grade. There will also be free activities going on from 12-1:45. If you have a child with a lot of energy then you could even manage to do both events! Can’t make these events? There are even more egg hunts different days in different areas. Simpsonville, Piedmont and Spartanburg will each have an egg hunt on March 31st. Many of the churches in the area also do some type of event for Easter as well.

If you don’t feel like dealing with a crowd, you can always make a scavenger hunt at home! All you need is some plastic eggs and some candy! Growing up, as I got older my parents would even put some money in some of the eggs, so my siblings and I would always race to get the most eggs and see who got the most money! You can even create an egg toss at home and see who drops it first or compete against your family during a bunny race. The only thing required is some old pillow cases.

Well you might be thinking what other fun ideas can I do with my family? There are many different arts and crafts out there perfect for Easter. Dyeing eggs is always fun and in these days there’s even ways to not make such a big mess! What can get better than that! Kits can be found at most stores such as Target and Walmart. You can cut out ovals and have each member of the family decorate their own Easter Egg. Making food to look like an Easter bunny is always entertaining for the kids and yummy to eat!

Now that you know some of the activities you can do for Easter, let’s talk about the Easter basket itself. If your family decides to make an Easter basket this year, there are many different things you can put in them. Most baskets have some form of fake grass in there along with a whole lot of candy. You might include some coloring books or some small toys such as a toy truck or barbie doll. If you have younger kids they will be happy with pretty much anything you put in the basket for them. Some ideas are some snack foods your child can eat or small stuffed animals.

We at PRODUCER Realty hope you all have a Happy Easter!
