Out for Dinner at The Glenn - Shrimp Etouffee

I have been out of touch with most of blogland since the end of April. I have mostly been reading your posts in between trips to the nursing home. My father had a fall so I have been in southern Illinois since that time taking care of him. He is now in a nursing home and I visit with him twice a day reassuring him that everything is ok and making sure he eats. My blogging has really suffered but his care is at the top of my list right now.

Last Saturday evening, my husband and I took a little time to go to a restaurant in Charleston, MO, which is about 22 miles from Dad’s home in southern Illinois. The restaurant is named The Glenn which is the owner and chef’s family name. My husband had heard the restaurant had a great chef and fabulous food. We certainly were not disappointed. 

I order the shrimp etouffee and I can't begin to tell you how fabulous it was. Every bite just exploded in my mouth with flavor and goodness. Here's a picture of the entree.

Mr. Glenn, the chef, certainly has a talent and made our experience at his restaurant a pleasure. His wife was also working at the restaurant that evening and we had a chance to visit with her. We plan to dine there again soon. Here's a link to their FaceBook page. The Glenn family (father and sons) are farmers in the Charleston area but one son wanted to become a chef and returned to the area after working in a metropolitan city and opened The Glenn Restaurant. 

Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

  1. Your meal looks wonderful! Dining out is so memorable when the meal is perfect.

  2. So glad to hear from you again! I'm sorry to hear about your Dad taking a fall, and I know as a daughter it can become a top priority in your life. I go through the same thing, as my father is just turning 90 and has taken several serious falls, all of which he has recovered from nicely. But I know that this is not the norm. You used to follow my blog when I had it up and running, A Place to Gather, and I always enjoyed your blog so much because I am a dish lover. Then when I made the decision to discontinue my blog, I lost touch with alot of bloggers that I have been searching for. I finally found you through Blog Lovin and I'm really glad I did. I hope your Dad's recovery goes well, and we can continue to hear from you in the future. Just know that you are missed!
