We're staying in an amazing eighteenth-century house in historic downtown Charleston, and when I return home to my laptop Sunday afternoon, I'll share some photos of city living, Colonial style, but for now let me just provoke your jealousy by giving a rundown of the meals we've had here so far:
- shrimp and homemade sausage over yellow stone-ground grits at Slightly North of Broad
- fried pork chop with mashed potatoes and butterbeans at Boulevard Diner
- roast suckling pig, rapini, roasted beets, lamb shoulder, potato and goat cheese gratin, and fennel-blood orange salad at FIG
- fried green tomato BLT, fried cheese grits, hoppin john, cornbread, squash casserole, mac n cheese and lots of sweet tea at Hominy Grill
- biscuits and sausage gravy, naturally
I may never come home, and I'll never understand, given the bounty here, how these Charleston women remain so unaccountably thin...
