Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits

After an afternoon at the oyster roast, we were invited to dinner by one of Trent’s co-workers. Dave and Iris live in another suburb outside of Charleston called Summerville, an area we are considering. Iris gave us a warm welcome by cooking us a traditional Charleston dish—Shrimp and Grits. Sure I was a little nervous at the sound of grits for dinner, but WOW was it delicious. It was like jambalaya but with homemade grits instead of rice. I plan to make good friends with Iris, get her drunk, steal her recipe and share it with you!
