First things first, I want to apologize for the delay in posting! The last few weeks have been so busy, and then I have been on vacation! But the upside for you guys is that means there is a new giveaway!
Every year for the last 20 years or so, my family and I have gone to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. It is about 20 miles south of Myrtle Beach and is fresh water on one side and the ocean on the other. My parents have rented a house there, and after all these years, it feels like a second home.
Anyone who has ventured into the South, knows how much amazing food there is to enjoy! My husband and I went to dinner this year at a wonderful restaurant, Bistro 217(www.bistro217.com), where he tried soft shell crab for the first time. We both were pleasantly surprised by how mild and good it was. It had been Parmesan-crusted, and rested on a bed of tomato-mozzarella salad with fresh basil pesto. The saltiness of the pesto was an amazing compliment to the mild crab.
We also took the boys to a calabash. A calabash is a huge buffet that includes seafood, usually lightly fried, but they also sometimes include raw bars. The one we go to is Crabby Mike’s(www.crabby mikes.com) where the people are friendly and the food is always good. The boys rarely eat much, but they have a ton to look at!
How does this all work out for you??? Well………..while I was on vacation, I picked up a few things! Check them out!
In this great giveaway, there is Palmetto Farms Garlic Cheese Grits Mix, three different teas from Charleston Tea Gardens, Lazy Afternoon Crab Dip Mix from the Gullah Gourmet, Charleston’s Own Black Bean Soup Mix, and Carolina Gourmet(at Pawleys) Carmelized Pecan Brownie Mix.
