So although I did my best, I also had a week of deep fried, breaded everything! Even vegetables such as "mess of greens" are slathered in butter or bacon fat. My first day in Bluffton took care of the southern staples: BBQ pork, grits, hushpuppies, fried green tomatoes and after that I stuck to local seafood and rice (easily grown in the marshy Carolina bays).(shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, potato) and in the afternoons a basket of crab dip with a melon colada from the Salty Dog Cafe. Dad's "Sea Dog" with Hilton Head Kettle Chips wins the award for best looking meal.
