Low country food. Wonderful lunch at magnolias in charleston yesterday. Shellfish and grits. We shopped for provisions at harris teeter, upscale trader joes or downscale whole foods, just right. The mobs were shopping for hoppin john materials. A must have for new years day, which is carolina rice and pea beans. It brings good luck for the year. It was really hard to leave this morning. I could live there for the winter, happily..
