More South Carolina

On Friday we spent the day driving around, orienting ourselves with the area, and in the afternoon we headed to the nearby temple.  We had a great experience there, and then headed out for some grub.

On our way there, we got completely stuck in a raging rain storm and ended up pulling off the road to wait it out.

We ended up at a barbecue place that had been recommended.
I ordered the buffet so that I could try out everything and then some.  It was so fun.  I ended up trying out grits with shrimp gravy (you kind of mix it together - good thing the kitchen helper guy was there to explain how to put everything together!), shrimp, squash casserole, broccoli casserole, okra, hash, bbq pork, mac'n'cheese (with pimentos - which is all the rage apparently).  Just a taste of everything.  My husband went for the ribs.  We loved trying to figure out what the side dishes actually were - when my husband ordered okra, the waitress said 'oh yeah, something normal'...we laughed since okra isn't really normal for us.  

Hash & Rice, Collards, Rice & Gravy Okra, Sweet Potato French Fries, Succatash, Okra & Tomatoes...yep..those were all of the foreign foods.  And, it just seems weird to have cabbage on a menu at a restaurant - unless it is in sauerkraut on a hot dog!
