I Love Grits!

Our last day at the beach was wonderful. We had sunny, warm weather, and enjoyed a day of playing on the beach and eating good food! For lunch that day we went back to The Great Southern (I went there a total of three times on the trip, it was our favorite!). This time I had their signature dish, Grits a Ya Ya. It is: Smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauté of applewood-smoked bacon, spinach, shallots, garlic, portobello mushrooms, and cream, finished with spiced shrimp and sweet potato hay. We had this the last time we were in Seaside a couple of years back and loved it, so I was excited to try it again. And once again, it was delicious!
With my meal, I had a Red Stripe beer (yum!), which was perfect for a sunny day at the beach!

As an appetizer, we ordered the Blue Crab Claws. They were: Sautéed in a rich garlic dipping sauce of white wine, lemon butter, and cream. They were so amazing! The sauce was delicious!

Friday night we went back to Barefoot BBQ, where I picked up a BBQ chicken sandwich with potato salad, baked beans, and sweet tea. We took it to the park behind it where they were having a Guitar Hero contest. It was fun sitting there eating our food and listening to the contestants. Barefoot BBQ is located on Highway 30-A in an airstream trailer in the center of Seaside.

On our way out Saturday morning, we stopped at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach for breakfast. We had been there before for dinner, and always thought it was a fun spot. They now serve breakfast, so we thought we would give it a try. We both had eggs with bacon, grits, and biscuits. It was good, and very cheap ($5.00 each). You can find their website here.
