If I can't go to Charleston...

This will have to do.

At least from the culinary perspective. (YJDKIY is not eating so healthy tonight!)

Low-country Shrimp & Grits

1 c. quick cook grits
3/4 lb. shrimp peeled
3-4 slices of bacon
1 large shallot
3 cloves garlic
1/2 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 small tomato chopped

Add the grits to 3 c. boiling water with a pinch of salt, reduce to low-medium heat, cover, cook 5-8 mins. Heat the bacon over med-high heat in frying pan, remove and saute the shallot and garlic in bacon grease for no more than 1 minute. Add the shrimp and continue to cook until white and onions/garlic caramelize (about 3-5 minutes). Mix bacon and onion/garlic mixture into grits, stir in cheese until melted. Top with shrimp and chopped tomato.

What the KALE is that green stuff in the side dish? (amusing link, you should click through).
