Last weekend, the DH and I went to Edisto with my family. It was windy, but the sun and the rest were glorious. We enjoyed hours of Skipbo, a few nights at one of the four bars on the island, fish tacos at Poe’s Tavern on Sullivan’s Island, and two huge slices of cake from Kiminski’s at the Market in Charleston. It was fun to be with my fam- especially my sweet not-so-baby sister and her boyfriend.
On the way home, we stopped George & Pinks, a local veggie stand. Everything there was beautiful- the tomatoes, the okra, the watermelon. They had goat cheese, which makes my heart skip a couple beats, but we didn’t buy any because we had a long road ahead.
On the road back from Edisto, the landscape is full of the most beautiful churches ever built. There are several small white churches with adjoining cemeteries and driveways lined with moss covered oaks. We stopped to snap a few at one of my favorites.
Once we got home, I couldn’t wait to use our beautiful veggies! So, for the 4th of July we, like good Americans, made burgers, corn on the cob, and grilled zucchini. The whole evening was a dream. We really love cooking together, and we’re beginning to wonder why we ever eat out. We love our time in the kitchen, we like the food we make, we like the money we save. So really, why on earth do we ever pay hard-earned money to miss out on all of that? Here’s a glimpse into our great 4th.
One other good thing we’ve discovered around Greenville is The Community Tap. It’s located right where Church meets Wade Hampton right outside of Downtown Greenville. We stopped by after we got back from Edisto for some drinks to have during our cookout and little 2-person 4th of July celebration. They’ve got 6 different beers on tap for growlers and lots of great craft beer to choose from. We got a growler of Mad Hatter and some bottles of Sierra Nevada Porter. I’m not a dark-beer kind of gal, but there’s just something great about this porter. It’s a very drinkable dark beer, at least for me. DH likes it too. This may become a staple in our fridge.
