Just by luck we stopped at Barefoot Farms:
The shrimp had just arrived and was in coolers beside the shop:
I asked for a pound and got (and paid for) a pound and a half.
In the market there was no lettuce out for display but I noticed the lettuce growing in the attached greenhouse:
I asked the woman tending the market if I could get some lettuce. "Sure" she said "how much would you like me to cut?' "Enough for two for one meal please." I got enough for three meals.
Then we purchased Chef Washington's "We Island" Garlic Crab and Shrimp Steam and Horseradish Cocktail Sauce:
And home we went to make supper, following the chef's instructions.
"We Island" Steamed Shrimp:
1/4 package of We Island Garlic Crab and Shrimp Steam
Needless to say, there was enough shrimp for two meals, so the next day we went back to the market and purchased a jar of Gumbo:
As far as we could discern, "We Island" is the term the older Gullah folks used to describe where they lived - "our home". Click to learn more about We Island Gumbo n' Tings and order their products.
Another evening we purchased a tomato pie - which was sold everywhere, but not Barefoot Farm, for supper. It was delicious but much to rich for our taste. Must have contained 500 calories PER BITE!! Check out Paula Dean's Recipe for it here.
When we moved on to Skidaway Island State Park outside Savannah we lunched at Paula Dean's restaurant "Lady and Sons" and tried a lot more southern food - but that is the subject for another post.
