Lowcountry Living

I grew up in a small town, Summerville, South Carolina on the Ashley River; a magical place in the summer where we had marsh mud fights and then ran for a rope swing hanging from an old oak tree to drop in the river and wash off. That old rope to this day still swings and sways like moss over the river. When our children or grandchildren make the maiden voyage and experience the rush of the rope swing into the cool water, they are hooked. This place becomes a part of you.  My brother and sister-in-law live in the home we grew up in and have done everything to honor our parents desire for their children, grandchildren and great-grand's to have a gathering place long after they are gone.  Gardens have been added and meandering walks of Charleston brick lead you from one beautiful view to the next but the things that last for a life time are memories.

I can't say I know anything more than how to eat seafood but my brother and his son are masters at fishing, shrimping and gathering oysters. This year was no different, we called to say we were on our way from TN for some of the good seafood and fun. The days were cooler than normal this year in SC but absolutely beautiful for a fire and steamed oysters outside.

I will share one of my brothers awesome recipes with you. So easy and oh my gosh, so good.
We don't cook with specific measurements so here goes.
Egg Noodles (I use about 1/2 a bag) cook and set aside
approx. 2 lbs of cleaned raw medium size shrimp (sauté in 2 tablespoons of butter)
sprinkle old bay seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper to taste
combine your favorite can cream of chowder soup (18-20 oz can) and cooked egg noodles and heat on low until bubbly hot. Serve
I found these biscuits in our local grocery!!

 Take time to enjoy some lowcountry cuisine.
Thank you Rick and JoBeth, you guys are the best at southern hospitality.
