Hey guys! Sorry no post yesterday...Jesse and I were all over town, and by the time we got back home, it was kind of too late to bother. Since we're down to only about 5 weeks left here, Jesse and I have been frequenting downtown Charleston a little more. Gotta cram in as much Southern food as I can before we leave!
My new favorite restaurant is Poogan's Porch. I've been hearing about the place for quite some time, but never got around to trying it. I met a friend there a couple weeks ago, and absolutely loved it. Everything about it...the atmosphere, the location, and of course, the food. This place is Southern food at it's finest...
...Fried Green Tomatoes and Fried Alligator for lunch. Doesn't get much better than that. Jesse stuck to his usual grilled cheese...he's no fun :)
Anyway, here's a tasty grilled chicken recipe we tried last weekend. Heath and I both really liked this. The apricot glaze is really good without being overpowering. Even if you're not a huge fan of apricots, I still think you'll like this. Of course if you can't stand them, then you should probably just move along ;)
Have a great weekend!
