Visiting Uncle Bubba

From A Visit to Uncle Bubba

Savannah, our favorite southern city. Too bad Bob and I hate southern cooking; and we're hungry. What to do? We solved this problem last year. With no disrespect to Paula Deen, we discovered her brother, Bubba. This restaurant is right on the Atlantic InterCoastal Waterway, just before crossing the bridge onto Tybee Island.

Here they are shucking oysters. The grilled oysters are, no doubt, the healthiest item on the menu. I actually tried them a couple of years ago, and they are okay, but if someone declared that I could never eat an oyster again, I wouldn't be heartbroken.

Then came the Eureka moment. We discovered that the next best thing on the menu was, get ready for this: key lime pie and dark beer! Best key lime pie we have had anywhere, barring none. With a crushed almond crust and hand whipped cream laced with something exotic, what's not to love about this concoction? I bet Paula Deen had everything to do with this recipe.

So, whenever in Savannah, our dinner now consists of key lime pie and dark beer. Once a year it won't kill us! Here is a picture of a content Bob:
