St.Simon's Island

We're off to St. Simon's Island tomorrow, it's just down the coast from us at Brunswick and is one of the so called Golden Isles ... the other one being Jekyll Island where the seriously rich folks hang out.
We've scheduled what's called an inshore fishing trip which means we'll go by boat along the Intercoastal Waterway and fish.  But that depends on whether enough other folks have signed up to go too.  We may have to reschedule the fishing for a weekend day.
Regardless, we're still going to St.Simons, I want to explore the area and of course I want to paint the lighthouse.
Brunswick is famous for its Brunswick Stew and Mac says he'll probably have some.
This is a recipe called Get a Husband Brunswick Stew, I haven't made it but I plan on trying.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 (3 pound) whole cooked chicken, deboned and shredded
  • 3 (14.5 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes with liquid, chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup hickory flavored barbeque sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • hot sauce to taste (optional)
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 3 (14.75 ounce) cans cream style corn


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, and saute the onions and celery until soft. Mix in the pork and beef, and cook until evenly browned. Do not drain.
  2. Transfer the pork and beef mixture to a large stock pot over low heat. Stir in the shredded chicken, tomatoes and their liquid, ketchup, and barbeque sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Place the whole green pepper into the mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 hours, or until thickened.
  3. Stir the cream style corn into the stew mixture. Continue cooking 1 hour, or to desired consistency. Remove the green pepper; chop and return to the stew or discard.


  1. Are you trying to get a husband?? haha You have no need for another one....the one you got is pretty darned good to ya!

  2. sounds like enough to feed an army. I take it the Discard at the end is for the green pepper rather than the stew having gone horribly wrong :)
