SG Weekly Menu March 28- April 4, 2010


Greetings from beautiful Savannah GA! I am here enjoying a girl’s getaway with my mother, daughter, sister-in-law and dear friend. We are having a wonderful time!

Today we walked the streets and toured the gorgeous historic homes as part of  The 75 Savannah Tour Of Homes And Gardens. The tour took us to the Ardsley Park area of Savannah. Established between 1900-1930, these mansions boast the best and most beautiful of their kind!  We were thrilled to be able to visit these wonderful homes today!

Tomorrow holds the promise of just as much fun and excitement as we are scheduled for the “Paula Deen” Tour’, finishing with  a lunch at Uncle Buba’s Oyster House. My daughter Jacqueline and I went on this tour last year and were so impressed that we want to share it with the rest of our group. We will spend the remainder of the day in Savannah’s antique and interiour design district. This is heaven. I love southern style!

Then is is off to Blowin’ Smoke for bar-b-que! Blowin’ Smoke was recently featured in Southern Living. It is a marvelous place to eat! It will be a big day of eating, thankfully it will also be a big day of walking!

That’s enough for now- I’ll have some fun posts later.  Look for a recipe from tonights dinner at the Charter House– A parmesan crusted grooper topped with lump crab and served on a bed of smashed potatoes with a light sherry cream sauce. I’ll try to reproduce it and get the recipe out to you!

    Savannah is one of my favorite cities. The food is fabulous and there is so much to see. We have a couple of favorite restaurants out on Tybee Island on our “can’t miss” list. I’m still in Florida, may be here a while. Have fun.

    How wonderful to share this trip with your mother, daughter, sister-in-law, and close friend. Have a terrific time, take good notes. The Quimper Annual Meeting will be held in Savannah next fall. Maggie @ Normandy Life is co-chair. I’m sure she would love to hear about your trip.
    Enjoy your trip. I look forward to photos!

    Bonjour Yvonne,
    What a wonderful trip, and I love your week’s menu. The Easter Sunday dinner looks lovely, it brings back so many precious memories for me. It is just my other half and I here in France so we are working hard to keep up with all these traditions.
    Enjoy your getaway,

    Savannah is a wonderful city. When we lived in Charleston, we traveled to Savannah often. The two “southern belles” are different and alike–well, just like southern belles!! Enjoy!

    so nice to have your girls with you in Sav- so much to do there- not sure if the salvage store across from Bedford’s is still there- but interesting things there. look forward to your ice box cake recipe- crossing my fingers it is of the coconut variety-my favorite. my guess is that the azaleas are still blooming. i really liked the shell and ballast walkaway along factor’s walk.

    Have a wonderful time in Savannah! How great to get everyone together for a getaway. Savannah is just gorgeous. I do beleive that petticoats are required there. It is just the epitome of the old south. Can’t wait to see all your pics and hear your stories!

    Uncle Bubba’s she crab soup and a wedge salad should be fabulous. I don’t see the she crab soup on the menu but hopefully they’ll have it as the soup of the day when you’re there.

    I love Savannah, there isn’t any more that I can say about it.
