I seemed to have neglected to share with you our travels this past May. It’s been a busy few months for us, as I look back. Our nephew and his beautiful bride had to go to a conference for a week and were in need to adult supervision for their two boys and puppy. So off we flew to North Carolina.
I got to cook for three hungry guys for a week and one the things that I’ve always wanted to try was Country Ham. So here’s what’s for breakfast. Pretty easy, frozen Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits, scrambled eggs and pan fried Country Ham. GONE!
We got to spend one evening with everybody, and our NIL made these gorgeous grilled kebabs, utilizing this recipe. Add a nice salad and some fresh asparagus and you’ve got dinner.
Bright and early, well bright anyways, we got up and this is what was waiting for us. Our nephew had breakfast ready for our send off. This recipe for no-knead bread couldn’t be simpler, and tasty too.
We headed for Savannah Georgia.
Our first night in town, we decided to try Bonefish Grill.
My husband likes his mussels. This dish came with a wonderful lemon wine sauce, that we asked for on the side, it made a great dipping sauce for our entire meal.
We each ordered wood-grilled fish, Rainbow Trout for him and Chilean Sea Bass for me. The fish is offered with your choice of their signature sauces, I chose lemon butter, pan asian and herb pesto, nice.
Ya gotta have dessert! We shared a piece of Coconut Pie with an outstanding rum sauce and fresh whipped cream.
We enjoy touring on our own, so we hoofed it all over town.
What a beautiful city. I had thought ahead and purchased us two day passes on the Old Town Trolley to serve as our means of motorized transport, if so needed. This gives you a good overview of a town; you can get on and off when and where you like.
In our trek, we came across The Lady and Sons restaurant. Can you see the line formed, going around the building. That’s okay, thanks. Where we did go in was to Paula Deen’s retail shop. If you know me, you know have this thing about collecting aprons. I found a real cute one on the sale table, thanks Paula.
Just down the block was our actual lunch destination, Belford’s. YUM! A perfectly done burger and fries for DH and a crab cake for myself. And did you know that it’s okay to walk around downtown Savannah with a cocktail in your hand? As we started to depart from our glorious lunch, our lovely waitperson asked if I would like a “to-go-cup-of-wine”.
We both enjoyed our time in both North Carolina as well as in Georgia.
