Home Again

Hi All! We returned from Savannah last night about 10:00. We are pooped!

Just wanted to show you a few pictures. The cart you see above is in City Market which was right outside of our hotel. We stayed in the Doubletree Inn in the Historic District. This hotel wasn't our first choice but turned out to be great! We were in a perfect spot to walk every where.

We did do lots of walking. We didn't get a rent car this time so we probably walked at least 5 or 6 miles each day.



Here we are at The Lady & Sons. We went two times. The first time was for lunch. Second time for dinner. It's really very easy to get in. We did just what you all advised...we were in line at 8:30 or 9:00 on the days we wanted to eat there. Put our name on the list and came back later at the appointed time. The service was wonderful. You could feel the excitement in the air there...everybody was just like us and couldn't wait to sample Paula's food.

The first day at lunch I had Poet's Lunch which was chicken salad sandwich and soup that was full of collard greens. Yummy! Paul had crab cakes. He thought they were the best he's ever had!

Saturday night for dinner we both had the buffet. Lordy Mercy!! Talk about being full of food. THE BEST fried chicken, roast, fried catfish, collard greens, black eyed peas, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, macaroni & cheese, cheesy biscuits, and hoe cakes. Between Paul and I we sampled a bite or two of everything.

This picture is Paul just loving the cheesy biscuits. Let me just tell you...our clothes definitely do not fit as well after this trip!

This is the last fried green tomato. I forgot to take a picture until the plate was pretty picked over.


Back in City Market. We took a wonderful horse drawn carriage ride around town. The tour guide told us lots of neat history about Savannah. There were many significant events that took place in this little town both in the Revolutionary War and in the Civil War.

Nancy, can you see Vinnie Van Go Go's back there? We ate pizza there the first night. We had pesto & sun dried tomatoes. Mmmm!

I have lots more pictures to share this week. Now I'm off to wash clothes!!

Have a wonderful day.

So glad you and your hubby made it home safe and sound! Your trip sounds FAB! Oh, that food you mentioned is making my mouth water! I love country cookin'! I'm guessing you didn't get to see Ms. Paula. I think she was here in Atlanta doing a cooking show over the weekend. Hey, at least you got to chat with Jamie! Can't wait to see more pictures. You and your hubby make such a cute couple!

Mary said...

Oh my goodness!!...I would probably gain at least ten lbs.
What a fun trip you had!
You didn't mention desserts?...;)
I sure wouldn't want to work there, after about a month I would be waddling around and then they would fire me...

Just a little something from Judy said...

Stacey, I was excited to see that you shared these photos with us. It looks like you had so much fun. The two of you are a good looking couple, and you and Paula look great together. Actually, not everyone looks good on cardboard like Paula does. I am glad to hear that the food in her restaurant is as delicious as you read that it is. I look forward to more pictures.
