Lady and Sons

Lady and Sons
Originally uploaded by linfrye
Charles and I were fortunate to be able to secure a reservation for lunch at Lady and Sons Restaurant, (Paula Dean's restaurant) before we left Savannah. It's Southern cuisine at its finest! We dined from the buffet - collard greens, boiled potatoes, black-eyed peas, green beans, BBQ pork, fried and baked chicken, salad, banana pudding, peach cobbler, chocolate pie .. and the BEST skillet corn bread I have EVER tried and PHENOMENAL cheese biscuits!!! Good -- really GOOD good thing we walked and walked all around Savannah and skipped dinner!

We're in Florida now with Mom -- more about that tomorrow. Sketches done in the car while Charles drove and painted after arrival in Florida.

Today we prepare for another feast tomorrow -- we'd better find somewhere to WALK again soon! LOL

Beautiful looking meal Lin.

Yum. People who've never eaten southern just don't understand how good it is, do they?
;-) Love that iced tea garnish!

Neat sketch -- I especially like the glass with tea and mint. Oh my, that sounds so delicious -- and I'm not way into Southern cooking, but it's growing on me (on my hips, my thighs, my stomach...).
Glad to hear you arrived safely and and still sketch, paint and upload!
Happy Thanksgiving,

Safe travel to you. Your meal does sound yummy. When traveling, I've felt the same tug between slowing down to sketch, and seeing all there is to see. I think there should be a "slow travel" movement, similar to the "slow food" one, that advocates for slowing down and sketching, photographing carefully, rather than stolen snapshots, and just enjoying, rather than taking in quantity. But having spent 2 weeks in Italy 2 years ago, I do understand the need to see all there is to see. Sigh.

Love your Savannah sketches Lin. I loved Savannah, even more than Charleston and how perfect that you could round it off with one of Paula Dean's meals...she always makes me smile!
