Cooking up some Southern goodness from my Paula Deen cookbook: crab bisque and beer biscuits with honey. Listening to Irish folk music over a pint at Kevin Barry's Irish Pub. No room for a microwave in our micro apartment, so it's stovetop popcorn from here on out.
Cheesy crab dip slathered on toasted baguette after an afternoon at the mall.
Taking Jazzer Bat out on the town. Sometimes she's a pleasant pup. Other times she's a neurotic, anxious mess that makes walks more of a nightmare than a relaxing stroll. Here we are taking her out for a quick jaunt before our anniversary dinner. Nine years after our first official date at true Winterfest dance, we requested a chef's tasting dinner at Alligator Soul downtown.
Alligator Soul features exotic meats, local meat and vegetables, and organic cocktails. We had pork belly, black chicken, venison, and foie gras alongside the more typical scallop, pork loin, and lamb, but none the flavor combinations were typical or boring. Rich, hearty, surprising, and scrumptious describe this meal, one of the best we've had.
My favorite dish was the scallop Napoleon, whereas Kyle loved the venison wellington with blackberry sauce. We had a palate cleanser of guava sorbet between courses and a selection of truffles for dessert. Check out that dark chocolate peanut butter cup topped with sea salt!
Decorating for St. Patty's Day for the first time ever. Lots of green to freshen up the apartment and lots of green veggies in our meals this week: butter beans, collards, avocado, peas, and arugula.
Free concert at Forsyth Park. Listening to Of Montreal while sampling a few of Sweetwater Brewing's offerings made for another chill Friday night in Savannah.
Flowers in bloom in February and March. A plethora of produce at the farmer's market. Taking lunch and dinner down to the garden courtyard for a meal in the sunshine or under the stars.
A Saturday afternoon picnic on Tybee Island. Temperatures in the 60's, waves crashing on the beach, and seafoam shuddering in the wind served as the backdrop for our lunch and a walk along the water.
