Tracie and I did some traveling in Georgia this past week and Savannah was one of the stops we made along the way. Now, ya’ll know that folks can’t make a trip to Savannah without partaking of at least one mighty fine, home cooked meal at Lady & Sons. I mean, Paula Deen would never speak to us again, right?? And just for that reason, I wasn’t about to depart the area without a visit. That’s me in front of the store—Tracie did her best to make me look presentable, but it just wasn’t happening. I blame it on those high winds that followed us from Kansas. However, she did a great job capturing the Lady & Sons sign in the picture.
We enjoyed Paula’s famous chicken pot pie for lunch. The picture doesn’t do it justice, partly because we forgot to take the picture until it was half eaten, and partly because there’s just no way you can smell that wondrous creamy sauce or taste that flaky puff pastry on top. We also shared a piece of Paula’s gooey butter cake for dessert. Now that may not look like a very big piece of cake, but I’m here to tell you that there’s enough butter and sugar in that little piece of divine pastry to make your taste buds stand at attention. You’ll notice that we did remember to snap a picture of the cake before we dug in. Being a good daughter, Tracie sent one of these fine cakes to her mother back in Montana. She then called her mom to tell her it was on the way. Unfortunately, Tracie wasn’t exactly sure when it would arrive. I’m sure her mom remained on ‘cake watch’ until the friendly UPS truck arrived with that special treat!
One of the things most of us enjoy when we travel is enjoying some of the yummy food of the region. As I thought about the restaurants we visited and fine food we tasted during our trip, I was reminded that we also need to feast upon the Word of God—a feast that sates all hunger.
O taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8
May you find joy as you fill yourself with the Word of Life. ~Judy
