Crab Stew Savannah

Crab Stew Savannah

We discovered Tondee’s Tavern in Savannah during our Thankgiving 2013 vacation.  It was damp and cold as we walked from our hotel across West Bay St to Tondee’s and we knew there was a bowl of soul-warming soup in our immediate future. Tondees had a miraculous dish on the menu called Savannah Blue Crab Stew that we’ve been trying to recreate ever since.  This is real close, y’all!

Classic Iced Tea

Iced Tea

Plain, simple, refreshing iced tea. I am not clever enough to come up with something good here.  Sorry.
Classic Iced Tea – From http://www.sharongreen.me – water, tea bags (regular size), cold water, In a small saucepan bring 2 1/4 cups of water to a gentle boil. Add the tea bags, remove the saucepan from heat and cover. Steep for 15 minutes.; Remove the tea bags without squeezing them (which would add bitterness) and pour the steeped tea into a 2 1/2 quart heatproof container (like a large Pyrex liquid measure). Add the 6 cups cold water and mix.; Let cool at room temperature and then refrigerate until cold. Serve over ice, garnished with sugar, lemon wedges and/or mint sprigs.; – Recipe from http://www.finecooking.com[/wpurp-searchable-recipe%5D
