Sunday, June 24th, 2012

I’ve been stopping in at the excellent cheese store Pastoral on my way home from work once every few weeks. On a recent trip I picked up some of Milton Creamery’s Prairie Breeze cheddar (better description from Pastoral), which the cheese guy told me to try making a mac and cheese out of. I was […]

Pan sauteed beef tenderloin, twice-cooked broccoli with a balsamic reduction, roasted red pepper and sun-dried tomato soup

Eat like a king in Savannah, GA

Friday, June 8th, 2012
