When in Rome

February 28, 2011

My husband and I spent President’s Day weekend down in Thomasville, GA: hunting quail, riding horses, strolling through the pines, canoeing and eating. It was a true break from reality, particularly because we had the pleasure and luxury of a private chef. It’s times like this that I throw nutritional caution to the wind and eat all the delicious dishes that I remember from my childhood. Despite overdosing on sugar and flour, we ate fresh bass caught out of the pond, the quail we shot and venison and dove killed on the plantation. Both the Mayhaw jelly we spread on our biscuits and the green Princess Peas we ate for dinner are also local favorites. Here is what we feasted on over the long weekend:
