A Summertime Sandwich for a perfect Picnic

“There are only three things worth spending serious money on:  Scotch, mustard and cheese.”   Sandi, the all-time hostess with the mostest, repeated these words frequently on Sunday afternoons on her small Savannah kitchen terrace. Usually, the subject came up when she served what she called “a Summer Sandwich for a perfect picnic.” Usually, there were also coleslaw and potato salad and chips and some iced tea and Sangria.  The star was Sandi’s sandwich. The ingredients were simple:  thin-sliced breast of turkey from the Deli, fine, imported Dijon mustard, cherry preserves and thinly sliced Camembert cheese. And, of course, top quality Italian bread. She would make the sandwiches an hour & a half or more in advance and wrap them very tightly in aluminum foil. The cheese would melt just enough to moisten the Sandwich and all the flavors would marry..

At Sol, the tortilla chips dance!

Until last Tuesday’s Solar Social held at Sol I had so little interest in tortilla chips that if you’d asked me where to find good ones, I’d have shrugged and said, “where they aren’t allowed to get stale.” Then I discovered the chips at Sol.  They taste so fresh.  I think they must make them every few minutes. One bite into these delicious crisp morsels, even without roasted red pepper or tomatillo salsas… and the chips are dancing happily on your tongue while your taste buds sing. If you just want a quick munch with a cold beer on your way home from work,  Sol is the place to get it.

Cilantro: Affordable and Delicious

When I first heard that a new Mexican restaurant had opened up on Bay Street, (135 West) I simply shrugged. Savannah is filled with Mexican restaurants, most of them overpriced and under flavored. But then, thanks to Green Drinks, I ended up sampling the food at Cilantro. And I’m glad I did. If a variety of enchiladas–beef, chicken, bean, and cheese– are any indication, and I’m sure they are, the food is affordably priced, the portions generous, and very delicious. Besides, they have my very favorite Green Enchiladas!  I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me as time goes on about Cilantro. For the moment, suffice to say, the menu is extensive.  They have a full bar and a good selection of beer.
