Perfect Margarita

Hi glowworm,
Glad to see someone else is still reading this blog. maybe we can create some renewed interest. I am new to margs, but have been enjoying experimenting. I am not at all into "brand names". I am looking for what taste best. My intro to margs was a "Cadillac marg" at Las Casuelas Terraza in Palm Springs. Since I'm not a movie star I had to learn to duplicate their Cad Marg at home. My latest formula is 3:1:1:2. The teq is reposado (from Trader Joes) as is the Bols and I use B&B instead of Grand Marnier. Also I have an abundance of Myers lemons and use them instead of limes. The ratios seem important as I have tried to eyeball it and was not as successful. I have never tried the agave nectar, but will later this evening.
Will also try the seltzer. CHOW is GREAT

Soft shell crabs in Savannah area

Any up dates on Georgia soft shell crabs. I've heard May is when they begin. How bout Darien area? What is the going price? Where can you buy them?

Paula Deen's restaurant

I have never eaten at PD's. I have never heard anything great about it. BUT, Savannah is worth a drive from Atlanta. All of downtown Savannah is a historical district. There are at least a dozen real good restaurants there, and the town it self is beautiful. Go on March 17 th if you are brave. They officially close all of downtown Savannah for the St. Patricks Day Parade. I have heard it is second only to NYC.

While traveling to Savannah go over to Tybee Island for a great beach and eat at the Breakfast Club. Only opened for breakast. http://www.tybeeisland.com/dining/brc....

And if you have time keep going south to Darien, go to Hunters and then go a little further south to St.Simons Island, The Red Barn http://www.benniesredbarn.com/ has been there for at least 50 years.

" I'd love you folks to help us find good quality artisan meats."

I never saw a complete answer to that. Has any one found or created a list of these local artisan meat suppliers? I would like to find local (PNW) sources for lamb, goat, pork, fowl and beef. If you know of a good local source send it to me and I will create a list and post it.

Eat well and prosper,

oyster farms in Washington

I think it has to do with what you grew up eating. I preferr the east coast smaller oysters from Georgia, Chesapeake, I think. They are seldomly a dime any more, closer to a buck. The Gulf oysters are different. Here is a site that gives some info on the subject.

Atlanta: Mary Mac's or the Colonnade?

Mary Mac's is almost a historic Atlanta landmark. I ate there a year or so ago and really enjoyed it. (And I am from the "south") Try the old fashion southern classics. Seems like I even remember fried green tomatoes. Pittypat’s Porch may be touristy now it has been around since the '60s. There are a lot of good restaurants downtown and in Buckhead. The Pleasant Peasant was good many years ago (mid town). The Varsity near Georgia Tech is pretty unique.

Gourmet Burger

Any other good burgers in Medford/Ashland/Rogue Valley?

So far I think Porter's in Medford has the best burger for the best price $3.00 at happy hour.

Any good food in Ashland or Rogue Valley?

Thanks for the response. I have read the past years post. My wife and I love Elements and Porters, just around the corner. Never heard of Morning Glory before. I have heard that Pilaf is for sale and the owner, Susan Powell, will keep up her work with Global Pantry.

Is there a list of Ashland area posters?
