My last post detailed our very enjoyable visit to The Lady & Sons restaurant owned by Paula Deen and her sons Jamie and Bobbie in historical Savannah, Georgia. While waiting for our reservation, we strolled around looking at some of the quaint shops, stopping to make a few purchases including adorable apron sets for two of our grandkids. After lunch, we stopped in Paula Deen's gift shop that is attached to her restaurant.
I bought a beautiful 18" x 22" acacia wood pie board for one of our kids who makes a lot of pastry. The pie side is engraved with 6", 8", 9" and 10" rolling guides, and is edged with a 14" ruler for easy and accurately preparing pie dough. The other side is not engraved and can be used as a cutting board. I just knew she would love it!
I just could not resist buying two of the butter y'all butter dishes (one shown). They were just too cute! One was a gift for the same kid receiving the pie board, the other for us. I keep butter on the counter ready to use as desired. I only refrigerate it for storage and one hot, humid days. The butter dish comfortably holds a 4 oz stick of butter. I buy butter in full pounds so have to cut it for the butter dish but that's fine. It's a wonderful and functional memento of our visit to The Lady & Sons.
