The Big Easy

An idea raised during a Vegas dinner with five friends over July 4, 2011 led to a reunion of 15 in New Orleans over this past Presidents Day weekend. Parades, gumbo, crawfish etouffee, beignets from Café du Monde, po-boys, beads and live music - it was a packed three days of good food and partying. While I would probably pass on another Bourbon Street night out, I wouldn't mind returning to the music venues along Frenchmen Street or for more food adventures over Jazz Festival one day.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Food Love

Aloha Fridays truck was over at Weddington Park for lunch today, woo hoo! I got the Ahi Tuna Shoyu Poke and boy, was it a great decision - they filled the container with yummy large chunks of fresh fish and greens.
