I researched Louisiana for one of my books and let me tell you, just reading about the food is enough to make me ravenous. I want to hop on the next flight! We should go. Are we there yet?
We’ll start the morning off with couche-couche – fried cornmeal topped with milk and/or syrup. Heck, why not both? Or maybe you’d rather have a sweet-as-sin beignet? I’m talking about the deep fried choux-paste topped with loads of powdered sugar. Can you just feel that bite melt in your mouth?
Off to some sightseeing, then lunch – maybe some etoufee? Or how about some jambalaya? I can almost smell the chicken, Andouille sausage, rice, shrimp, celery, and spices. Or maybe you’d rather have crawfish boudin – yummy! Crawfish, black and cayenne pepper, garlic, onion and rice. You’ll be sayin “Ca c’est bon” (that’s good) after the first nibble!
We’ll head out for more sightseeing, checking out the goings-on, lusting after the sexy men or beautiful women. Wear ourselves out lookin’ at all the shops and eye candy.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
