Today I ate half a bag of M&M’s as I was driving away from NOLA.
I needed one last HURRAH! Now I have have one big bellyache.
New Orleans, God love ya. Your tantalizing beignets and to-go cocktails. Your pralines. Your boudan. Your deep fried catfish with tartar sauce. Your jambalaya. My big bag of 50% off Halloween chocolate goodness cannot compete with your flavors, but my taste buds wanted to indulge just a little while longer as I drove away from French Quarter lovin’ and homemade B&B breakfasts.
Just a few things I consumed while romping around: Jambalaya, Orange Juice, Toast with Homemade Jelly, Hurricanes, Crawfish Omlets, Rice & Beans, Fried Catfish, Merlot, Grits with Cheese & Tomatoes, Fried Shrimp, Gumbo, Jameson on the rocks, Bread & Butter, Beef Poboys, Beignets, Coffee with lots of Cream, Chocolate, Hot Butterscotch Rum, Fries, Pralines…and so much more.
Thank you to Noni’s, The Gumbo Shop, Royal Street Courtyard, Cafe Du Monde, Cajun Grill & Bar, Five Continents, and many more for feeding me over the last three days!
Indulge sometimes…and when you do….do it in New Orleans!!!
