Mr. CPQ and I are leaving today for a quick weekend getaway (just the two of us!) to New Orleans, so today’s post will be short and sweet as I am busily packing things with stretchy waistbands to get me through the next few days of non-stop eating.
By the way, my house is still occupied to all you would-be burglars.
And my father-in-law knows his way around a rifle.
I absolutely love Cajun and Creole food. I love the spice, the complexity, the simplicity, and the culture behind it. Touring New Orleans through its food has been a desire of mine for many, many years. Since we began planning this trip, I’ve been drooling dreaming of all the places we could go. Sadly, we only have 48 hours, so a few places have had to drop off the list (I need more meals in a day).
I thought I’d leave you with a little linky love to let you know some of the places we’re scheduled to go (and if you don’t have vacation plans of your own this weekend, just live vicariously through mine).
For muffalettas, we’re headed to Frankie & Johnny’s.
Breakfast Saturday morning will be at Cafe Du Monde. This has been on my Bucket List for YEARS!
For po’ boys, we’ll be at the Acme Oyster House.
And on Sunday? The famed gospel jazz brunch at Commander’s Palace.
There will be bananas foster.
In all their flaming glory.
Have a nice day.
