And to make matters worse, I have been “snowed in” in New Orleans. Yes, snowed in having to endure 70 degree temperatures because the northeast is again “closed.” But there are stories to tell, and hopefully within a week my life will be back to normal (never – ha, ha) and I can fill you in. Let me just say that a quick trip with friends has been extended due to snow miles away, and we have to suffer the heat and sun. More to come, but to tempt you to “stay tuned:”
COSTUME CONVENTION – “EXCUSE FOR BEING HERE”
And, then there were parades a week before we thought they were (they extend for weeks we learned)
And, there were museums (throw me in those buildings)
And the food !!!! COMMANDER’S PALACE – A must before you die !!!
Just my appetizer:
Foie Gras “Du Monde”
Black skillet seared Hudson Valley foie gras over a Ponchatoula strawberry beignet with toasted hazelnuts, warm sugarcane syrup and foie gras infused café au lait
And, then tonight at Irene’s in the French Quarter (recommended by a book email customer) — one of my best meals ever, just after the Commander’s Palace and Chesterfield Inn last month.
More to come, but give me time — having too much fun to sit back and write.
Bye, catch you soon, love, RAY
You poor people …having to endure such misery. Yee Haw…
Lucky lucky you and all of that gorgeous food.
Is it Mardigras time?
Actually, what we learned is that Mardi Gras extends over a period of time. And the neighborhood parades prior to the final day are more relaxed and “family friendly.” We were please to get to see some smaller parades, and collected pounds of beads and trinkets.
