There won’t be a menu this week because we are in New Orleans. We arrived Friday afternoon and so far we have had the following meals:
Appetizer at Margaritaville: chili cheese fries (We hadn’t eaten anything except a breakfast biscuit on our way out of town and we were meeting up with friends for dinner at 7:30. We were starving so we split an appetizer and had some drinks while listening to live music until our friends showed up.)
Dinner at Coop’s Place: I had fried chicken, rabbit and sausage jambalaya, coleslaw.
Lunch on the patio at Turtle Bay: cochon de lait (pulled pork po’boy)
Dinner at Adolpho’s: I had Fish Michelle (red drum topped with shrimp and crawfish in a cream sauce). David had the best chicken piccata I’ve ever tasted.
Lunch at Hobnobber’s while watching the Saints game: I had crab cakes and macaroni and cheese. David had breakfast (eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits).
Dinner: El Gato Negro with friends. Best Mexican food ever. I had cheese enchiladas and David had chicken enchiladas. We all shared some guacamole made fresh at our table. They have some pretty spectacular margaritas made with fresh juice, too.
We slept late today and David walked to the corner to get us sandwiches for lunch. Commerce is one of those little places which most tourists don’t know about (yet). I had a turkey po’boy and David had a muffaletta.
I don’t know what our dinner plans will be yet but you can be sure the food will be delicious.
