Warning: None of the food in this post can be claimed as healthy. But when in New Orleans I threw caution to the wind and went for the full experience! (Complete with a visit to Cindy the alligator) I really enjoyed my time in New Orleans, aka the food and the music….and of course spending time with my family! :)
Here are a few food staples in New Orleans:
Cafe au Lait & Beignets at Cafe du Monde

Mother’s Restaurant


The Classic Fredi: roast beef and ham, dressed (cabbage, mayo & creole mustard)

Fried Shrimp Po Boy (yes fried shrimp on white bread) and it was lovely :)

    I believe the number of sites that make an effort to “grow their fan base by communication” is usually increasing. Lots of individuals jumped into building web-sites and writing without realizing the importance of developing a connection with their viewers. Like you’ve here, congrats.
