I made granola!

The recipe is from the New York Times.  I came across it from a favorite blog of mine, What We Cooked.   Unfortunately, I did not read the recipe throughly and put the fruit in to bake -- I will not do that again.

Stanley's Breaux Bridge Benedict

Breakfast outside of my own kitchen always seems like a special treat!  I live in a food town and I feel lucky every time I try a new place.  This week we made our first trip to Stanley and I don't know why we waited so long!
the boudin on this benedict -- there are not words.   
Go there ... get this.  HURRY!
Oh yeah, and the view from your table isn't too shabby either!

(a note ... the boudin is from Charley T's -- I must visit this place

Congratulations and thank you so much New Orleans Saints.  You have given the city your best and for that we will be eternally grateful!

We were in the middle of all this last night...and we loved every minute of it!

Today is THE day!

Today it's nothing but Superbowl Day here in New Orleans and we are
starting it off like we are supposed to -- a sensible breakfast and
Bloody Marys.    I infused vodka with horseradish all week for an extra kick!

Now, if you  haven't formed a game-plan
menu today, it is not too late.  Check out what
goodliver suggests.  She is always on the ball
with fun and food in New Orleans.  YUM!

We'll be having a big pot of chili for later in
the day, come on by if you are in the

Go Saints!!

Cafe Roux

Comfort food on St. Claude.  Cafe Roux is newish(opened 2009) to Bywater and worth a try if you are hungry.  That's a stuffed bell pepper, baked macaroni, & english peas.  The pepper is stuffed with shrimp and sausage.  M. tried the red beans, corn mache choux, and baked macaroni.  We needed a nap after consuming.  Cafe Roux caters too!
