New Orleans Day 1
Lunch today was at a resaturant I visit at least once everytime I am in New Orleans, Cafe 615, Da Wabbit in Gretna. After a taste of my wife’s Seafood and Okra Gumbo, which was wonderful, I had a Fried Shrimp PoBoy. It was just the right way to start my stay in New Orleans. The shrimp were perfect. For dinner, we went to Perino’s Boiling Pot in Harvey. My wife, mother-in-law and I shared Boiled Crawfish, Fried Oysters, Fried Crab Claws, and Crawfish Boudin. The best dish was the crawfish boudin. The boudin is so good, I usually bring home 10 pounds for future eating. The fried food was good, but the crawfish were disappointing. Although they were hot, there was very little seasoning. I often boil crawfish at home so I was hoping for some crawfish close to mine. I guess I will have to try other places. Tomorrow, I will be marching in the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s parade. We will start with breakfast, cooked by my sister-in-law Edna and end up somewhere for dinner. I am looking forward to the parade because it will be a rare time that all of my brothers will be together. Hopefully I will be able to fill y’all in on where we will eat tomorrow night.
