Ohhhhh, the Food and Eye Candy in Louisiana

I researched Louisiana for one of my books and let me tell you, just reading about the food is enough to make me ravenous. I want to hop on the next flight! We should go. Are we there yet?

We’ll start the morning off with couche-couche – fried cornmeal topped with milk and/or syrup. Heck, why not both? Or maybe you’d rather have a sweet-as-sin beignet? I’m talking about the deep fried choux-paste topped with loads of powdered sugar. Can you just feel that bite melt in your mouth?

Off to some sightseeing, then lunch – maybe some etoufee? Or how about some jambalaya? I can almost smell the chicken, Andouille sausage, rice, shrimp, celery, and spices. Or maybe you’d rather have crawfish boudin – yummy! Crawfish, black and cayenne pepper, garlic, onion and rice. You’ll be sayin “Ca c’est bon” (that’s good) after the first nibble!

We’ll head out for more sightseeing, checking out the goings-on, lusting after the sexy men or beautiful women. Wear ourselves out lookin’ at all the shops and eye candy.

Time for dinner! Do you sense a theme on this trip? Food and eye candy! We’ll stuff ourselves with some gumbo – andouille, shrimp floating in bisque, or maque choux

By then it’ll be time to burn off some of those calories by gettin’ down and dirty to zydeco music and swamp-pop, then lazing around and drowning in jazz with a cup of cafe au lait.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
