MONDAY FOOD POST - THANKS TO OUR SON WHO WAS IN NEW ORLEANS


Our son was in New Orleans on business recently.


I am not sure which meal was from the restaurant above but it was a recommendation from a friend.  In the top photo he ordered Blackened Redfish Filet atop Crawfish Cornbread, topped with Creamy Shrimp Pontchartrain Sauce, and below is Fried and Blackened Alligator Bites.  He is a little more adventurous than I am.  I asked him what the alligator tasted like and he said, "Hard to say Mom, a meaty texture and a fried clams taste."

One of the steamboats... 



and videos he took while walking around.






Fabulous jazz!


Thank you son, it was fun to see New Orleans again.  We were last there about 35 years ago.

  1. Wonderful, wonderful photos! I adore the steamboat, and it even whistles music!! This is the perfect mini tour. I could not eat alligator, but if they have to be good for some purpose, well then....

  2. New Orleans carries a romance all of its own. Just the name...
    I think my partner has eaten crocodile. And if he hasn't he would if it was offered.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
