We had an excellent time in New Orleans… I absolutely loved it and the food was fantastic as well.  The crowd was crazy because of the Saints game so Bourbon Street was nuts.  Of course we spent some time at the Super Dome people watching and listening to the band… okay, so we were drinking beer too.  Drinking  on the streets in New Orleans is encouraged!  Kehe Specialty Foods treated us to a Gala at the Mardi Gras Museum.  We traveled to the Gala in our own parade riding on actual Mardi Gras floats and throwing beads.  Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE a parade.   I had the most delicious barbecue  shrimp dinner one night,it was the best meal I ever ate.  I tried to recreate it and it turned out pretty good.  Heavy on butter, but super good.  The dish is nothing like the barbecue shrimp I have made in the past, the sauce was mostly butter, Worcestershire and spices.  When I ate it in the restaurant, I really had no idea was was in the delicious sauce was.  They served bread on the side to sop up every drop.  It wasn’t  a hot (as in spicey) dish either, most of the Cajun or Creole food we ate really wasn’t hot which surprised me.  Anyway, we had an amazing time and I would love to head back there again sometime.

    I had a picture taken at the Fish Creek winter festival doing the toilet seat toss and was wondering how I can receive a copy of the picture?
