More Big Easy

View from our hotel- right out onto the water.

I’m telling you, I’m obsessed with New Orleans now. πŸ˜‰ More pictures from an awesome trip!

Sing, Dance, Live: Chick had an AMAZING voice

Letting it all hang down...

Ok, so Wednesday I bombarded you with photos from my New Orleans trip. Well, today, I’m going to do the same. πŸ˜‰ A little more of what I ate in the Big Easy…

Red Velvet and Chocolate Deluxe

The Kupcake Factory may have sparked my interest… just look at all the crazy wonderful flavors and tell me you could pass this place up.

Yes... they were REALLY good.

And one seriously mention-worthy dinner was had atMuriel’s Jackson Square Restaurant. A little pricey but worth the cash.

Vegetarians and Vegans., close your eyes…

Martini? Yes.

Turtle Soup with swirled sherry (it came highly recommended... but sad to eat...)
My mom's dish: Wood Grilled Swordfish with a panzanella salad of arugula, cucumbers, vine-ripened tomatoes and red onions with grilled french bread; finished with a basil pesto
My Meal: Veal & Crab- Pan seared Veal scaloppine, topped with jumbo lump crabmeat; with mashed potatoes, asparagus and a bearnaise sauce

Doesn’t look super appetizing but it was damn good. I couldn’t chose what to get on the menu so I just gave the waiter a few choices and told him to pick… he definitely chose a winner. πŸ˜‰


Breakfast’s were about the same… everything comes with Grits.

Crawfish tail, shrimp, and crab omlete with a side of grits.
Mama's Breakfast: Eggs Benedict

I feel stuffed and sick just from that food recap… seriously, I love it in that city, but I’d be super super NOT healthy if I lived there. But once in a lifetime it’s ok to try all the food in a new place… right? πŸ˜‰


Me and one of my business partners

Now that I’ve shared all that I can about my trip, I’m done. Sorry for that semi-useless post but hey, you get to live vicariously through me. Oh, and my mom is 62… good guesses! I think she (and her skin!) looks pretty great for her age. But shhhhh, don’t tell her I said that.
