NOLA Foodie

My family always give my grief about my lack of cooking at home and think I should have a delicious pound cake underneath my crystal cake stand. I can see their disappointed faces as they lift up the dome.. After years of restaurant ownership and baking in my sleep, I feel as if it’s my time to enjoy someone else’s cooking and I do not care who has a problem with it.

I take pictures of just about every event in my life and was surprised to see how much I dined out in two months, not that it will stop me from eating out lol. I think that it may serve a great purpose for my blogging. I think I may surprise my family and friends by keeping a lil something sweet under my cake dome too…

With that being said here are a few pictures of what I devoured in two New Orleans months.

Shrimp Boogaloo Benedict at the Ruby Slipper. I looked so good I couldn’t resist eating before taking a pic, it was worth it too.

Late night breakfast at Anita’s Grill. If you want some real New Orleans comfort food at affordable prices, you have to go here. Locals go after a night of partying. The grits, OMG I do not know how grits can be so good! Steak, grits and eggs, red bean & rice, over easy eggs, grits and hot sausage patty.

Late Night at Dots. Crawfish Creole Queen, open face grilled biscuits covered with 2 eggs and Crawfish Julie sauce was a winner for me.
