You don’t have to go to the French Quarter of New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. Have your own celebration enjoying creole or cajun cuisine and other food traditions of Mardi Gras. We have King Cakes and Paczkis on Monday and Fat Tuesday and some festive cupcakes to celebrate the event.
One staple in our family cupboard has always been Zatarain’s Dirty Rice mix, all you have to do is add water and browned ground beef, a one pot meal to have any time of year.
Po’ boys are another Louisiana food that we enjoy. Po’boys are a sandwich that consists of meat or seafood (usually fried) served on a baguette. One of our favorite po’ boy recipes is made with ground pork from a recipe I found years ago in Food and Wine magazine Spicy Pork Po’Boys is included in our Menu this week.
How about trying Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage? “New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.” – Mark Twain
On Wednesday we bring back our delicious fresh fried Cod sandwich in our Deli, stop in and pick some up for your dinner on Wednesday.
