I've been MIA for a bit... apparently since Easter (I could have sworn I'd been dilligently blogging this whole time...). My apologies. I just got back from Girls State (that place I go for 10 days each year and can't ever seem to explain what the heck it is) and my soul got it's fill. Now, it's time for my tummy to get it's fill by making some yummy summer meals.
But, before I start taking photos of each meal Ryan and I gobble up this summer, I will give you a little Cajun food porn from our trip to Jazz Fest 2011 in New Orleans, LA. The music was great... but we all know what my favorite parts of the trip were:
|The first night we ate at Nola (one of Emeril's restaurants)|
|Delicious arugula, watermelon, sliced almond, manchengo cheese salad|
with mint vinaigrette
|My meal: braised pork shank served atop goat cheese polenta.|
It was big. Real big.
|Welcome to Jazz Fest!|
|Fried Sweet Plantains|
|Sweet Potato Pone|
|Crawfish Sausage Po-Boy|
|Fried Green Tomatoes|
