With this post, the New Orleans series waves goodbye. The last of my vacation memories will be shared, clearing the way for more random thoughts and posts from me. (You didn’t seriously think this would be the last train leaving the station did you?) 😉
Love the combo of brass and woodwind instruments and the toe-tapping melodies. The best part is Jazz music was everywhere – the two varieties I heard were “pre-recorded” and “live”…there’s something special about watching a live performance.
COLORFUL REMNANTS OF MARDI GRAS
The fun and whimsy of purple and green Mardi Gras decorations and colorful beads brightened otherwise gray and dreary days. We visited the week after Mardi Gras, so we missed the crowds of rowdy people (oh, darn) yet we could still feel the festivity. That’s a win-win for me!
Crunchy, spicy, tasty heaven in a bag is what these kettle chips are. Sure, we have kettle chips in Arizona, but I’ve never encountered flavors such as ‘Voodoo’ or ‘Spicy Cajun Crawtater’. These flavors are as Louisiana as alligators! I brought a few bags home for my boys (kids and hubby) and they loved them. Over the weekend, I am stopping by a local specialty store to see if they carry Zapp’s chips. If not, I will order a box online. Yes, they are that good 🙂
We tried beignets at Café Beignet and Café Du Monde. After our unofficial taste-test, our vote for favorite beignet was split – I preferred Café Beignet and my friend liked Café Du Monde better. Either way, the result was the same:
Thanks for indulging me by sticking around as I shared my New Orleans trip. Sunday, I’ll be back to my “regular programming”. (Which may or may not be a good thing :))
P.S. – On a different topic: When a post is published on WordPress, an email goes to subscribers. Does anyone know if an email would be sent to subscribers if I edit a published post? I’ve noticed a few typos on recent posts and I’d love to fix them, but I don’t want subscribers to have to deal with another email. I know, the easy solution would be to proofread better. I’m working on getting more sleep, so that should help 😉
