Weekend photos….

There goes another food filled weekend….

Told ya so!

1. We FINALLY tried Lucy’s Fried Chicken

2. The fried chicken, sad to say the breading was SOOOOOOO salty….it’s bad when Dave complains about salt

3. Collard greens, stole the show….mac & cheese, next please :-/

4. I had the Lucy Basilia (Dripping Springs Vodka, Honey, Lemon Juice, Basil Leaves & Blackberry)…mmmmm

& Dave had an Austin Beer Works – Pearl Snap.

Although we weren’t thrilled with our first visit, Lucy’s has a playful menu…we will be back for another try…maybe for lunch….I’d like to try the “Shoofly” pie.

5. Cajun crab cakes from the seafood counter at Whole Foods

6. Dave made Mr. B’s BBQ shrimp…..we’re missing New Orleans, can you tell?

What yummy goodness did you enjoy over the weekend?

The Big Easy

Two restaurants I HIGHLY recommend in New Orleans….


(we made our way through the kitchen to exit the restaurant, I wanted to kiss the chef/s)

We tried Mr. B’s for lunch and I think I found my favorite savory dish in NOLA

Mr. B’s BBQ Shrimp

(just know that worcestershire and butter are 2 prominent ingredients)

They bib you up, so no holding back….dig in and enjoy the intense flavors in this dish….

I can’t wait to go back for more!

We also shared the Gumbo Ya-Ya & Crispy Fried Oysters….mmmmm

Love the presentation

& Dinner @ Award winning Commander’s Palace…need I say more.

We chose THE CHEF’S PLAYGROUND menu, here’s some of my faves from this 9 course meal

Veloute of Blue Crab (aka de-lish-us soup topped with caviar, um yeah)

Foie Gras “Du Monde” (the mini-beignets and cafe au lait made me fall in love)

Creole Bread Pudding Souffle “The Queen of Creole Desserts”

I die for this amazing-ness, especially the whiskey sauce topper

Now that I’ve made myself drool over this culinary magic….I leave you with this quote….

as I struggled physically & emotionally through this amazing meal at Commander’s Palace, Dave suggested:

“You have to submit to the food, allow yourself to respond in your on way!” (I love this man)

Happy Eats to All.
