So after driving around City Park,
we ended up at Cafe Degas which was excellent. If you haven't been, you should know it is a wonderful little French bistro that has a tree growing in the middle of it! We drank mimosas and feasted on mussels, brie, smoked white cheddar, walnuts, and fruit. BF had seared tuna salad, I had jumbo lump crabmeat salad, and mom had a shrimp, mushroom, bacon omlette.
After brunch, we headed into the Quarter and it was HOT! We shared about 4 hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's to cool off.
We had drinks at the Monteleone's Carousel Bar which was really fun except for the rude bartender. Took forever to get a drink!
On our way home we stopped for crawfish and boiled shrimp. BF loves this stuff. Me? Not so much. Peeling crawfish kills my fingers and boiled shrimp seems to always be mushy.
I prefer the way the do it on the Panhandle (boil it and immediately put it on ice to stop the cooking).
Sunday it was a lot nicer and a lot less humid so we walked around the neighborhood and cooked. I made Apple-Monkey Bread French Toast for breakfast. we had BLT's for lunch and I made BF's favorite roast chicken and gravy with potatoes and corn for dinner. Lemon cupcakes were dessert.
Nothing but salads this week.
