I love this time of year. Even though it’s hot as heck, the festivals that this time of year brings, makes all of that heat worthwhile. Yellow Jacket, Navy Seal and I went to the French Quarters for the festivals and let me tell ya… we had so much fun! It was really cloudy before we got there so, we brought some rain gear with us. Good thing we did because, as soon as we hit the Quarters…it started raining. That didn’t stop the show though…I was near some serious food and crazy-great Cajun-Zydeco music, there was no way we were turning back.
We walked through the tomato fest first and I spotted some fried green tomatoes. Since I’ve never had them before, I decided to give them a try.See the dude in the yellow raincoat? That’s NavySeal. There was no way I was standing in the rain to get them tomatoes! They were great…didn’t get to keep the dish too long though.
We kept it light, just walking and eating our way though the Quarters…good thing we were WALKING because,
I went back THREE TIMES for this dish!
The music out there was off the chain! Next time, Imma have to video this stuff because, Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers brought the house down! They played, When The Saints Go Marching In…Zydeco style and started a 2nd line. Folks were doing the Cajun two-step and anything else they wanted to do.
It was just a really wonderful day out there…nobody cared about the rain. Food, friend, family and fun. Hot fun in the summertime had by all.
