looking forward to some good sausage and boudin balls while down there.

What are you referring too..?

 

Boudin balls is a coonazz sausage not in a casing but in a ball shape about 2" across, usually with something in the center, pepper cheese or some type of cheese, then fried. They are good, the the rest is just sausage but well seasoned in many different flavors but all good. Some of it has rice with the meat in it similar to jambalaya, or the red which has no or very little rice and blood from the pig, sometimes called blood sausage.

 

But there all good, they cooked gumbo yesterday while we watched football, plus they grilled some boneless chicken breast stuffed with cheese and wrapped with bacon, very good.

The food at the wedding was great, all locally made by a friend of the groom, plus an open bar, there were a few casualties by the end of the night.

 

The place is called Acadian Village, 32 acres of cabins from the 1800's.  http://acadianvillage.org/

 

The little church in the village, the wedding party about to go in.

The next pic is a little ways down the path the place for the reception,  it was cool which was good because inside was crowded and the tables outside were full also. Very nice wedding.

I've never seen boudain that looked like that.  Normally it IS in a casing.

Your right, I meant boudain balls, had to go back and add the balls word...that looks good wish I had some now.

 

Also found out it was spell check that changed it to boudin and I didn't catch it. 

 

I have not any I didn't like but this guy has some good stuff.

Never knew boudain had any balls...what about FEMALE boudains?  Don't make me raise the sex-discrimination flag in here!

I would bet some day there will be a shortage of boudains, since so many of those parts have been removed.  Depending on the college campus or city we could get in trouble for even putting a label on either, Boudain dysphoria. :o

has to be good.  The little restaurant that opened for me after hours, in LA, was on BillRd.  I call that a good sign. 

  I have time to tell a story.

Was driving boy's car to him in NC. Wanted something decent to eat... not macs or.  Turned off somewhere outside of Shreveport and started looking. Didn't see anything, so a stopped at a mechanic's shop [or the like] and asked. Well, I found the place. Empty parking lot. Door locked.  Sitting in the car, ponder my next move when I see a kid poke his face from around the back corner of the building. 

Someone is "home".

 I walk around back... Knock on the door. A couple come out and explain that they are closed from lunch and until dinner... I talked them into a plate of leftovers. They set a table [the chairs were on the table for cleaning] and we talked while I ate. Pie and sweet tea to go.  I gave them a sizeable tip. What they did was above and beyond. They could have been making tracks.  They were ready to leave when I showed.

Ok guess I need to get back to work since I spend half of the day reading and drinking coffee, but the music is playing and the coffee was good, could be worse.

 

Posted because it's was close to 24 hours since the last post here we have some standards even if there low.

.... o O (Coffee good)

 

but getting there (this morning) caught me off-guard.... I mean, the weather is perfect... somehow I overslept, had 30 minutes to get to work, made a modified 1 1/2 instead of 2 cup's... then the cat kept messin' with me, doing that thing like - where's mine... so I grabbed his bowl off the counter, (boom) it stuck me, cat's don't drink coffee... and luckily I returned the coffee pot to the maker, got the cat food for the cat... then got me a good full cup of coffee... and the rest is History !

That is a picturesque village, your photos look like they could be used to advertise that LARC place.

Agenda for the day

go to the store.

Almost out of drugs. Tobacco and coffee beans. Wonder what we have for a selection. They're all good. I'm not crazy about dark roasts and tend to steer away from FrenchRoast and CapeHorn. CapeHorn is a DARK roast and if you are in the mood, is excellent

 

Have to get the wife to the airport tomorrow AM....  We need to be out of the house at 5AM.She changes planes in Dallas.... to a regional carrier. I suggested she get assistance getting from A - B there. Only an hour between flights. Last time I was there, faced a similar deal. And I was most happy for being escorted. If I had been a healthy young OJ Simpson, I would not have made the connection.

 

wife asked if I wanted her to bring anything back...

"No. Anything I want would be too big, heavy or electronics".  do ya think the airlines would be OK toting a pair of KHorns?

Well, I was born
To have adventure
So I just followed up the steps
Right past her fuming incense stencher
To where she hung her castanets

Homemade Hot Mustard

At dinner the other night, we had home smoked ham and bratwurst-among lots of other seasonal foods- I was missing home made hot mustard.

I used to make my own but it's been a long time.  I remember---

Keen's dry mustard

Honey and or brown sugar

Vinegar

I don't remember any other ingredients or ratios.

Anybody?

Keep the sugar out.  Hot mustard just needs mustard and water/wine, vinegar if you prefer.
