Last night we went with friends to Brigtsen's to enjoy the COOLinary menu-- it was hard to pick among all the choices. Thankfully, everyone at the table was willing to share, so we got a little taste of all of it.

Whether it's COOLinary here in New Orleans, Eat Lafayette, Tammany Taste of Summer on the Northshore, or your own town's summer restaurant promotions, it's a good time to get out and support your local restaurants.

This weekend I'm heading up into Mississippi for my Great Aunt Mary Alma's send-off. She made it to 100 years and 5 months; she was a school teacher in her younger years. She loved children and mentored untold numbers of young people over the many decades. She lived a good life, she will be missed.

Pasta with Shrimp in Tomato Cream

Pasta with Shrimp in Tomato Cream

This is a simple dish that packs in a ton of flavor. It comes together in the time it takes to boil a pot of pasta; have a green salad ready for a side dish and serve with plenty of French bread for the sauce.

Fresh Off the Cobb Corn Chowder

Fresh Off the Cobb Corn Chowder

Make this one while the summer sweet corn is still in season. Delicious as is, by all means feel free to stir in some cleaned Louisiana shrimp just a few minutes before you remove it from the heat..

White bean and Sausage Gratin

White Bean and Sausage Gratin

 This versatile dish can be loaded up with greens, or not, as you prefer. As sized, it makes 6 servings, which sounds like a lot, but it will keep for several days and reheats well.
