I had a great time meandering thought central and southwestern Louisiana last week. My one regret was that I did not have more time to spend at Loyd Hall and Plantation. I didn't arrive until almost 10:00, and had to leave fairly early; I plan to go back for a longer stay. Perhaps this winter; some of the venues have fireplaces! No sign of the resident ghosts, but I was tired.
I drove back to New Orleans Sunday afternoon with not one, but TWO ice chests full of goodies; the owners at Quebedeaux's Boudin and Cracklins, my first stop on my 5-day trip, sent me off with boudin-stuffed chickens, deer and pork tamales, a boudin- and andouille-stuffed pork roll, stuffed pork chops... in fact, the stuffed chicken breasts are on tonight's menu. Can't wait.
