As many of you noted, I took a week off last week; a trifecta of things I couldn't do anything about got in the way. But it's gratifying to know you miss me! The March/April issue, final issue of my 4th year of publishing, is in the shipping channel; happy anniversary, and thanks to all of you who subscribe.
We're enjoying beautiful weather this week; there was a seafood boil over the weekend for the next issue of the magazine. Crawfish, shrimp, crabs, and char-grilled oysters; in the pot before the seafood, sweet potatoes (yes, sweet potatoes, throw a few in the pot next time you boil), pineapple, boudin, red potatoes, and a few other delicacies. That was my second round of crawfish so far this year — they're so good. A few strings were pulled to get our hands on a bushel of crabs this early in the season; it helps to have connections!
My friends over at VisitLakeCharles.com have a new video out celebrating the cuisine of the region, from rustic to sophisticated, seafood to boudin. Of course there's a great soundtrack too; I warn you, though, it will make you hungry, and ready for a trip to Lake Charles, which you should be anyway, after reading the Destination: Lake Charles in the current issue of the magazine.
Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and as always, let me know what's on your mind.
