Lake Charles.... I'm visiting this week for the Lt. Governor's annual tourism summit and, as usual, am having a great time. The hospitality in this part of the state is wonderful, as is the boudin! I forgot to pack my ice chest, so I'm going to have to stop and buy one; conveniently enough, one of the local radio stations has a poll going right now, to determine the People's Choice best boudin. It's a list you should go copy and file away; it's a roadmap of where to stop for boudin as you're driving across south Louisiana.

Speaking of great food, the 3rd annual Fried Chicken Festival dates and deets were released earlier this week; 35 restaurants from 8 states will be participating, including California vegan restaurant, Veganation, with Vegan Cajun Southern Fried Chicken and Waffles. Color me skeptical, but I'll try most anything once. The festival is free, September 22 and 23 in Woldenberg Park in New Orleans

Cajun-Fried Pork Chops

Cajun-Fried Pork Chops

This recipe is from The Pot and the Pallette cookbook - I don't fry food very often, because it's not healthy to eat a ton of fried food, but occasionally I absolutely CRAVE a good fried pork chop or piece of chicken. This one is spicy, so it hits another one of my favorite food points; it couldn't be easier, either.

Colossal BBQ Shrimp with Crab Cake

BBQ Shrimp and Crab Cake Stuffing

Brining shrimp for a few minutes before cooking them makes a tremendous difference in the final taste of the dish. Double the crab cake stuffing recipe, shape the leftovers into bite-sized crab cakes, and freeze them; you'll have a tasty appetizer on hand for a spur-of-the-moment party.

Pork and Smoked Sausage Jambalaya

Pork and Smoked Sausage Jambalaya

This recipe calls for lean pork along with the smoked sausage; by all means, feel free to substitute chicken (I prefer chicken thighs) if you don't want pork on top of pork. Take your time browning the meat and vegetables; that's where a lot of the flavor comes from.
