Things I Miss About Louisiana

I get nostalgic thinking about these things, in no particular order...

Spanish moss
LSU Tigers
Canes sauce
Water in roadside ditches
Crepe myrtles in every median
Boudin balls
Heat lightning
Back roads
The "Fifth Season"
Wrought iron
Mississippi River
Atchafalaya Basin
The smell of magnolia trees
Zero lot lines
Centenary College
Fresh seafood
Live oaks
Fleur de lis
Natchitoches lights
French Quarter
Drusilla Imports
Courtyards with porch swings
My apartment at Ivy Park

What about you?

Food made by other people is delicious. And by "other people" I mean people paid to cook delicious food.  I have a handful of go-to recipes floating around my kitchen, and one favorite that's actually committed to memory.  But there's just something about being served a piping hot plate of seafood chimichangas after a long day at work...

A Long Time Gone

I've been remiss. I've been lazy. I've been thinking, not doing.
I've been a long time gone from the blog.  I've been making big plans, rebuilding bridges and coming to terms.
