The view from my hotel window yesterday morning:
Abe and I decided to rent a car and hit the road!
There really isn’t much to see in Baton Rouge, other than their awesome signs…
…and impressive university…
…still can’t believe these are frat/sorority houses.
But what boggled my mind was this…
…was NOT expecting to meet Mike at all!!!
Still super full from my X-mas and Birthday feasts, but felt I must order some Red Beans n Rice; one more item off my Big Easy Bucket List (jambalaya, po boy, oyster dressing, and étouffée are all that’s left)
It came with a sad-looking salad – only a few bites, mostly to try the Tabasco Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette
My meal was surprisingly great –
…especially this roll! I wasn’t going to waste stomach room on it, but once I dug my fingers in, I couldn’t stop. Soft, squishy, warm, and almost biscuit-ish!
Abe’s Veggie Sandwich wasn’t as impressive – I had a bite and a handful of french fries
Since we still had the car rental, I had Abe drive around all the places in New Orleans that I want to try, but are too far to walk to.
Just a fantasy. They were all closed.
Not that I could’ve eaten anything, anyway! Wound up just having an apple for dinner…
…and 1/2 a Hubig’s pie for dessert
What was your school’s mascot? High school – Cougars, College – Cardinals. Definitely no live animals.
