Beignets and Bourbon

April 1, 2008

After a long week I found myself relaxing in New Orleans with friends. Yes, I realize that relaxing isn’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of the crescent city.

After a long week I found myself relaxing in New Orleans with friends. Yes, I realize that relaxing isn’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of the crescent city. Shouldn’t I have been partying on Bourbon street you say. No.
Luckily I’m hangover free, but of course I managed to indulge in other ways that my taste buds and belly thanks me for. As always I seemed to plan our little mini break around meal time.

The view from our hotel room. We stayed at the W hotel in the French Quarter on Chartres street. I love this hotel chain.

One of the things I love about the W are the beautiful floral arrangements.

I love the little camera necklace the model is wearing on the front page of the Surface magazine I found in our room. My birthday is almost here if anyone needs any ideas.

We spotted this nun on her way to Saint Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. She has a tough job in this city.

Saturday for lunch we found ourselves at Mother’s, a whole in the wall joint specializing in the wonderful cuisine of New Orleans. We moved quickly though a line of people eagerly awaiting Jambalaya, etouffee, gumbo, and po boys.
Chaos reigned in the popular eatery with slopping spoonfuls of gumbo and baguettes hurriedly sliced and slathered and stuffed to order.
I opted for an oyster po boy and a bowl of seafood gumbo.

I love the strand of cheep white beads hanging from the flaking sign.

Sunday morning found us at The Cafe Du Monde. I first ate at the cafe when I was twelve and it hasn’t changed a bit. The same line out the door, powdered sugar dusting the floor, sticky tables and chairs, and sugary fingerprints on the window glass. Yummy!

More powdered sugar please!

I need one of these outfits for The Atlanta Steeplechase!

This scene is a lot like the city of New Orleans. The city like the wisteria is very beautiful but at the same time is as grimy as the trash can.

A little bit of Bourbon Street.
