New Orleans Style Dinner

Posted by Craig Kanalley on 11/14/2008
Tonight a friend upstairs generously made dinner for my roommates and I, as well as some others from the building.

She's from New Orleans and brought some of the culture down there up to Chicago...prepared gumbo for us with chicken and sausage, optional shrimp on the side (I skipped on that), and rice with some specialty sauce. King cake, a specialty in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, for dessert --- basically cinnamon breading with frosting and sprinkles on top...very very good!

It was a great meal and just like my journey to the Arabic restaurant a few weeks ago, it was wonderful to once again experience a little culture and try some new foods. Had never tried this stuff before, but I found it to be very good!! Highly recommended.

We watched a movie after and it was nice to just relax. Big thanks to that friend!!
