If you know me and my friend Kari, you know that we like to eat!! So when we went our trip to the Big easy I decided to take photos and share all the yummy thing's we ate!!
Our first meal in New Orleans was Friday night for dinner. Our driver told us about Mother's Restaurant.. and he did not disappoint!!! It was by far the best
meal of the trip!. We split a Po Boy with roast beef and ham on it as well as a dish of Jambalya!
Next stop was Poppy's Time Out at the river walk where we enjoyed local brewed beer.
For breakfast on Saturday morning we had the breakfast buffet. It was very good.
For lunch we were invited to a luncheon and had gumbo, fantastic fried chicken and scrumptious dessert! The drink is a long island iced tea with juice instead of soda!
For dinner Saturday night we ate vendor food at the Superdome (not worth a photo) but when we got back to the hotel they were serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches like they do every night.
Even after drinking on Bourbon street all night Saturday night... when we went to the Sunday brunch we had mimosa's!! And we also the best bananas foster waffle ever,
Since we ate breakfast at lunch time we grabbed a slice of pizza at the mall and headed over to Jimmy Buffet! When we got back to the hotel we once again enjoyed some PB&J.
On Monday I forgot to take a photo of breakfast but it looked really similar to the others :) However, for lunch/dinner we went to a place called Jackson's Brewery and had bacon wrapped shrimp that were fried and waffle fries with a jambalya wrap!
After the above meal we went directly to Cafe De Monde which is a MUST DO when in New Orleans. They serve Beignets which are fried dough covered in powdered sugar and OH SO GOOD!
and for our last meal in New Orleans we had the breakfast buffet. We were planning on going back to Mother's for one last Po Boy but our tummy's had had enough!
What a deliciously fattening trip!!
