The Food I Ate On My Birthday Trip Edition
Look, I've been doing excellent on my diet/exercise plan since graduation, so I decided that I would let myself be as bad as I wanted to be over the weekend while in New Orleans...and I was...so, so bad. It was fantastic.
|Steamboat Natchez, the only authentic steamboat left on the Mighty Mississippi|
Later on that day (still my birthday), we took a ride on Steamboat Natchez, and sat ourselves right in front of The Texas Bar. I had a Whiskey Sour made with Maker's Mark...and it was fantastic! The best I've had.
We also ate our Lunch/Dinner aboard Steamboat Natchez. It was a lot of food, so we really didn't feel like eating again later that evening. What you see there is a truly Southern meal of Fried Chicken, baked beans, mac and cheese, some creamed spinach, cornbread, cole slaw, and bread pudding. I would never in a million years eat this normally...it's just too much food (even though it served as two meals) and too many kinds of food that I'm trying to not eat. It was delicious though...
The next day, I had stuffed french toast that was almost as orgasmic as my Nutella crepes...and some hash-browns and eggs....and I washed it down with this...
|Vanilla Iced Coffee|
|The Gumbo Pot|
|Shrimp Po Boy|
It was all good food...as evidenced by the 5 lbs I gained! No worries...I'll work it off this week!
