what's cookin' wednesday - creole fare

i spent last week in shreveport, louisiana for a conference.  although i could have done without the heat and humidity, i am happy to report that i ate very well while i was there.  and by very well, i do not mean healthy.  if you've never tried creole food, you are missing out.  i was also happy to hit up one of my favorite breakfast chains not available on the west coast.

here are some highlights from the week...

mussels diablo

quail fajitas
crawfish etouffee w/ dirty rice

cracker barrel

and this has nothing to do with food but i wanted to share a side story about a little shopping trip.  we were at the mall (just hiding out in some air conditioning!) one evening when we happened upon a store selling crazy kiddie tutus and outfits like you see on toddlers in tiaras.  true to southern redneck style though there was a section of "hunting" outfits for little ones.  i didn't end up getting it for pandi.
