Reunited and it feels so good!

Tomorrow night, we are gathering for a reunion and scrapbooking gathering in honor of our NOLA trip. Since I (Amy) don't scrapbook, I will be attending for the food and fellowship. Ha!

In true Baptist fashion, everyone is bringing a dish for a small scale, Sunday evening covered dish dinner. When my daddy was pastor @ Meadowbrook Baptist church, these gatherings were known as Love Feasts. Just a bit of trivia for you - BONUS!!
Can you guess what I am bringing?

Betsy and I are so happy to welcome you to our blog. We are excited about this joint venture where we will be sharing our adventures in all things food-related. We plan on trying new places and offering our opinions on their fare, as well as our faves of the tried and true places we love to go to on a regular basis. (P.S. We are calling ourselves The PDs - short for Preachers' Daughters.)

I'll start....

Right now we are on vacation in New Orleans, and will be posting about our favorite treats and eats from this wonderful place.

Last night we had dinner at Mulates and while our dinner wasn't anything to write about - they were having a bad night - I must tell you about the Butter Pecan Pie. sinfully delicious! It tasted like a warm praline. We also sampled the Key Lime Pie, which was pretty delicious too. My parents recommended this place to us for the food and the atmosphere. We enjoyed watching folks dance to the Cajun music the band played, and the foreigners who awkwardly tried to dance and sing along to Lousiana Saturday Night. Why are foreigners so awkward? Do they think the same of us when we visit their countries?

Today we visited 2 plantations, one being Oak Alley. Isn't this gorgeous??

They are known for their Mint Juleps, and since we had never tried one, we all decided to go for it. I tried the Bourbon Twist, which is a Mint Julep with a splash of lemonade. It was pretty good. Betsy and Christa tried the non-alcoholic Mint Juleps, and thought they were very sweet. Cheers!
We may venture out to Cafe Du Monde for beignets tonight as a night cap. Yummo.....

Stay tuned for more....and thanks again for checking us out. Show us some "Follow" love!
