As I sit at my desk this morning, I reminisce about my recent trip to New Orleans. Praline in hand, I slowly inhale as I breath in the sweet, rich scent of this tasty treat before taking a bite and chasing it with my cup of coffee. This trip allowed me to try so many samplings of what New Orleans’s food scene truly offered: seafood, fried food, sweets, and more. As I nibble each bite, I want to savor this moment.
Throughout this trip, I took a food journey. I tried many firsts: grits, crawfish, alligator, beignets, and pralines. Being a bit of a foodie, I enjoyed each new experience and am inspired to try a few in my own home–maybe something for a future post.
This is my last post about all the new things I was able to try on this short and much needed getaway. Hopefully, you enjoyed a look at this unique city. I’ll leave you with five general but uniquely New Orlean things I loved experiencing while there.
