What We Ate This Week 4~26

This week was an odd one for our menu. I only cooked four days out of the week because of our trip to New Orleans. I wanted to leave the house with an empty fridge so had to cook accordingly.

I have this thing with not having any leftover food sitting in the fridge while we are gone. It's partially because I know that if it's there for more than two or three days we won't eat it when we get home but it's also because I like the leaving the house clean and that clean extends to the inside of my fridge. 

Yes, I know I'm a touch odd.

Sunday: Mike and I found ourselves kid free after a long day of working on his parents rent house property so we went out to eat. We opted for Hibachi again. I might be slightly obsessed with their strip steak and scallops. 

Monday: We had a late Easter ham, the last of the fresh garden butter beans, and mashed potatoes. 

Tuesday:Mike wanted some Cajun-Creole food so we had Dirty Rice. I cook ours a little different than most by adding smoked sausage links in with the ground beef. So yummy. For a side, we had country-style green beans. 

Wednesday: We had fried catfish fillets, fries, and hushpuppies. I was hungry and kind of forgot to take a picture before diving in. There's nothing quite as good as the first fish fry of the year except maybe the first crawfish boil. 

Thursday: We hit the road as soon as Kyla was out of school and stopped to eat at a favorite joint on the way *out of Louisiana. Big John's has some of the best burgers you'll ever eat. They aren't fancy but they are good.

Friday: Our first night in New Orleans. So many amazing food choices to choose from it's always hard to just pick. We ended up somewhere new, The Gumbo Shop on St. Peter. It was so good, like better than good. I chose to go with the Creole Combination Platter and wasn't disappointed. We topped off dinner with a bread pudding smothered whiskey sauce.

: We aren't quite sure where we are going to eat yet. We may eat at Deanie's, which we consider a must eat for anyone who has never eaten in New Orleans before but Mike's also found a place that a lot of local's swear by called Seither's Seafood. And with food that looks like this, I may push him to go.
