Evan and I spent Christmas in New Orleans together for the first time in 2010. I’ve talked before about how much I love his hometown. The food, the music, the history, the sights—from the French Quarter to the swamps … and did I mention the food? This was my longest trip to New Orleans yet, so over a few posts, I’ll share some photos from our excursions. I did a post last year on the Battle of the Beignets where I touted the merits of my favorite beignet shop, Morning Call, over the ever-famous Café du Monde. I can’t visit New Orleans without going to Morning Call at least every other day.
Just look at all those yummy beignets.
And here they are, hot, fresh, and delicious.
And a half hour later, we had a scrumptious crawfish and shrimp etouffee down the street. Ah, I love it. There wasn’t a single day of our trip that we didn’t have great food. Needless to say, we came home more than a few pounds heavier than when we left.
