Deeeeep breaths…

The Saints game is about to start. As such, I have no time nor the presence of mind to write a real post, so I’ll leave you with a few pictures and a promise to do better next weekend. I’ve been creatively moribund since the holidays, but hope it’ll pass soon.


Got my gris-gris going first thing this morning with shrimp & grits. I hope the spirits aren’t too upset that my coffee lacked chicory.


And since it’s old home day, why not have a little old-fashioned banana pudding with Nilla Wafers? (I’ve been playing with the recipe I got from my mom, who got it at her wedding shower, but it’s not quiiiiite there yet. Will post it once it is.)


And on the topic of comfort foods, all I wanted last weekend was graham crackers and milk.


OK, that’s not entirely true. These Szechuan noodles with shrimp really hit the spot.


How could they not?

Time for a beer, maybe some wings. Geaux Saints! No matter what happens tonight, nothing will ever beat this fan video or the run that inspired it:

  1. Amazing victory! But now they must take on my beloved Colts. Should be an epic showdown. I’m already thinking about my menu.

    Aside from football – all of your food in this post looks positively amazing!

  2. Thanks, Alec! It really pains me to root against Peyton, but I’m afraid it’s got to be done this time.

    What’s on the menu? Any traditional foods you need to include? I’m thinking (if I don’t fly to New Orleans to watch the game with my family) jambalaya or muffulettas, plus a king cake.

  3. ah, graham crackers and milk – that was your husband’s bedtime snack when he was about three years old
