Thanksgiving in Cajun Country

By : Chrissy LeMaire | 0 Comments | On : November 30, 2004 | Category : Cajun Country Blog

I just returned from a 9-day vacation in Kaplan/Lafayette and I miss it already. There’s no Thanksgiving like a Thanksgiving spent at home in Acadiana, tee. So much good food shared with so many good friends.. I’m going to get a second home there one day!
Mom (Maw-Maw) and I had a nervous blast on Good Morning Acadiana — we didn’t mess up and mom was even a bit funny in some parts. I heard that I seemed really calm but I was actually terribly nervous. I was sick with a cold too so the combination left me awfully nauseated. Downing about 4 cups of sinfully delicious Mello Joy probably didn’t help either 😉 Here are a few pictures from the show.
Momma spent about 9 hours on Tuesday making the perfect Beef PistolettesSteen’s Syrup CakeCinnamon Pecans and Spicy Crawfish Corn Maque Choux. I would have helped a little more but I was passed out on the couch with bronchitis. I think I got it when I went out duck hunting the morning prior. I had so much fun though so it was worth it… for me at least.
I’m going to send the GMA VHS tape to the RCR co-creator, Brandon, and have him encode it. Once he does, I’ll put it on the web for everyone to enjoy. Thanks Tom and co. for making this such a great experience!
