Our author writes – “After hurricane Andrew in New Iberia I remember eating so many cold sandwiches, which I’m not too fond of on a good day, lol. So when hurricane Ike battered Brazoria County Texas when we lived there we knew how to he better prepared, except for the devastating damage of course. Some things can never be replaced….so comfort foods would be great I think.” #LouisianaFloods
