Honest Scrap Award + Bayou Boogie

My dear Cajun bloggie friend, Kora, recently presented me with this fantastic award . She is such a sweetheart and her wonderful blog,  Dixie Lust, A Guide to Charming Adventures
and Decadent Pastimes,
is fabulous and filled with many unique Cajun tidbits and creative surprises. Be sure to pay her a visit soon and tell her that I sent you. Many thanks, Kora, for this honor! She says that I am supposed to list 10 random things about myself that my readers may not know, but since that is a lot easier said than done, I will offer my whole blog as representation of this part of the Honest Scrap. This award represents bloggers who speak from the heart and tell it like it is! It is my pleasure to pass this great award to the following 10 Honest Scraps. Please check them out, you'll be so glad that you did !

Bayou Boogie
I had a few requests over the weekend for a little bayou boogie. This is a video clip that I took of one of my favorite bands, playing some good old bayou boogie, at Festival International. Enjoy!

Marguerite I received Clifton Chenier’s CD last Saturday and it is wonderful. Today I was cleaning my spice cabinet and had the music on – I had to stop and dance in the kitchen! La belle musique de la Louisiane!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Congrats to all the blog award recipients!

Since I've been on vacation and don't have any new recipes or pics to post, I thought I'd just direct readers over here where they can find beaucoup recipes to drool over! :)

I love the name of this award-
How cool.

Marguerite said...

Vagabonde- How wonderful! It is such fabulous music that it makes you want to dance. Next, order his "Bayou Blues" CD. Lawdy!

Angie, So glad you're back! I would have passed this award to you, but I knew that you already had it. Your vacation sounds fabulous. And merci for the re-direct!

Laura- You are most welcome, you surely deserve it! The pleasure is all mine, cher!

Hello, I wanted to leave you a comment because I've found your posts really interesting - sometimes they are topics I know little about and we can all learn something new everyday !

Wow! I'm SO glad that you found my Hawaii blog cause it led me back here!
I feel so much similarity between Arcadiana and the real Hawaii. I plan to spend a lot of time here.
Do you watch True Blood? We've got our own food and music too.
Maybe you can help me learn to share my content and smarts for some family ca$h like you do!
Aloha mon ami!!!
