It was another great weekend in Cajun country, and lots of good eating, too! I started my Mother's Day off, a little early and you might say that I went on a weekend binge. On Saturday evening, I went to an early Mother's Day dinner celebration at Copeland's of New Orleans/Lafayette, with my girl-friends. Two of us, split a Fried Seafood Platter and each got a salad and a glass of wine. Divine, cher!
After we were thoroughly stuffed, we went downtown to a fundraiser concert, that my darling daughter was spearheading, at Grant Street Dancehall. There were five bands and it was an absolute blast! Thankfully, I was able to dance some of these calories off. I will be doing a post about the benefit dance, soon.
Then on Mother's Day, we spent the afternoon with family and friends and enjoyed a nice afternoon on the bayou. It was a beautiful day and they were grilling up a storm!
Sausage, Turkey Burgers, and Wings, were all cest bon, cher!
Then, that evening, my dear son took me out to a nice dinner, for some grilled shrimp, steamed veggies, and a sinful dessert. He had to work all day, and had to miss all of the day's festivities, so it was nice to relax and enjoy a fabulous meal together.
Hope that you all had a very happy Mother's Day, too! One of my dear bloggie friends wanted to hear some more "bayou boogie". Here's a little clip of Geno Delafose & French Rockin' Boogie, playing at Whiskey River Landing, in Henderson, a few weeks ago, during Festival International. As always, there was some nitty-gritty dancing going on! Let the good times roll, cher! Hope that ya'll have a fantastic, fun week!
