With the gorgeous Spring weather we've been having, I have been grilling up some fabulous, spicy shrimp. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare seafood and it is out of this world! Once I start eating these, it's very hard to stop! And the scrumptious Lemon Remoulade Sauce is perfect for dipping. So easy and delicious! Serve with a big tossed salad and garlic bread and a nice glass of white wine. Cest bon, cher! Bon appetit!

More Cajun Fun on the Bayou!
We had an absolute blast at the first Bach Lunch of the season, on Friday, at Parc Sans Souci, in downtown Lafayette. It's a Lafayette tradition to go to this wonderful outdoor concert and lunch, at noon on Fridays, to kick off the weekend a little early. William A. Thompson and his New Orleans Jazz Band entertained the crowd.
Then later that evening, we went to the T.G.I.F block party at Downtown Alive, at Parc International. This is another weekly, Lafayette tradition where people go to hear and dance to great live music and visit with friends and family. It was a beautiful evening and The Eric Lindell Blues Band was rockin' the crowd.
And for your enjoyment, here's a little clip that I took of a Cajun two-step. Oh the life of a Cajun, is oh so fun! Let the good times roll, cher!
Wishing you all a wonderful Springtime week! Merci beaucoup for coming by!
HAPPY SPRING, YA'LL!
