Cafe du Monde

Monday, February 11, 2013



For the 25 years that I have been visiting New Orleans, one of my first destinations has been Cafe du Monde for Cafe au Lait and Beignets. Next week I am headed to New Orleans on business and it will be my first visit sans Beignets.

So it is time for a new tradition in New Orleans. I can still go to Cafe du Monde for my Cafe au Lait but I will leave the Beignets and powdered sugar there. I will go for a walk around Jackson Square and the French Quarter in the early morning with my cup of Cafe au Lait, and I will revel in the sights and sounds (but maybe not the smells!) of New Orleans waking up. I will think about how next time I visit New Orleans, there will be a lot less of me! I can't wait.

    My partner is from Louisiana...and when she goes back, we not so jokingly call it "the food tour" - because there are foods there you just can't get here in the North - most of which are deep fried, with some kind of sauce or gravy, LOL. Enjoy your trip to N.O....and enjoy that cafe au lait!

    Livinmydreams, that reminds me so much of quitting smoking. For years afterward, I would see someone smoking or smell it and I'd want a cigarette so badly. When I finally broke down and had one, it was absolutely foul and not like I remembered smoking at all! In fact, changing my lifestyle to low carb has been a lot like quitting smoking in many ways. Craving and irritability at first, still fantasizing when I see others enjoying theirs, but knowing I'm doing the right thing for my body.

    You know I find that sometimes the smell of the things that I don't eat any more is almost as satisfying now as eating it AND if I do eat it, many times it doesn't taste as good as it smells and as I remember it. Especially the fried things. They just taste of grease.

    It would be hard to pass those up! I can smell them from here.

    Never - but I'm so curious!! I haven't really explored much of the US!

    Have you been to New Orleans before? This is the perfect time of year to go because it isn't steamy and hot yet!
