Tonight I had reservations with my baby. I chose something special for our last night in Nawlins. This entire trip has been very special to us as over 6 years ago, when I first met Sue and we decided that maybe we should do this, our first trip together as a couple was to Nawlins.
Today we did the Natchez Steamship tour, which we did 6 years ago. We had a photo done then, and today we took another photo of us together. We stopped at a local eatery which we stopped at then, The Creole Pot. Tonight, it was something special. I chose for our last night together in this wonderful town, K-Paul’s. Anyone who knows me knows that this restaurant is special to me. Chef Paul Prudhomme (may he rest in peace) was an amazing Chef who brought forth the technique of Blackening back in the 1980’s. It revolutionized how we prepared fish, chicken and beef. I did a research paper on this Chef and to have an opportunity to eat here was a special time for us. Tonight, we once again ate at this beautiful restaurant.
Our server, Juan was pleasant yet very professional. We ordered our drinks and browsed the menu. As an appetizer, I chose the Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Chipotle Remoulade. Delicious! Because of its spiciness, Sue did not attempt.
Entrees were what we really embraced. Sue ordered the Paneed Chicken Breast with shrimp and Corn Maque Choix. I had the Blackened Rib Eye with Browned Garlic Butter. Just a beautiful dinner to share with someone who is so important in my life.
Then we had to have dessert because on a night like this, we didn’t really want it to end. I ordered the Creme Marie and Sue had the Sweet Potato Pecan Pie. Like heaven on a fork, these desserts were. Deliciousness in every bite.
Truly a wonderful way to end a fantastic trip to Nawlins. The sights, the food, the music and the people. Most of all, to spend this time with my wife reminds me of just how special she is to me. I love her dearly and look forward to growing old with her.
We will most definitely miss the Big Easy. See you on the flip side, my friend.
