Since I have been so preoccupied with getting ready for my very first craft show I decided to do something simple this month for my something new. I tried a new restaurant.
I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. I love Cajun food and I saw that my friend Erica and her husband go to this restaurant often so I invited her to go with me. She and I both had the crawfish trio.
It had crawfish gumbo, fried crawfish tails and crawfish etouffee. The gumbo was alright, it wasn’t anything special. I mostly just ate the crawfish out of it. The fried tails were excellent, the batter was really nice and they were wonderfully salty. The etouffee was good, I appreciated that the roux was lighter. Most Cajun restaurants I’ve eaten at, their etouffee has a really dark roux and it’s too smokey for me. I like a lighter, more savory taste to it. I usually try to keep it light when I make it.
I really enjoyed sitting down with Erica and talking about books and TV shows. She and I have very similar tastes in these types of things so it was nice to just enjoy myself and her company for a few hours.
Have you tried anything new this month?
