Wednesday, February 24 – In search of Beignets


Thank you Donna from Alabama, I am glad you enjoy reading of our experiences.

Today we didn’t go out until a little before noon. We headed to the ferry, paid our $5.00 to park and took the free ferry ride to New Orleans.

We were in search of Beignets at Cafe Du Monde at the Riverwalk. Beignets were also brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. These were fried fritters, sometimes filled with fruit. Today, the beignet is a square piece of dough, fried and covered with powdered sugar. They are served in orders of three.

Nice fountain in front of the entrance


After our snack we walked around the shops. We have been in search of new salt and pepper shakers and found a set in one of the shops.

I also took these pictures that were on display in one of the galleries, I just thought they were a good likeness.

After we tired of the shops we walked over to Harrah’s. We played the slots for about a hour. I doubled my $5.00, but Jesse lost $10.00. All in all it cost us $5.00 for a hours worth of entertainment.

Then we went in search of something to eat. I didn’t feel too much like walking. It was cold outside and the wind was blowing.

We decided to either eat at home or find something on the way home.

We ended our day at Texas Roadhouse, you can’t go wrong with them. Jesse said it was the best steak that he had in quite awhile. I had ribs and chicken that were also very good.

We came home and relaxed in recliners for the remainder of the evening.

My mouth is now watering for the beignets...They are so good in New Orleans.
We loved our dinner at the Texas Roadhouse the other night. It was the best steak I have had in awhile also.
Safe travels....
