Broussard, Louisiana


April 2007


In 1973-1974 we were stationed in New Orleans where we acquired a taste for Louisiana Cajun cooking.  We are fortunate enough to have friends in the area, some that we met in the Rio Grande Valley the last couple of years.  Nothing is more Cajun than crawfish and Jimmy and Janelle did up a feast for us when we passed through.  Although Jimmy's cousin Paul is in the midst of medical treatments, he was able to pop over and join us for the feast.  His wife Gracie had surgery that morning, so we did not get to see her this time.  Ira and Jan live in a nearby town, so we brought Jimmy and Janelle and met them for lunch at a little Cajun cafe for brunch, not far from the Evangeline Oak tree.
