How to transform a vegetarian.

If the French Quarter didn't have Mudbugs, and muffalettas, I could eat at Johnny's Po-Boy's everyday.

They HAVE to have fried ersters with thin-sliced tomatoes and shredded lettuce (mebbe a little shredded cabbage) and a little mayonnaise. And a touch of Tabasco.

Roast beef po-boys? From N'yawk, mebbe. Sounded more like a Philly Cheesesteak sammich to me. (No sin, just don't call it a po-boy. Where's my gun?)

Nope, you guys don't get any! I'm saving them all for myself.

I've lost 16 pounds so far this year, so I'll save them all a bit longer...

You can keep them sandwiches when it's crawfish season.

And I saw my first sackfull of them in the store yesterday when I went to make the groceries.

Better at Morning Call, another old time New Orleans beignet-and-coffee shrine, and you can add all the powdered sugar you want right at the table at Morning Call. But here's a photo of Cafe du Monde in case you are feeling nostalgic, along with Morning Call:

Cafe du Monde is too touristy for me. I prefer Cafe Beignet, a little bit west of Jackson Square.

By far, fhe best po'boy that I've had is from Rocky & Carlo's, off the beaten' path, in Chalmette. Don't forget to get a side of mac'n'cheese, it is very different than anywhere else you've ever had it. Good God, it's tasty!

My squadron holds functions at Mahony's from time to time. It's pretty darn good, too.

I adore oyster po'boys with lots of Tabasco sauce. My close friend at work is originally from Louisiana and she makes killer pralines around the holidays.

The young wife loves a Po'boy. I personally prefer my oysters on the half shell. Big, fat Blue Point oysters from Long Island Sound. (My town has the most extensive oyster beds in Connecticut).

I put on a lot of weight in NO & Red Stick. Good times!

A warning to all those who crave da crawfish and are tempted by the frozen caught-in-China brands because you can't find the ones from LA--don't bother. They are awful. Considered to be expensive cat food. Get good shrimp instead.

If you're practicing LBYM, then you better wait on the Crawfish for now. They are selling at $3.89/lb. cooked around my house. I'll pass for now, although I won't be able to hold out forever.

Had some great alligator appetizers at Ralph and Kacoo's in NO last Sept. NO was the beginning of my now 29 lb gain.
