The Big Easy on my Mind

The Super Dome- New Orleans, Louisiana
Last weekend Chris and I decide to go play in New Orleans. We decided this Friday around 3 o'clock. Just a little spur-of-the-moment. Chris already had a duck hunt planned for Saturday, so we weren't able to leave until Saturday afternoon. So off we went to New Orleans Saturday afternoon....

We got to New Orleans just at dinner time and Lauren and Nat treated us to a local favorite for dinner. No idea what it was called, but it was good. We watched some football and then went back to the house. Everyone was tired, and we had a big day the next day, so we called it a night.

First, we had breakfast at Refuel. I have been there once before with Lauren and have been craving the cheese grits ever since. They did NOT disappoint. They are so creamy, with just the right amount of grit. Just a bit of salt and pepper on top and they were perfect!

Then on to the main show- the home opener for the New Orleans Saints against the Chicago Bears. To say I was excited is a serious understatement. 

Just Sunday morning with a few of our closest friends. 
Chris and I snagged so pretty good tickets. We didn't buy them until that Friday, but we were pretty pleased.

Sean Payton said ON YOUR FEET!
Drew Brees! 
The Saints played an awesome game! We had 6 sacs and amazing defense! I was so excited to be at the game and even Chris cheered a few times. We were starved after the game so we walked to Landry's Seafood. Chris wanted crab legs and I knew we could find them there.

 And no trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to Cafe du Monde. 
Until next time New Orleans...
