I know it's been a while, but the holidays swamp everyone, do they not? These photos were taken around Thanksgiving at my grandmother's house in Louisiana. I was born in the boot state, and it's a place that's close to my heart. I always feel so at home when I visit my family (and a large family it is). Anyway, these are some photos from my grandma's yard, home, and the swamp in the surrounding area. Beautiful!
Romaine hearts! Perfect for making homemade hummus wraps (YUM).
Talk about bounty! It's one of my goals to have a garden this spring.
While in Louisiana, we went Cajun dancing, and my photo was even in the local paper! We also ate some good, gooood food. Gumbo, sweet potato casserole, homemade hummus, pepper jelly, fruit galore, and even some sugar cane. I'm a Cajun girl at heart!
I have some crafty projects in the works for this blog, and I'm going to attempt to make Moroccan stew this week, plus homemade sushi, so look forward to more from me soon!
