    Triple The Fun With Dilly Green Beans

    Once upon a time I had a brilliant idea.

    Excited by the colors of a bounty of Blue Lake green beans, Royal Burgundy (purple) green beans and Golden Wax beans, my mind wandered to Mardi Gras.....

    These colors were similar to the colorful jester hats, masks, beads, feathers, fleur de lis and King cakes that are everywhere in New Orleans, where my middle son lives.

    Smoke 'em if you've got 'em

    I just spent an incredible 8 days in New Orleans, celebrating my middle son's graduation from Loyola.
    I'm one very proud (and very tired) mama.

    I've been to New Orleans at least a dozen times over the past 15 years, and every time I go, I don't want to leave. When I woke up in Seattle today, I immediately thought of the daily morning walks I had grown accustomed to taking around the neighborhood of the charming apartment we rented.

    During those leisurely strolls one of the best sights (and smells) we encountered was a smoker....right there on the sidewalk!

    I am 99% sure if I set out right now - and walked 200 blocks all over Seattle - I would not be blessed again with the sweet intoxicating smell of hickory in the morning.
    Unless I'm the one who fires up the tradition ;)



    Cajun-style Pickled Green Beans & Carrots


    What is it about that colorful city called New Orleans that gets under my skin? I've visited many times, and each time, I fall in love with NOLA all over again.

     For me, New Orleans is an irresistible combination of live music, phenomenal food and rich culture, all set in a place so photogenic that the only time I set my camera down is when I need both hands to eat a Po' Boy sandwich.
