We are BACK after a few days in "The Big Easy." It was our first trip to New Orleans and hopefully not our last! We had a packed few days and don't feel like we missed a thing. Here's a brief recap of our whirlwind tour...
Of course we had to sample the local fare, with hurricanes and biegnets to name a few.
We loved soaking up the culture the city had to offer and I was impressed by all of the creativity shown.
We ate at a few great restaurants.
And were able to visit a very special place where my cookies had been in the past.
We threw beads off of a Bourbon Street balcony.
And while we were certainly not their good luck charm, we cheered on my beloved Hokies.
It was a wonderful way to start the new year. Within hours of stepping off of the plane I was back to baking. Sometimes all you need is a little time off to rejuvenate! I have SO much to show you over the next few months.
Thank you for your kind comments last week - hope your 2012 is starting out right!
