Louisiana Daily Photo: Cajun Meat Market in Houma

If Cajun Meat Market opened in New Orleans there would be lines down the block. Out in Acadiana they do a steady trade but
nobody’s going to mistake them for Franklin Barbecue anytime soon.

Louisiana Daily Photo: Huey P. Long Bridge

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

In 2011, the American Society of Civil Engineers dedicated the Huey P. Long Bridge as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.

That’s a really big deal. There are only four structures in Louisiana that have been accorded the honor (Eads South Pass Navigation Works in New Orleans; McNeill Street Pumping Station in Shreveport and Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge in
New Orleans are the other three.)

When we need a whole hog to throw on our backyard pit we call T-Boy up so he can slaughter one for us. While we’re out in Acadiana we always pick up a heavy freight of boudin and a 20lb bag of rice to tide us over til we can make our next run.

Louisiana Daily Photo: Hansen’s Sno-bliz

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

I used to drive to Hansen’s in uptown New Orleans a few Wednesdays a year to get a Bananas Foster snoball. Unfortunately they quit running this particular special on Wednesdays and started doing it when fancy struck. After two swings and misses I quit going to Hansen’s.

Lovely people, great snoballs, if y’all hear about them returning the Bananas Foster to Wednesdays please holler.

Louisiana Daily Photo: Washington Square in New Orleans

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

The old days when you went to Washington Square to score a lid of grass or pick up a floozy are long gone. A recent morning ramble through the old park found a few crusty, train-hopping Mohicans crashed out from a long night of drinking, and a fresh crop of mushrooms sprouting up out of the dirt.

This will be the only nature shot you’ll ever see on Chowpapi.
