Good Morning Foodies! I cannot begin to tell you, how impressed I was, with the turnout for the Gumbo Cook-Off, held for cancer-fighter, Miya Norse. The crowd was awesome and energetic. People dug way down into their pockets to help this family. I am so proud of Opelousas citizens and those of the surrounding areas. Hats off, to all those who worked so hard, to put this event on. We must not forget Miya. Now is the time, to keep her and her family in our daily prayers. FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING THAT GOD CAN—IT IS KNOWING THAT HE WILL! I always like to remember this saying, when things get tough: “WORRY LOOKS AROUND! SORRY LOOKS BACK! FAITH LOOKS UP!” I also want to thank the group that bought my Italian Dinner for Eight. I will do my best to give you the best meal I can ever hope to achieve. You did a great thing for Miya and her family. Thank You from the Bottom of my Heart! So as we all know, this coming weekend is the upcoming SUPER BOWL. Not really, because the SUPER TEAM IS NOT PLAYING—but watch out next year—PAYTON/BREES TEAM WILL BE BACK! I am still doing menus that pay tribute to THE BIG EASY! I hope some of recipes will help you entertain your family and friends. Remember as my dad always said, “It is another time that you can come together as FAMILY! Enjoy this beautiful weather! Have a great day!
