Birdie whipped up some White Chicken Chile for dinner.
Our group grew on Wednesday when Shirley arrived from the Rio Grande Valley and Pat pulled in from west Louisiana.
It was so nice to get together and just spend time relaxing and chatting.
Shirley brought some great tamales with her so I put together a salad and we had dinner.
Our group often has pot lucks but we have a smaller number of attendees this time so it worked out really well for us to each take a turn fixing dinner instead of everyone fixing a lot of food. Usually someone would add a side dish and we were all set.
Wednesday, our first of two guests arrived.....Virginia drove in from Missouri and Rose came up from the Rio Grande Valley. Since they were pressed for time but wanted to come and meet the group, they shared a room at the motel. We had lunch at Hollier's (pronounced Oll Yays). Wednesday's their buffet is barbeque and it was very good although we thought LeBleu's was just a little better. Our waitress was great. When they only had one bread pudding left on the buffet, she went back to the kitchen and found enough for everyone.
We also had fun with the big rocking chairs on the front porch.
Our next stop was the Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point since we planned to do the Creole Nature Trail the next day. The Adventure Point is a new, free, fun attraction that makes it easy to learn about nature and Louisiana's unique culture.
One of the displays even has the aromas from cajun and creole cooking and cards with recipes.
And then there is the zydeco and Cajun band display where you can "play" the instruments and here the difference between the two types of music.
This is really a great place to visit before you visit the trail.
