I cut my grass, did a little weed-eating, and perused the news (shaking my head at the follies of "mankind") and almost decided to bury myself in my imagination and the world I have created there for awhile ... maybe forever. It's such a lovely place and I don't mind the sometimes loneliness anymore. Instead, however, I decided to treat myself and had a nice lunch:

Catfish Po-Boy


It's big enough for two normal humans or one average Cajun. I made homemade tartar sauce to put on top. I think I'll be checking out for some good prices on shrimp.


Me got fire me can't put it out,
heap firewater gonna make me shout,
I going down and get my squaw,
Me might buy a great big car
I'm gonna do everything I could
Me big Chief, I'm feeling good

I have a custom built world, too. I think it is good therepy. I vacation there often. Lately I have been there a bit more then I should. I can eat Catfish poboys; or, if I prefer, my favorite - a chicken curry pita, to my hearts content . . . and no doctor will yell at me and my Sunshine - the lovely E - she is there with me holding a tirimisu and a Morgans and Diet Coke. I am the king of the place; but a good and benevolent king who loves peace and demands it . . . and hurricanes only happen other places, and it snows in a lazy drift, setteling in around the foggy morning light.


I needed that. Back to work

Ah yes ... the Philosopher King. I have some fresh curry that my brother brought me from a store near his home in Houston. When I use it, the whole house sells of curry for three days. I love it though.

You know Ed, I don't mean that as an empty compliment since I am too honest to send those cheap compliments. But you definitely have the resources of Un Grand Chef! I woudn't even be surprised if you were one, in the past maybe.

I would see you in a grand restaurant, with VIP's!

You have creativity even with food, which is an Art in itself. :D

Oh Jude, that is so sweet of you to say that, and I know mean it. No, I have never been any kind of chef, but I've always felt that if I have the privilege of cooking for someone, I should try to delight their eye as well as their tongue. I think food can be art, as you say, and reflective of the beauty that should be in our daily life. I know I always feel that if someone does something, even a tiny little kindness for me, it is a great compliment, for to give is to love. Some people may not notice such little courtesies, but I try to, and it is so nice when you know someone gets pleasure from them and appreciates them.

Oh yes Ed, I really meant it! :)

But you know what? I think I would see you as the Chef of a Cajun Bistrot, where it's less superficial than the Big Restaurants with VIP's, since we all know you are anything but superficial.

It would be like a nice cozy Boudoir where every customers and friends would feel at home.

I even would volunteer, (no hidden fees since I am friend), for making the pancakes, while you, you would create this appetizing unique sauce to go with it! (or to hide the taste?) lol :D

Little joke aside, I agree that often, it's the littlest courtesies that count the most, in the end. They are the one we appreciate more because of the thoughtfulness and the simplicity.

Oh, what a wonderful idea! Of course I would hire you in an instant. Everyone would come to see the wonderful Juju Venne, so I would have to compensate you very richly.

I even thought of a name for your famous pancakes:

Crepes la Marée!

I would have to create a nice sweet sauce with strawberries and a some orange and lemon peel too, and ginger and cinnamon perhaps ... I think that combination would suit your personality very well. We might even sell the mix by the box. That would surely be a great seller since we could place it on the baking shelves and also the soap and detergent shelves in the supermarket.

Of course we'd have to put your picture on the box wearing a white chef's hat. You are a real genius Jude, and I mean it. And you are too kind. :D

That would surely be a great seller since we could place it on the baking shelves and also the soap and detergent shelves in the supermarket. LOL!

And we could under a note under the product which would say: It is the BEST to clean the pipes, Adios, Pepto-Bismol!.
...Marketing you know? :D

Ed, you remember us talking about "Poutine". It's the meal done with french fries in wich you add pieces of white cheddar cheese and a brown sauce on top of it all. Now that is delicious!

I think you already tried it, but I don't remember clearly.

A lovely day to you!

Hee hee hee! You're so wicked! (And I'm so innocent!) ;)

Now you give me an even better idea. We could have a picture of you playing a flute and dressed like the Pied Piper of Hamelin from the children's story/poem. Do you know that old story? I think you mentioned once that when you were very young you played an elf on a TV storytime-show, so you must love the old fairy tales and stories. Is my memory accurate?

Yest I remember asking you about Poutine very well. We make something similar here although it isn't Cajun, more fast food. Potato po-boys with roast beef gravy and the debris from the roast beef is common too.

I was just mentioning to Jeff I'd like to do a post where I ask my friends to suggest dishes from where they live for me to prepare in my kitchen. I would then post the results and get to eat them too. *LOL*

If you have a suggestion for a homestyle French-Canadian dish for me to try, let me know. It'd be fun for me to see what other regions enjoy, although I may "Cajunize" the recipes a little.

Have a lovely day dear Judith!

Those pickles again! :)

Jan. 13th, 2007 12:12 am (UTC)
And a nice little slather of tartar sauce too. But you're right. I gots to have dem pickles. *laughs*

If I were a rich man, I would offer you a job as my personal chef. If you accepted, that would be great. If you didn't accept, I would use my wealth to travel to Louisiana a lot and hope you'd invite me over for dinner sometimes.

I'll keep my options open ... although I have to warn you, and everyone else who might be interested - I am a very messy cook.
Jan. 13th, 2007 04:56 pm (UTC)
So I'll hire a cleaning staff.....
Jan. 13th, 2007 05:02 pm (UTC)
Too many people get in my way and usually put things where I can't find them. Of course I could train someone who was willing to learn, but she ... or whomever :(P ... would have to be fun, dress appropriately, and have a good sense of humor.
Jan. 13th, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
I'll keep that in mind.....
