Okay, we're moving back to the southwest after spending six years in New Orleans. Everybody says "you're going to miss the food." Now, we can make jambalaya, red beans and rice, gumbo, and barbecued shrimp better than the versions served in most restaurants. We know that fresh shrimp will be more expensive and harder to come by, but other than that, we can't think of much that we will really miss. Neither of us is particularly sad about never having another po-boy. I suppose we might miss muffalettas, but since we eat them about once a year, that shouldn't pose a big problem. Same for beignets. No more crawfish boils, but we've had our share of them, and they're fun, but that's one of those "been there, done that" kind of things for us.
Yes, we know this is heresy. Luckily you can't stone me through e-mail. But I thought I would take a poll: If you were to move away from Louisiana, what food would you miss? (Not fair to say "my mama's (whatever).)
