Yesterday I needed the fixings for red beans and rice. I threw my cooler in my car and headed south.
My first stop was the New Orleans Fish Market, for Camellia red beans. They also had shrimp boudin, frozen, from Zummos. Great.
Next stop, Phillips BBQ. Three slabs of ribs, dry and uncut, for my freezer.
Then Petes Hot links. My first time. Petes is across the street from Stevies on the Strip. You order through a window and its cash only. I bought beef links. They also said they had beef boudin. Ive never heard of it so I bought some. But when I got home it was just more sausage.
Passing the Cobbler Lady on Crenshaw I stopped and bought two, one blackberry and one peach. A little soupy but delicious.
Finally, I made it to the Farmer Market at 3rd and Fairfax. I think Huntington Meats has the most beautiful ham hocks Ive ever seen. They also had pork boudin, frozen, from Zummos. I bought some of that. Some andouille and some tasso.
Then I went home and soaked my beans. Today I cooked and tonight I feast.
