I had a deeeeelightful first visit to New Orleans this weekend. What a dreamy place!! TY to @A, @racked, @Rose, and @rightordoyle for having awesome New Orleans lists!
  1. An obsession with pralines
    Dammit they're so good, get these things away from me
  2. A southern accent for my inner dialogue
    My Inside Out this week is Britney Spears
  3. Two used cookbooks
    Jewish Cookery (1949) and the Dallas Temple Emanu-el Cookbook (1965), which has a ton of shrimp all up in that?! I got them from the Kitchen Witch, the greatest little used book store in the French Quarter.
  4. Some new vocabulary from my 20 y/o friend, Graham
    24adda54 bf58 49f4 8458 c663017e92ea
    Woh. 26 y/o millennial lexicon is not the same as 20 y/o millennial lexicon. I now say "turnt" and "gucci" kind of a lot now.
  5. Less sensitivity to being called "baby" by strangers
  6. Oyster shucking practice
    245676f0 f76b 4cd7 97dc 5a720a6c060b
  7. An appreciation for grits
    77ce0b8c 77e8 4444 bb56 056b723ca164
  8. A fresh mozzarella and tomato sandwich on a motherfucking DONUT
    730f1087 d8c8 400b b676 d30d373047f7
    At District Donuts. Bow down.
  9. Cauliflower inspiration
    From the curry fried cauliflower at Shaya. It satisfied a deep craving for street shawarma that I didn't even know I had. If all vegetables always tasted this good, I would become a vegetarian.
  10. A wedding cake flavored granita 💃
    87689d6d 4804 4ffc 9028 e356c93d4a4a
    Or actually, they're called sno-balls there and the ice is actually smoother than a granita. It was so refreshing bc it was like a thousand million degrees out.
