Cajun Style

Aside from blogging, wearing pretty clothes, and working on my thesis, I love good food especially from local restaurants.

We hit a local restaurant on Saturday called Jimmie's Ladder 11 which is located in an old fire house. The theme of the dinner was Cajun and was sponsored by a Louisiana beer company. There were five courses and each course was accompanied by a beer sample. I don't drink beer so I can't say yay or nay on any of them but on to the food!

First course was gumbo which was delicious! Not too spicy with lots of meat.

Salad was nothing special. I do not like fruits or nuts on my salad and this one had both. But it gets points for feta.

Paisano past chips-deep fried pasta covered with cheese and topped with sun dried tomatoes, onions and green peppers. Nom nom nom.

The next course was a chicken over pasta with a vodka tomato cream sauce, but I forgot to take a picture of it. :(

Lastly was cheesecake with strawberry sauce. Again, yummy. 

I wore a 50s vintage dress for this evening. It's a smidge too big, but that's a good then when you're going out for a five course meal!

Overall, it was quite a nice evening!


  1. The dress and the food! Yummy all around!

  2. Ahh, you always look so cute! I would have been wearing jeans and a bib.

  3. Did you make this dress? Lovely print:)

  4. Cute dress, and I agree with about the fruit on salad, not a fan either.

  5. Really lovely vintage dress - the black trim around the collar is so eye-catchingly pretty.

    That look like an awesome meal! I love fruit and nuts on my salad, so I think that course plus the dessert would have probably been my favorites of the five. They all sound fabulous though!
