That's amazing dude--I didn't even see you there. The Pie Diva musta had you hidden under the table.
It was a good meal though. Huge portions of excellent Cajun and Creole dishes. We started with a plate of Oysters Rockefeller; a half dozen huge
oysters simmered with spinach in a rich white sauce that was later soaked up with a beautiful loaf of warm bread. Other apps that went around the table included Crawfish Hushpuppies, a mound of shelled crawfish tails, and a couple dozen raw oysters.
For entrees, Mrs. Roadhouse and I shared a plate of Jambalaya and an order of seafood etoufee.
After dinner about half the group made their way over to Kopp's for frozen custard--but before we went in, The Pie Diva whipped out a home made King Cake that we sliced up on the trunk of my car in the freezing night air (come to think of it, I didn't see you at Kopp's either). Quijote also brought date appropriate pastries--paczkis (pronounced "POONCH-keys"), a Polish jelly doughnut-like delicacy.
On MilwFoodlovers recommendation we split a tiramisu sundae which capped off the evening. Half gallons of the flavors of the day-Strawberry de Leche and Fat Freddy-made it home to Chicago without melting.
So, was there a lot of Mardi Gras action in Arizona?
