Jacques Imo's Cafe, one of my favorite places of ALL TIME would have food there. During French Quarter Fest I can't wait to get their duck poboy. I know I can get it any time I want from Crabby Jack's, but what can I say, I am a sucker for tradition. Back to the point - I LOVE their Alligator Sausage Cheesecake. That was what was on the menu yesterday. Sarge made me promise to bring him some home, no matter WHAT it was. I bought a little place and here's the important part. I had a TASTE. Just a little bit of it and it tasted soo wonderful. Then I wrapped it in the foil I carried in my ice chest and toted it home for Sarge. He loved it. I was VERY proud of myself. Two weeks ago I would have eaten the whole thing, so fast I would not have even tasted it. That little taste satisfied my cravings.
For dinner last night we went to Short Stop Po Boys and picked up a couple of poboys for dinner. My first instinct was to get a regular sized one, and a coke, and chips, and something fried. But I got a small roast beef. Not the healthiest, but I REALLY wanted it and it was REALLY good. I ate well all week. I didn't DESERVE it, but I really wanted it and I got a small one, not a regular or large, and not fried shrimp.
Now, off to the Parade to make some groceries!!!
