Since I live in Texas my family and I had to drive through Louisiana to get where we wanted to go to. I won’t tell you our final destination because I want it to be a surprise. You have to follow my blogposts in order to see~ That is if I can manage to be consistent with these…
I’ve never been to Louisiana before, but I’ve always wanted to go. I liked the landscape even though it was flat with tons of foliage. Everything was so so green!

We had dinner at this place called “Prejeans” and it had a really interesting atmosphere! As you can see in the picture above it had a swamp theme which it was comes to mind when people think of Louisiana. Even the outside had murals of boats and alligators. I took a picture in front of this huge alligator at the entrance and while I was doing so an employee told us that they had a 24/7 webcam for the inside of the restaurant! You can view it straight from the internet! I don’t know the reasoning behind this but that fact added a bit more personality to this already unique location.

I had seafood gumbo and I actually don’t know if it was a full pescatarian meal but it sat well with my stomach so all was good. It was super yummy and spicy! I wish that my stomach was bigger so that I could eat more of it. 😦 It came with white rice and mashed potatoes which were also very good.
Also, my brother ordered fried alligator and I tried it! I was nervous because my stomach doesn’t digest meat well (only fish, which is why I’m pescatarian), but it surprisingly worked for me! It tasted sooooooo good! I could eat it as much as I eat fried shrimp. If I ever go to Louisiana again I am definitely making a stop at Prejeans again!
I don’t remember when we ate a Cracker Barrel but I ordered tea because my brother was sick at the beginning of our trip and passed the illness to me. -_- I’ve never ordered hot tea from there before so it was a nice surprise to be given this. They gave me an empty cup with a tea packet and some lemons with a tiny metal kettle full of hot water! So adorable I had to take a picture.
Those are all the photos I have from Louisiana. We were on the road for a long time so I’ll post about our next stop in my next post! Unless my June 2013 Grateful post comes first…
I’ll try to keep up with this okay?
