Goodbye NOLA. We Will Return!

An experiment to see if the pictures uploaded to my Facebook page can be linked here...
The day started with coffee au lait and beignets at Cafe DuMonde. Finally, we made it and it was crowded. We waited in line and listened to the tuba player and the trumpet player that were parked out on the sidewalk playing for tips. The coffee au lait was perfect as usual. 
The French Market has been remodeled. I knew this was in progress but had not been back to see the finished product and it looks great. Much easier to get through it now. Then to the little Daiquiri bar to watch the Saints for two quarters. The crowd was pumped and it was just the place to be with the crowd screaming and chanting for their team.
 We wanted to get to Mother's for a late lunch before it closed so we left the game and ended up watching more of it at Mothers'. The Fendi Special is what we ordered and is their specialty sandwich. Ham, roast beef and "debris' on a hoagie bun with rough cut coleslaw and mustard to  dress it. The "debris' is the part of the roast left in the juice that is shredded and moist and placed on top of the other meats. Just delicious. This is a little FYI. Take a friend and only order one sandwich.There is much to much sandwich for one person.

I was ready to close down this trip after the late lunch and head home. We got home about 1730hrs and I'm suddenly very tired. The bed looks inviting. I'll be asleep as soon as my head hits that pillow. 
Nite ya'all...
