My training is almost complete and we are so ready to begin phase II of this journey. We have had a great time in Mobile but are ready to head to Cajun country. The next 4 days are going to be packed with interesting and fun activities. It is going to be like a 4 day field trip.
For those of you that don’t know, our father is from Louisiana and we have family there. We don’t get to see them often and we cant wait to get there. Our family is so much fun and are the real deal. They are very Cajun and are hilarious. We can’t wait to introduce them to our readers. We are going to take lots of pictures, videos and notes. We are going to share some great recipes with you too. They are great cooks.
Our first stop will be in Cottonport which is a town in Avoyelles Parish, population about 2,500. There we will meet with the Moreau family. The Moreau family owns T Jim’s, a small unique Cajun Market. T Jim’s has been in business since 1964 and has been run by the same family since the beginning of time. This Cajun mart has been a family favorite since we were small children. It has been a family tradition to visit them each trip to stock up on our favorite Cajun groceries before heading back to South West Georgia. We will spend sometime with them learning about the history of their business, learning how they make Boudain and cracklings and tasting their wonderful food. We can’t wait!
