I just returned from a fabulous trip in Baton Rouge! It was nice to get away for a couple of nights and see the sites of somewhere I had really never been. Well, I had traveled through Baton Rouge on my way to other places but never actually stayed and seen the city. My great-aunt (Joe Joe) and I love to travel so we decided to take a spur of the moment trip to this cajun city to do a little relaxing, shopping and, of course, eating!! With that being said, I'm going to dedicate this post to all of the delicious bites we tasted while away on our mini vacay. And let me just go ahead and preface...these pictures don't do any of it a bit of justice! It was all fantastic!
Lunch @ Zea Rotisserie Grill
Dinner @ Fleming's Steakhouse
Breakfast @ La Madeleine
....and tomato basil soup to bring home!
Lunch @ Las Palmas Mexican
Dinner @ Gino's Italian Restaurant (a local favorite recommended to us!)
Oh, and the best part of the trip was finding The Ambrosia Bakery!! I can't even begin to explain to you how amazing this place is...pastries, desserts, cakes, donuts, truffles, cookies, trifles, pies, fresh breads...you name it. They even serve breakfast and lunch! Of course , their specialty this time of year is the King Cake so we brought home a few - yes, a few! Collin loves a good king cake, and I join him in that liking :)
We brought home the cream cheese, cream cheese & strawberry, praline and pecan/cream cheese and bavarian cream! YUM!
Look at the cases of goodies!
Oh, and to finish this Monday morning post, I'm going to brag on my wonderful husband. He cooked an amazing meal for us last night...grilled filet with corn, asparagus, fresh bread and onion. He is one good griller, and it was the perfect way to end our busy weekend.
Is your mouth watering yet?! Happy Monday!
