2912 Trip - Day 6 - October 8

We were going out of the FQ today, so we had a light breakfast at Croissant D'Or. Peggy had a pastry called Frangipane named for the almond creme filling. I had a blueberry croissant. We split a coke. Our tab was $7.00.

After hitting a few thrift stores on Jefferson Highway, we stopped by Haydel's Bakery and found they were closed on Monday. We decided to have lunch at Crabby Jacks, since I had heard it was good. We had their most famous po boy - Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade. Sounded good and tasted even better, although it was one more messy sandwich to eat. Our lunch here cost us $15.00 and was well worth it. I hope to get to go back and try something else. Of course coming back from Jefferson, I got off at the wrong exit and wound up on the West Bank and had to pay a toll to get back over the bridge into New Orleans. I can't count the times this has happened to me, looks like I would learn, but the old are so forgetful :-)

For an afternoon snack we stopped by Cafe du Monde for two cafe au laits and one order of beignets. We found the cafe au lait to be weak and Peggy never really likes the beignets. I sort of wished they were hot Krispy Kremes. Our afternoon snack cost $8.00.

Light dinner tonight was at Remoulade (Arnaud's casual side). We split a piece of boudin (got too excited about eating it and forgot to take a photo) and an order of Natchitoches Meat Pies. The boudin was excellent, the meat pies were very good, and the fries as usual were terrible. With a couple of soda's our bill was $18.00.
