Last night our niece Tammy made homemade pizza. She had originally planned on making chicken, but when she saw the block of provel cheese we brought her she immediately went into pizza mode. Provel is the cheese preferred on pizzas in St Louis and since moving to the south she hasn’t been able to get this type. Who knew a block of cheese could have a gal jumping and squealing.

Finally got a good picture of her new pup Eliza. She is blind and was abandoned. How cruel can someone be. Tammy is treating her for infections, but the pup is coming around slowly to her new forever home.
Today Donna and Tammy went for a girls day out to New Orleans. This is a muffaletta that Donna got. Ham, capicola, salami, mortadella, swiss and an olive salad on a toasted bun. Supposedly a New Orleans favorite. It was good but had to take off most of olives as very salty. Later in day we stopped for beignets and coffee, of course you have to when you are in N.O. We went to the Cafe du Monde, supposedly a very famous beignet place as that is all they serve. What a disappointment. Server was very rude, very impatient. Before we were a foot from table she demanded ‘What you want” when we told her we didn’t know since we had never been there before, she stood right next to us arms folded across her chest. After bringing our coffee and beignets , she said it would be $13.82, would have been nice if we could have had at least one bite first, anyway I handed her my card and she very abruptly said cash only. Started to put card back and get cash and she very loudly told me ATM across street, Told her twice I had cash…all in all a terrible experience. Beignets remind of the homemade donuts we had when I was a kid, fried biscuit dough drenched in powdered sugar.
All in all an interesting place. You can still see where sections are in disrepair. sign look liked it was a piece of a car bumper. and then a block away new signs The catholic church Cathedral of St Louis. Absolutely beautiful and the plaza around it was gorgeous. River boat Natchez ready for a river cruise.
Market place, several blocks long
All in all we had a good time. We laughed and explored. We were together.
Good night. As Sam would say be careful out there, be safe
