Friday morning, we were up early and ready for our test. I felt pretty confident I passed, and was pleased to find out Huck and I both passed the certification. Wow! Actually, Huck only scored a few points higher than I did. Considering I haven’t used the program in months, I figured that means I’m smarter!
We each had a Po’boys, Shrimp and Alligator Sausage. The Alligator tasted like regular sausage but really tasty.
We also went to Harrah’s Casino and wasted $10 in less than 10 seconds. We literally walked in the back down, put $10 in a machine, and walked out the front.
We finished up our class around 4pm, packed up, and headed to my grandparents.
Huck pulled over and made us take a picture in front of the Mississippi state line sign. Our plan was to take a picture with each sign. That was a complete fail!
We arrived around 10pm and sat up talking with my Grandparents for a while before calling it a night.
We were up bright and early Saturday morning. We all sat around their table drinking coffee and talking.
My Nanny let me make homemade biscuits with her. She actually let me make them, and instructed me on what to do. Like every good grandparent recipe, there was no measurements. Just a bunch of “add some of this, little of that, little more, now wait for it to form a ball”. Unless I’m making something for the blog, I do not measure anything either, so I get it. It just makes recreating the food you love harder!
We served the biscuits with Tomato Gravy. It sounds weird, but I LOVE Nanny’s tomato gravy. When I called and told her we were coming, I requested Tomato Gravy and homemade biscuits!
We spent time with them before heading to Huck’s Uncle and then his Aunt’s house for dinner. Aunt Ruthie and her husband made us a huge Fried Shrimp and Fish Fest! I overindulged in fresh shrimp and fish, and listened to stories about Huck’s childhood.
I was up early again Sunday to spend a much time with Nanny before we had to leave. We had BLTs for breakfast and left around noon. Have I told you guys how much I hate goodbyes?? Goodbyes and see you later, are the same thing. They both mean I’m not seeing you tomorrow! :(
Huck had a claim to look at in Jacksonville on our way back. We arrived home around 9pm, and our vacation/work trip was over. The last two week went by in a flash. I honestly can’t believe they’re already over.
We had a great time on our mini-vacation/work events. If only we could do it more often.
Stay tuned for a New Orleans themed dish. Actually, I have 4 New Orleans themed meals to share. Cajun Gravy, Red Beans and Rice, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and Chicken and Waffles.
