I decided my first meal would be "Bojangles's Baked Florentine" I'm a lover of all things spinachy and this was the perfect vegetarian egg casserole to make for a quick lunch. All the ingredients were already in my kitchen, so it didn't even require a trip to the store. The recipe was simple enough for a novice cook to tackle, but delicious enough that a more experienced cook would be proud to serve it.
I served the dish with chorizo, a salad, and of course a cup of hot Cafe du Monde coffee, that I'd been hoarding since my trip. I thought it would be a perfect time to open up one of the treasured cans so I could make "Brew HA HA! Cafe au Lait" Sure I could have used any old coffee, but there is something about the dark roasted-with-chicory Louisiana coffee that really takes you back to the Crescent City.
I'm not sure what I'll make next, but a glance at the table of contents reveals all manner of choices. I'm sure I'll find another winner among the 200+ pages.
