    lived in lafayette for 7 years, great place, beautiful brunette women, friendly people, good food, festivals, decent oil and gas and medical field opportunities.

    I love new orleans but can't afford it since i like good seafood/steaks, bourbon st, and harrahs on canal. I do like that everything seems semi-legal/acceptable there. Great food too! I had an apartment w/2nd floor balcony in the quarter. Had enough of that now I'm up in the woods.

    couldn't pay me to move back to houston.

    How old are you? In Louisiana your first cardiac stent is a right of passage around age 50.

    Oh, I thought maybe you meant put them half-shelled on the grill with some garlic butter and parmesan cheese.

    FWIW, I was in Houston last week eating Louisiana oysters.

    Often times, our food may not look good, but when you take a bite, you won't care. We've got a friend that moved from Texas. We got her to try (reluctantly) some boudin and she loved it. She posted a picture on Facebook and the first comment was from her friend in Texas "That legit looks like poo". No one argued with him, but damn is it good

    My problem is I need to stop eating the damn things before they get to where they're supposed to be going. I managed to fry maybe 2 dozen last night, the rest...slid down my throat with hot sauce. I still have a gumbo I need to drop some in, looks like it's time for another oyster run. :shocked:

    In the general lafayette area, you can buy these things FRESH at most gas stations.

    If you're on facebook, look up "boudin Link" where they rate all of the boudin around.

    Friends of ours own a big oyster distributor. They make this concotion every Christmas called marinated oysters.

    Essentially it is a gallon of oysters dumped into a bloody mary.

    You eat them till you can't move. They'll give us a gallon for the asking but will not share the recipe.

    What is left over, we fry. You can't imagine how good they are.

    And I'm not sure if it's a LA thing, but it's hard to beat a basket of hot, fried gizzards.

    My favorite used to be T-Jim's up in Cottonport but last time I had it it was kinda loose.

    Okay, I just looked this up. I got 1 result with a man in a speedo posing on a bed surrounded by guns. I didn't open it, but I somehow doubt that's the page you were talking about.

    Some hole in the wall I found in Crowley. I usually get it from Best Stop in Scott, but tried this and it's pretty damn good. Not too loose, not hard as a brick either. Some good green onion flavor in it too.

    That's it! I told them they could use my pic for advertising in exchange for 2 free pounds a week.

    Their's (Best Stop) is a little more firm, no doubt. It holds up a little better when it gets room temp, whereas the looser ones start wanting to fall apart.
