Harlan, Emily, Matt and I accompany Olive to Lagniappe, a Cajun Creole Eatery in Marquette. I don't know why I found that incongruous, perhaps it is the several feet of snow on the ground.
Olive is fascinated by the alligator
We both enjoyed the more edible version - surprisingly succulent and tender
I ordered the Crayfish Ettouffe...
Being this far North of the spice line, I thought it safe to order at a grade 7 level of "hotness" - one step short of the max. This proved to be a mistake. Still edible, and enjoyable for the full-on Louisiana-hot sinus-clearing, forehead-sweat-popping, breath-taking experience, but could taste little else beside the pepper. No one to blame but myself.
An evening of good food, good beer, family fun and Olive cuteness.
