Who would have known that the biggest partier in the New Orleans Area lives in Kenner, LA!!!!
Bob asked me to put together a Cajun themed football menu so, or course, I started with a Cochon de Lait. Since Bob was planning on having 100 people, I also proposed to smoke/roast a couple of boneless hind quarters. While I was planning on heatin' up my pit, I suggested that we roast up smoked boudin, chaurice sausage and chaudins (stuffed pork stomachs). Then to round our the menu I thought I would cook up a pot of Throwdown Jambalaya and our Shrimp Breaux Bridge. NOW, that is a TRUE Cajun menu!!!!
Bob asked me to check out his house and back yard to make sure that what we were planning would work out. WELL, Bob's back yard is designed with a Moroccan theme complete with a 40 foot multi- level garden pond and pergola. I told him there was NO WAY that he could throw a 100 person party, but he persisted and it was ON!!
Bob, then sends out this invitation and has to bump up the food order because an additional 20 people are coming!
I was thinking, "This is NOT going to be good!"
GAME DAY! ...... I bring over a truck load of food.... 4 chaffers of Cajun cooking, a twelve gallon pot of Jambalaya, and the pig!
People are arriving 2 hours before kick-off!!! He has hired a bartender (Lorrie) and Waiter (Clifton James). Bob has also installed 4 - 42 inch plasma TVs, and 2 or 3 smaller ones!!! Everywhere you look you can view the game!!! WAY COOOOOOL!!! He has set up dozens of folding chairs, in every nick and cranny of the garden. In the house he has his 60 something inch TV in the den. NOW that is party planning!!
Check out these wide screen plasma TVs OVER the pond!
LET the eating begin!!!
After the party Bob sent out this email and graciously allowed me to post it to my webpage. Check this out!!!
