A NOLA Meal You Can't Resist – Maddie Foret
a bowl of red beans and rice with a crunchy Andouille sausage—more gravy than rice
so it floods the bowl,
and I am
the fried chicken covered in layers of Tony’s, in front of the glass of Merlot, almost black from a
or a Cabaranet Sauvignon, or whatever was cheapest.
Then I am
a classic syrupy snoball with the spoon protruding from one side of the cup and the bendy straw
on the other.
It’s Strawberry Daiquiri- flavored— but there’s no daiquiri.
We get that at the drive thru.
