New Orleans Jazz Fest 2012

There was Jazz and there was Heritage and then:

The menus included quite the assortment.  Being from Central Pennsylvania one would expect the usual fair food of hoagies, burgers, hotdogs, french fries, onion rings,  roast beef,  bean soup, perigees,  pulled pork,  ice cream,  apple or peach deserts, and of course the all time favorite funnel cake.  In the deep South at the New Orleans Jazz Fest none of these foods were to be found.  Like any foodie we went with the flow and found some local grub.  It was all interesting and well ...  very good once we got past the thought of 'they really eat that'!  

 Monica:  My personal favorite because it contained noodles!   Another new favorite included in Monica was crawfish and just that right taste of cajun flavoring!
