You know you live in New Orleans when...

...you come home from your run carrying all of this:
Reverse carb loading?

The owner of a bar down the street stopped me a few blocks from my house and asked me if I wanted some French bread. "My poboy guy delivered too much," he explained, so I walked the rest of the way home holding two loaves at arm's length to avoid sweat contamination.
You have to love New Orleans sometimes.

  2. How awesome! What a great way to end a run. I'm heading to New Orleans in a couple of weeks for a 2 or 3 days vacation with hubs and a friend. I'm so excited, I've never been before!

  5. I love your city because of stuff just like what you posted. My husband and I found ourselves there on our 5th date (exciting to me because we live in Philly) and it was our last date before we got married.

  6. Rouses (back when it was just in Lafourche and Terrebonne parish) had one of the best tasting french breads (in my opinion.) Now that they have expanded and are in your area, I am not sure how it compares to others. How does it stack up compared to your local french bread? Have you tried theirs?
