Gumbo, Grouper, and Fried Green Tomatoes - A Test for The Girlfriend Guilt Diet
Posted May 14 2009 4:35pm
I will play for gumbo, sings Jimmy Buffet. Theresa-Venus and I can relate to this sentiment. We will beg, plead, and just generally make fools of ourselves over gumbo. And grits, fried green tomatoes, fresh grouper, etouffee, jambalaya, biscuits with red-eye gravy........I could go on and on.
Which is why it was a unique challenge to the Girlfriend Guilt diet and exercise program when we went to visit the Gulf Coast and New Orleans last week. I m happy to say we did extremely well.
We ate EVERYTHING Southern, Creole, and Cajun that our little hearts desired. And we only ate - say it with me - HALF! Yep, heavenly fried green tomatoes and blackened fresh grouper at Tug s Wharf in Gulfport, Mississippi. (Thank you to the owner and staff, and thank you iPhone for finding us this great place so we didn t have to eat freeway fast food!)
