Some of you may know that I used to be really good about blogging. Lately, busy with two kids, work, and a job search, I’ve been slacking. Back when I was blogging a lot, I had a food blog called Syrup and Cornbread (you can still access it in the link on the sidebar) and I posted MaMa Nola’s brownie recipe. One day I got a call from a very nice lady who asked to use this recipe in a cookbook which would feature recipes from home cooks across the country. I gave her the recipe and never heard anything. Well, the other day at church, a friend stopped me and said that she thought she saw my name in a new cookbook she’d just bought. Sure enough, MaMa Nola’s brownie recipe has now been published! It’s in One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking compiled by Molly O’Neill. I’ve scanned the page for you:

I sent most of you an e-mail, but thought I’d post it here too (I don’t have the energy to call everyone, but do feel free to call if you want to chat). I’ve accepted a position at the National Archives in College Park, MD, and I start on Jan. 18th. We’ll be moving around the first of Feb., and I’ll be in touch with my new address, etc.
Hope all is well with you and you had a Merry Christmas!

I just thought I would share this book with everyone. It’s all about the festivals held in South Louisiana, and even features the Cattle Festival in Abbeville! The man who wrote it lives here in Arlington, MA, and our daughters went to school together. It was pretty funny when we were talking on the playground and he told me that he’d spent some time in Abbeville. That was certainly a first.

Anyway, here’s the link to a description on LibraryThing  (a fun, if nerdy way to pass the time and learn about new books), if any of you are interested:  Rhinestone Sisterhood: A Journey Through Small Town American, One Tiara At a Time.


Michael Hebert is a full professor at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, effective July 1, 2010.

Congrats, Michael … and Hotty Toddy!

This pet pig was left out in the sun too long …

Just kidding. That’s the cochon de lait we had at restaurant COCHON Friday.

Next time you’re in Nevada, be sure to pop into the town (village? or hamlet?) of Primeaux.  It’s several miles west of Elko, which is suspended in the desert wasteland between Reno and Salt Lake City.

And if you are in the Pyrenees in the south of France and run out of things to do, just rendezvous in Mouledous.

You can find them both via Google Earth.

How did that happen?

I hope it goes away when I wake up.

The family gathered in Metairie for the big event on July 31, 2010.

It was a beautiful wedding, followed by a superb reception at the Chateau Country Club in Kenner.

Those of us who stayed at the Courtyard Marriott shared the premises with the Flaming Knights Motorcycle Club whose members biked in from all over the country.  We saw and talked with bikers from San Diego, Connecticut, Maryland, Jacksonville, FL., Atlanta, Wisconsin, Los Angeles, and more.

Here is our only pic from the wedding …

Lisa took some pics at the reception.  The quality is not so hot due to the dim light, but the party was jumping!  Here they are …

From Phil Mouledous …

Leah had to reschedule her wedding due to some curriculum changes that her school made for next May. (Who wants to get married on the day of a final in grad school?) –  The new date will be August 5th- 2011, a Friday night.  Wanted everyone to know so that you can reserve that date to come celebrate with us in good ole Abbeville! No need to rush home on Saturday morning, either – we’ll cook something up that day too.
 
Matt and Meredith are excited about their big weekend coming up in two weeks! – We’re looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it.
 
Love ya!
Phil
