How can anyone resist the food in New Orleans? For some inexplicable reason, I imagined that I was going to lose weight during my three month hiatus from Honduras. Instead, I have enjoyed being home, where I have indulged in New Orleans cuisine as well as, surprisingly, good Central American food. It's too bad I can't send you any actual fragments of our delicious food.
Here's a sample of what I have been enjoying. I only had a cell phone camera with me on my dining forays so the quality is not so great. Most of these have been published on Facebook, too.
