    In perusing my Louisiana cookbooks, I've run into a couple iterations of a cheese-y crawfish bread that is popular at music festivals.

    Or, I could take another run at the muffaletta (honoring my Sicilian forebears and all).

    I'm willing to let all y'all pick....

    Giovanna, both sound great,
    but we have nothing like Muffaletta on the menu yet...
    and it's great for feeding the crowd,
    so I'd lean that way personally

    We're still trying to think of a second thing to bring, but right now I'm thinking at least pecan pralines.

    I think I'm also planning to bring dirty rice.

    Anyone who hasn't decided what to make yet-
    we are noticeably GUMBO-LESS ....
    just a thought

    We can do a chicken and andouille gumbo instead of dirty rice.

    LauraS- whatever floats your boat (or should I say pirogue)
    - either Gumbo or dirty rice sounds great

    I'm being sent out of town on Saturday, won't be back until Thursday.
    I may be able to still prep something for Sue to bring, and Sue should still be there.

    My husband had a death in the family yesterday, so he will be out of town this weekend :( He's sad to miss the extravaganza. I'll still be bringing our son and pralines though.

    What a nice party! It was fun catching up with several friends and, of course, the food was terrific. But more than anything else, the music was excellent. It was really special to hear such fine musicians in such an intimate setting. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed more of it. Thank you, Elaine and Frank, for the fine hospitality! :)

    i had a wonderful time catching up with friends and acquaintances, though i'm afraid i didnt give the music as much of my attention as i usually do. thanks to elaine and frank for this yearly treat- it does give us something to look forward to in the depths of winter.

    No apologies for living life to the fullest!

    Thanks to you and your family for a fine setting for sharing music, food and friendship.

    If I ever have the opportunity to provide pimento sandwiches, I will bring double the quantity. My sister brought the pepper jelly in case anyone wanted it on their sandwich.

    Again, thanks!
