Get Your Cajun On!!!

Respectfully borrowed from Cajun Kathy’s Collection www.cajunkathyscollection.wordpress.com.  Check out her website for cute, sassy, and delicious Cajun merchandise!!  I hear she sells signed books written by a really talented author, too. 😉  www.cajunkathyscollection.com

YOU MIGHT BE A CAJUN IF:…..

  • ·         Watching “Wild Kingdom” inspires you to write a cookbook.
  • ·         You won’t eat a lobster because you think it’s a crawfish on steroids.
  • ·         You take a bite of 5-alarm Texas chili and reach for some Tabasco.
  • ·         You pass up a chance to meet the president to go to the Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge
  • ·         Your children’s favorite bedtime story begins with, “First you make a roux…”
  • ·         You’re asked in school to name the four seasons and you reply, “Onyons, celery, bell peppers, and garlic.”
  • ·         You think the “Fab Four” are ”Paul Prudhomme, John Folse, Justin Wilson, and A.J. Smith”.
  • ·         You let your black coffee cool and find it has gelled.
  • ·         You describe a complete breakfast as some deer sausage, grits and a yard of boudin.
  • ·         None of your favorite vacation spots are north of Abbeville.
  • ·         You sit down to eat boiled crawfish and someone says, “Don’t eat the dead ones” and you know what they mean.
  • ·         You refer to Louisiana winters as “gumbo weather”
  • ·         You gave up Tabasco for Lent.
  • ·         You learned bourre’ the hard way – holding yourself upright in the crib.
  • ·         You don’t know the real names of your close friends – only their nicknames.
  • ·         You can look at a rice field and can tell how much gravy it’ll take for that much rice.
  • ·         Your high school’s rendition of the national anthem begins with, ”Jambalaya, crawfish pie, filet gumbo…”
  • ·         You stand up when they play “Jolie Blon.”
  • ·         You consider Breaux Bridge the state capitol.
  • ·         You think the Mason-Dixon line is at Bunkie
