The Praline Connection Menu
Having bought tickets to the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery through Living Social, we decided that a mid-October Saturday was the perfect time to go. But first, we had to eat. The Distillery is on Frenchman but in between the interstate split. We decided to try a Marigny restaurant. Cristina left it up to me decided.

I started off with some hog’s head cheese served with garlic toast. The cheese was very good with a bit of a kick at the end.

Saturday morning, I headed to the German Coast Farmer’s Market at the Ormond Plantation to get my vegetables for the week. I came home with some fresh green beans, sweet potatoes, broccoli, carrots and some spicy hog’s head cheese. All for better prices than I would have paid at Winn Dixie. I also came home with a new obsession: Mama Mary’s Apple Cinnamon Pepper Jelly.
The jelly is the perfect amount of sweet and heat. I made sure we have had something to spread it on at every meal since. Biscuits for supper and dinner, just on plain bread for a snack, or with some fresh ground peanut butter from Whole Foods for lunch. My only problem with is that I bought a small jar, and I will be out-of-town this Saturday.
