What do you get when said friend realizes it takes all day to reupholster 8 seat covers and sew two window valances…? She takes you to dinner at The Royal House in the French Quarters of New Orleans! Oh yeah! We enjoyed Charbroiled Oysters and Eggplant Straws, Baked Seafood Tortellini, Salmon & Crab Bercy *crab sauce with whipping cream & white wine*, Salads and French Onion Soup. Then we actually went for the desserts like wild people...thank goodness for to-go-boxes!

|The homemade Bread Pudding was to die for with Chicory coffee!!|
|Key Lime Pie|
|Mississippi Mud Cheesecake~ Oh yeah yum!|
What do you get after you have stuffed yourself silly with dinner and dessert?
A walk to Café Du Monde for coffee and beignets!!
So the sore fingers from pulling upholstery fabric, using a big
staple gun and sewing were paid off with good fun and food!!
E & A are Holly and Richard’s friends from New York, who are stationed on the same base in New Orleans. Aaron is in the USCG too. Unfortunately Richard was unable to join us for dinner because he was working in Venice.
