Last Sunday my "Tea Sisters" and I visited two area Plantations.
The first one (Oak Alley) was also having a "Fall Arts and Crafts Show" on the grounds that day.
It's one of those events where they happen to serve great local food as well.
and Fried Shrimp and Onion on a "Stick"
All of the above are awesome!
Not counting all the other Louisiana foods....BBQ "pulled pork," Ettoufee, and tons of other delightful entrees.
Then there were the PRALINES...which Marsha and I both bought and ate.
I also bought a big, huge bag of "Kettle Corn" for Don Mahan.
Always a good ideal to "include" the husband...even if he didn't go with us. Keeps us all happy that way. HA!

Booths with craft vendors selling just about anything you can imagine.
We were hot and weren't really in the mood to shop much.
Because of the extreme heat, (yes it is mid October here) we decided to walk up to the Plantation House after a bit of
walking around in the hot sun looking at the goods for sale.
"Oak Alley" is what every person "envisions" a Plantation to look like. And it doesn't disappoint one at all.
I have more photos of Oak Alley and it's wonderful row of
300 year old Oaks,
but BLOGGER is and has been giving me fits when it comes to "uploading" photos.
Is it just me or are ya'll having problems too?
This has been for weeks for me dealing with this issue.

I've been meaning to invite you all to my good friend "Marsha's Blog that she has started......
Marsha owned a wonderful little
Tea Room here in Baton Rouge
for many years.
That is how we four ladies met.
Because of Marsha and her fabulous Tea Room.
Thus starting our "Tea Journey"
together as great friends that love
and our love of "Tea," in and amongst many lots of things in
between and after "Tea."
And sometimes during Tea.
If you know what I mean.
The journey as friends......well it's been "grand."
I'm very thankful for these ladies.
