The Flavor Table

The Eagle and I came across this (BO) business by accident called The Flavor Table. They’re located on Florence.  So we went in and tried their breakfast.  It was cool.  The price didn’t bother me and the decor fit their theme, a Louisiana feel.  They have the typical photos on the wall, beads in the corner, flowers on the table, everything is red and purple and the waiters are pleasant offering great customer service.  They offer catering, take out, no reservations, there’s street parking and you’ll pay a typical $12 for your meal.  Oh and I’ve only been there twice and I just learned they have a little patio eating area in the back.  I’ll try it out next time whenever I’m around.  I think I saw about three tables back there surround by umbrellas and additional covering for added privacy.  Simple area for a small group of maybe 10 who want some fresh air and privacy.  Keep in mind it’s in a residential area.

So the first time I went there I ordered the Peach Cobbler French Toast.  I thought it was going to be smothered in yummy sauce with juicy peaches, but instead they offered the cobbler in a side dish and the french toast on its own plate.  I was a little disappointed.

Pictured above is what I ordered the second time we visited.  It’s their Caramel French Toast.  Maybe I’m asking for too much but I could have used a tad more of a thicker sauce or syrup.  It was simply caramel poured on top.  So they lack creativity, but the food was still good enough for myself to return in time.

The Eagle usually gets items such as rice, eggs and salmon croquettes of which I guess I need to learn how to make.  This is his plate pictured to the left.  He said he really enjoyed his Shrimp and Crab Omelet.  I was pleased for I hate to have him upset with his meal.  It cost about $17.

 

 

All and all the place is fine.  If you’re in the area, try them out for yourself.  I may not drive across town just to eat here, but if in the area I would definitely continue to support.

What I love about Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Don’t you just love the holidays?  Well I do!  I love the build up and planning.  I love early and last minuet shopping, themed decorating, family time, personalized cards, home videos, church service, holiday playlist and most of all – MENU MAKING lol

I mean, Christmas to me is all about…

Jesus

Celebrating Family

Peppermint Bark

(drum roll) …and Bread pudding

Yup, that’s right people I said it, bread pudding and I don’t feel bad about it at all.  You see, Jesus came into the world to offer happiness for being in a world of such madness.  In the bible, for those who read it, you will come across a scripture that talks about Jesus breaking bread and it went into all kinds of breads and foods he would prepare to eat along his journey and one was bread pudding.  Look into Matthew 26:26 which goes into how they broke bread pudding in half with great joy and shared it amongst the people.  It’s a great verse, go check it out.

NOW, usually I’m known for making my own, but this year due to personal circumstances I couldn’t get it done.  However, I did find a place The Eagle and I went to called Lola’s – A Lousiana Kitchen.  I tried their Lola’s Famous Bread Pudding which was topped with a Jim Beam praline sauce.  All for the cost of 6 bucks and it was YUMMY!  Would I go back?  Yes.  The consistency was just right, not too mushy or too dry.  The sauce was mixed with raisins and nuts and I licked every drizzle of it from the plate.  It was a good balance or ratio of fat to bread offering a beautiful texture to enjoy.
