Thanks for coming along on my tour of – My Little Town . Hopefully you enjoyed the tour . Today I leave you with the some pictures to enjoy Lisa
There’s good reason that the town of Melville celebrates the catfish festival every October. Much of the town’s history and commerce are tied to the Atchafalaya River. Historically, the town made its fortune in river commerce and then as a crossing point for the railroad.
Documents also indicate that Melville had several fish docks and ice houses. By the turn of the century, 50 barrels of fish were being shipped from Melville each day.
Boudin – what is it ? Have you heard of it? Have you tried it?
I’m lucky to be from southern Louisiana where this item is made. It’s history dates back the the Acadians that settled in Louisiana as a way to use up slaughtered pig parts. These days it can be found all over South Louisiana and each place seems to have there own family recipe . If you are ever in the area and want to explore here a link to the
St Landry Boudin Trail
“Boudin (boo-dahn) is a wonderfully scrumptious Cajun dish made with meat, rice, and seasonings. Boudin sausage is normally stuffed with pork and rice, but you can add shrimp, crawfish, or alligator meat.”
A great article about boudin and its History– Check it out for more information.
Cannatella Grocery was kind enough to show us how it’s made
Our You Tube Video Showing the process.
Basic recipe is you want to try it.
Put your meat mix into a large bowl and add the cooked rice, parsley and green onions. Mix well, and add up to 4 cups of the reserved cooking liquid. Mix this for 3 to 5 minutes so you make a more cohesive mixture to stuff into a casing. You now have boudin.
But if that does’t make you hungry how about this?
Mr. Grant’s Seasoning –

Spring in My Yard ! And My Knock out roses are in bloom – Easiest roses I have ever grown Lisa
Introduced in 2000, ‘Knockout‘ rose quickly became the best-selling landscape plant in the country. It had everything — showy, continuous blooms; compact growth habit; tough-as-nails constitution; and, best of all, no need to spray for black spot disease.
Some ”Knockout” roses feature blooms that are hot pink (almost red), while others are a true pink. The “Blushing Knockout” rose (Rosa x “Radyod”), which grows in USDA zones 5 through 9, features a teacup-shaped bloom that is bright pink set against dark green leaves.
Feeding. Knock Out roses are heavy feeders, just like other roses. Apply a balanced fertilizer at a rate of 2 to 3 pounds per 100 square feet between two feedings in early spring. Apply an additional 1 to 2 pounds of balanced fertilizer per 100 square feet once buds form and continue every four weeks until mid-August.
