I’m practically vegetarian. I also hate pies (all kinds). Yet, somehow the combination of the two is fabulous, and I had the pleasure of trying it this weekend.
We took a day trip to Natchitoches this weekend for lunch and some shopping.
We ate lunch at The Landing, a quaint restaurant along Front Street with eclectic menu offerings such as alligator, catfish, rabbit hushpuppies, and a local favorite, meat pies.
Since Natchitoches is known for its meat pies, I silenced all of my internal protests against such a creation and resolved to try them.
I cannot believe I let two years pass without trying this Louisiana staple.
This is probably the one time you’ll ever hear me say I’ve been missing out when speaking about a deep-fried meat dish, and I’m okay with that.
