      I am much obliged to you, Hazel. Give us a honk on the
      Florida board if you ever head over this way. But first, stop by Abe's in Lake Charles and load us up a
      coolerful. We'll make it worth your while!

        Will do...lemme know how you like the stuff--I have several other sources (varying amounts of liver flavor in them, less rice/more rice etc.) but TBS is always excellent.

          I like it any way I can get it, Hoss. The only kind I
          ever had is made by Mme. Fruge (my friend's mother) of
          Lake Charles. Every time her daughter would have a baby
          Madame would load the car with Acadian delicacies and
          head for Okeechobee. After five kids, Marquetha is out
          of the baby business. boudin for quite a while.
          Not having been to Louisiana myself, (except on I-10) I
          never knew you could buy it in the store until I read
          that article by Calvin Trillin. Now THAT guy knows what's good.

            My wife is from Lake Charles. I've bought lots of boudin (boo-dan) from Abe's. It's good. He has boudin made with crawfish tail meat now. good-good.
            Just east of Lake Charles at the Iowa exit there is a little store on the so. side of I-10 that sells boudin balls. They have some kind of light cheese (just guessing) coating to keep the rice from separating.
            Can't remember the name. They are great though.2 or 3 makes a great driving snack. Eat it like an apple

              Try their andouille--it is THE best. If you are on I-10, the place is about 45 seconds off the road.
