    I’ve never been to New Orleans before, but I would love to go someday soon. Thanks for sharing some pictures.

    I think its funny you say the one hour time change threw off your eating schedule! I’m at Narita airport in Japan (where we’re stationed) and its 2pm on Thursday. Shortly I’ll board the first of 3 flights (stop in NY and ATL), fly for 23 hours, and land in NC on Thursday night. Suffice to say I’ll just eat when I’m hungry!

    Hi Meghann! (I have been reading you for the longest time, but only commented once or twice I think)
    I am really enjoying reading about your trip and the classes you are meeting on the way (sounds like they have amazing teachers!) but I have to say that, as an European, I find the whole ‘adopt a classroom’ concept puzzling. Here, the goverment is supposed to pay for supplies like compasses and backpacks for the public schools- that’s why we pay taxes! I always find amusing how US culture is so similar but oh so different in some things.
    Anyway, enjoy the rest of your trip!

    I’ve loved your blog for ages, but have never commented…until I saw the photo of your salad today and have decided that I’m now going to have to move to America (if only for those salads)! πŸ˜€ I live in New Zealand and we don’t have Chick-Fil-A πŸ™ Move country for dietary reasons? Sounds rationale!

    You got the best of NOLA in a short time – CDM beignets and a muffuletta! Yum.

    Not sure if you saw my previous comment, but I’m at SXSW Sun-Tues – would love to meet for a coffee πŸ™‚

      I’m so sorry Sara! I starred this comment to come back to it (I would have loved to have met for coffee!), but never had the time. The whole trip was kind of crazy and just a whirlwind of a week. I hope you had fun at SXSW! That was my first time attending the conference and it was a bit crazy to take it all in. So insane, but so much fun!

    Ahhh! I used to live in Escambia County (Pensacola is one of the most beautiful parts of Florida–white sand beaches? Heck yes!). My husband is originally from Austin and when we moved me from FL to TX to live together and stop the long-distance thing we took the same New Orleans detour! However, it wasn’t as easy with a U-Haul πŸ™‚

    I have made this same trip before and absolutely loved it! That ChikFilA salad looks delicious and it seems like you’re having a blast. A slight detour to enjoy New Orleans seems more than worth it!! Can’t wait to see the next day of adventures!! Have fun!

    Thanks for posting some pictures of the Mobile Bay!! I moved to DC from mobile and have been feeling a little homesick for Alabama. I have a feeling the Chik-fil-a you stopped at is the one right across the street from my old neighborhood! Enjoy the rest of your trip! πŸ™‚

    1) Twizzlers ARE awesome 2) Um, I never knew Chick-fil-A made food that looked like that 3) I’m very bummed we didn’t choose NOLA for our spring break destination this year. Great post and pics!

    Welcome to Texas! Sorry Houston can’t offer you it’s typical sunny and humid climate…but then again I’m sure you get that enough in Florida! Have fun in ATX!

    I want to go to New Orleans so badly!

    Also, I secretly love Sonic’s drinks and ice cream. For awhile they had a pumpkin pie blizzard type thing that was amazing πŸ˜‰

    I don’t really post often but I’m a regular reader. It looks like you’re having a blast! and aww maaaan, I wish I’dda known you were gonna be in Beaumont! I’m here at Lamar University… maybe y’all could’ve come eat at our dining hall, I dunno lol. :p Sorry if Beaumont smelled like a huge cloud of funk. It’s the chemical plants.

    Mmm, Twizzlers and Kashi–two of my favorite things! Would it be wrong of me if one of the next recipes I created was a merger of the two?

    Fun to see the photos of you trip. The hubs and I will be going some of these places over the next couple of months for some interviews he has!

    My greatest apologies for your having to eat and stay in Beaumont.
    If I never step foot in that town again, it will be too soon.
