Windsor Court Hotel for drinks and then to dinner at August afterward. Dave's childhood friend is a chef at Windsor and put together a wonderful spread of appetizers on a beautiful chalkboard slab that had the description of each item on it. August is one of John Besh's restaurants. He is a really well known chef in NOLA and has been on the food network several times. the dinner was wonderful at August and needless to say, we were the loudest group there! It was a great night and we got this fun family photo out of it! (Mueller Family Photo run down - FRONT: Me, Mother-in-Law Beth, Cousin-in-law Ethan, Father-in-law Nick - BACK: Hubby Dave, Uncle Jack, Cousin Cristina, Brother-in-law John)
The Mueller Christmas tradition is Shrimp Creole for dinner on Christmas Eve. Beth used an Emeril recipe that called for way too much spice so we cut a lot of the cayenne pepper out but here is the recipe if you're interested... it was delish!Snog and is suuuuper cute! It's full of puppies and love quotes - my favorite! The two pups on the front are chocolate labs - just like our girl Brees!
I always like to incorporate my family Christmas tradition which is POPPERS! You can get some fun ones at Williams-Sonoma and they run about $40 for a pack of 12. You pop them after dinner and everyone gets a paper crown, a game, and a joke! It makes for a fun time :)
And this is a wonderful moment that I had to capture on camera. I have such a great husband! Haha.
More of the Christmas recap to come.... I have more photos on my cellphone to share! ;)
