After having breakfast with my niece and her family at the Waffle House across from our Candlewood Suites hotel room in LA, my dad and I headed out in the direction of Oklahoma. We drove most of the day and decided to get something to eat in Natchitoches. It is the oldest city in Louisiana celebrating its 300 year in 2014. I was determined to eat my first cup of Gumbo and crawfish pie before we left the state of Louisiana. I pulled into a gas station and asked a locale where to eat at and a very nice customer in a natural gas uniform recommend Merci Beaucoup. He was headed there right now if we wanted to follow him so we did. It was one of the best meals that I have ever had and being completely different from anything I had eaten before, it was delicious! Now the agony is that there is not a single place to get these two dishes where I live in Georgia! It was around 2p.m. when we arrived and it was raining out but the atmosphere inside was cozy and warm. We got a table next to the window and sidewalk. People were still out shopping the historic district with their brightly colored umbrellas. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I ordered the Chicken and sausage Gumbo and the mini crawfish pies, and coffee to warm the chill from my bones. It was just what I needed! My dad had already eaten country fried steak & gravy & taters & cornbread back at the gas station so he had coffee and pie while I truly enjoyed my meal as I watched the rain gently come down outside. This meal was great fuel for my body since we drove until we reached Canadian Oklahoma late that night!
