It’s Junior League of Lafayette’s cookbook originally published in the 70s or 80s. It’s basically everybody’s grandma’s best recipes
EDIT: first printed in 1967 now in it’s 30th printing
Also, if you live Louisiana there's Rendez-Vous des Cajuns, it isn't a podcast it is a radio show in French where they talk and play Cajun music between 6 and 7:30pm on Saturdays, on KRVS 88.7FM.

> Fondée par des Espagnols sur les rives du bayou Teche, la ville a ensuite été colonisée par des Acadiens déportés de la Nouvelle-Écosse. La Nouvelle-Ibérie est aujourd’hui renommée pour sa culture et sa cuisine uniques, qui amalgament des éléments de ses héritages espagnol, acadien, français, africain, amérindien et créole.
I don't disagree that oil & gas canals have exacerbated the problem, but to say it is the main mechanism is really absurd.
The main causes are a combination of natural subsidenece and the construction of man-made levees that dammed up the Mississippi and prevented the silt that travels in it from being distributed into the marshes.
The proof of this is 100 miles West in the Atchafalaya Basin where land is actually being added to the marshes and there are plenty of oil & gas canals there as well. This is because the entire basin was dammed instead of the river itself. You can even see in this picture that this area will the the only part of the state projected to gain land in the next 50 years.
Apparently the exits arn't blocked off from the interstate. I might have to make a WTF trip to check it out.
The documentary, in case anyone is intersested
Also, THIS is the most in depth article I've read about the killings and the people involved.
This actually started in the 1800's, when Henry Shreve cleared the Atchafalaya River logjam and dredged a new Mississippi River channel. Here is a very interesting, in-depth article about it. Truth is, the Old River Control Structure isn't going anywhere... the Mississippi will not be changing course anytime soon lol.
Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, here are some Trailers
If you haven't read the book Beyond Control i highly recommend it. It talks about all the factors needed for the river to change course bc the Morganza/ Old river control structure failed and the potential fall out. He pretty much says its not a matter of if it happens, but when
>Dulac Dat Cajun Cat
Confederacy of Dunces is a great ride set in new orleans that doesnt lean on tropes
for non fiction The Cajuns: Americanization of a people is pretty great. Honestly I would suggest anything by Shane K Bernard. Teche talks specifially about the long history of people that lived along the Teche.
Back when I worked at a restaurant called "Randolph's" located uptown, we had been tasked with doing a private luncheon for a number of LA chefs and seafood suppliers that's main purpose was to highlight a booth we set up that served Chopique caviar along with salmon and sturgeon roe for comparison. It was a smashing success, but that was the last I heard about it. Since my OP I've done a bit of searching and came across this:
I remember the caviar as being quite good but I might have to order this to try it once more. I was hoping that someone in the industry might see my OP and be able to say whether this is a popular item now. It's definitely cheaper than other caviars.
I wonder if one of those books was gender queer that has an age rating of 18+? You know the one they banned from schools a while back. 🤔

I've heard before it's (one of, if not the) the oldest built structure in North America. There's a few interesting books out there. One specifically a guy left at the shop I used to work at once, was all about how the ancient cities of Indigenous peoples were actually so much more advanced than history gives credit for. Our history tends to 'white-wash' their achievements and portray them as simple, 'savage' etc. In fact they were very well integrated with the landscape, had advanced tools and yes were sort of nomadic, but iirc they had sort of 'bases' that they would return to at different times of the year. Understood crops, farming, fisheries, etc.... Poverty point is just one example.
1492 is one GREAT example of a this type of book, but I can't recall the one specific to poverty point. There are several.... It may have been this one. Super interesting place!
I think the river could still change course. It was a concern last year of I'm remembering correctly. The issue is, if that happens, all of the infrastructure for the port & oil& has industry would be useless where it is & it would all need to be rebuilt.
I'm from Lafayette, most of what I've found is from around here, and they have them everywhere.
Geocaching.com seems to be the biggest and most legit website for Geocaching, I have an account on there. (They're free.)
This is just the ones around Lafayette. (You can go and search by address, ZIP code, etc.)
It's pretty fun. I know they make an iPhone and Android app, (kinda pricey, I know the Android one is $9.99) and they work great, but I'd get an actual GPS unit that you can put lat and long coords in. You can find cheap ones for about $100 from Academy.
The Louisiana Office of State Parks also has a series of 43 geocaches hidden throughout all the state parks in Louisiana. There was a prize if you found and logged all 43 caches, but I think it's probably over, however the caches should all still be there. Louisiana actually doing something right for a change!
There's also a geocaching subbreddit, /r/geocaching.
One day in the US Senate Huey Long was giving a long speech. Every member of the Senate left the chambers save the acting President of the Senate. Huey thanked him for staying. To wit he replied, ~"I only stayed because its my job" or something to that effect. That man was Harry S. Truman.
Point being Huey was always ostracized. He had the balls of trump and the mind of a lawyer.
As a person of Irish descent, yes I would think you know about sunscreen, lol. Yeah, they do have DIY tinting kits, but YYMV so beware. You could try something like this or this.
This is the model I have which was recommended to me in r/coffee. I like it. It seems to produce a lot of fines, but they mostly stick to the sides of the canister so they're easy to scoop out. But I can't tell the difference with them included, anyway.
take 2 heaping spoonfuls of this and about idk a quart and a half of water in a pot.
Let it get to mixing and heating up and add the trinity (onions, Bell Peppers, celery)
at this point, you should add any more roux you'd like to make it darker, you won't really know what you like till you do it a few times. I'm usually around 2-2.5 heaping spoons of it.
Once your boiling add your chicken (BONE IN FOR BETTER FLAVOR)
you sausage (andouille is my preference)
if you're doing seafood you can add that in now too.
At this point its just waiting for it to cook the meat and boil off some water, I tend to add several shakes of tonys
once the chicken cooks, you're ready to go.
Steam some white rice, make some potato salad and enjoy.
Save the leftovers gumbo for reheating, its better the next day.
I crack an egg in it when it starts boiling again.
A portable battery pack will recharge your phone 3-4x times before it's exhausted.
Anker 20,000mAh is around ~$35 and only weighs 0.78lbs. Easily can be thrown into your backpack or bag and takes up little space. It's almost 2018, you need to step your tech game up.
>charges the iPhone 7 almost seven times, the Galaxy S6 five times or the iPad mini 4 twice.
