The Good With The MehMonday, August 08, 2016
When we're in town just to work, to 100% work-work, we stay at the Holiday Inn in Metairie. That's just the place. It's easy to get in and out of, parking's no big deal, it's a Holiday Inn so it's...well, it's a Holiday Inn. No surprises. We've stayed here 25 times: I promise, no surprises. But it's also boring that way and here's the view. Oh, I can see a La Quinta and some on-ramps from here!
haha! It doesn't have to be glamorous always. Obviously.
But the best part of staying here is what's in that little building in the bottom-left of that first pic. It's a little shopping center, and that's where Chef Ron's Gumbo Stop is. Ohmygosh. Chef Ron. Chef Roooonnnnnnn.
When it's worky-work time and there's some furious typing and emailing and researching and calling and texting and blowing up the interwebs and what-not going on, we do take-out and Chef Ron takes care of us. Because this.
Chicken and sausage gumbo
chicken Jefferson, which is chicken breast topped with shrimp and crawfish cream sauce
And we're like, know what? Holiday Inn. Yeah. And it's all high-fives. Because Chef Ron.
