It may have been, ChefJune - but my visits to the USA have, in the main, been business-linked and to the East and West coasts... I think I have only visited NO once or maybe twice - many, many years ago.

Edited to remove a joke, in case it was misconstrued.

Oh well, Ray made them as little triangles. And I've never been to Louisiana. He wasn't from New Orleans, he was born and raised on a bayou island

My beignets are neither squares not triangles! They're more like little blobs. No one complains!

Ish, New Orleans is such a wonderful place. I hope you'll get the chance to visit it again.

I've been putting off US trips for the past few years... the horror stories that some of my friends/colleagues tell about Homeland Security officiousness has kind of put me off!
