Exploring From Home: New Orleans is a fun way to learn about New Orleans and Louisiana Culture as well as its history. It’s a great theme week or even a fun party for them. It can give you ideas for a Mardi Gras Party too.
Our pup was a rescue who came from Louisiana. We chose to do this theme week to celebrate her 5th birthday. It was a lot of fun for all.
Whether you want to have a New Orleans Buffet or spread the meals out for a week these options are great by themselves or together. Crawfish Etouffee is one of my favorites. Our soup-loving son loves Gumbo and my husband’s favorite meal is Jambalaya. If you are looking for some simple options Po Boys are the easiest and Muffaletta isn’t too difficult to put together. If you can’t find fresh crawfish you may be able to find it frozen.
