Being in a French speaking area like Louisiana, it is a challenge for me to correctly pronounce words either from a menu or even business names.
Case in point is Robie’s, which we would normally pronounce like a boy’s name (Robbie’s) with the accent on the first syllable, but here it is pronounced Ra-bees with the accent on the last syllable.
Robie’s is a mile from Betty’s RV Park and is very convenient for us to use. Here are photos from our first visit this trip.
We found potatoes from our home area in Colorado…Mountain King brand grown in the San Luis Valley and packaged in Monte Vista, CO. Jim was a little reluctant to participate….but he did…bless his heart.
Many of the meats are sold seasoned. No, that’s not paprika you see on these meats, it’s Cajun seasoning.
and here their packaged, prepared foods consist of gumbo, etouffee and jambalaya.
Rice is a used in a lot of local dishes with Mahatma and Water Maid being the most popular. It’s not unusual to see someone with a 25 pound sack of rice in their shopping cart at the check-out line.
Well, that’s my little tour for you of the local grocery store. Hope you enjoyed it.
Remember, you are loved.
