'ON SALE' until the end of May........
In my last newsletter, I confirmed the Louisiana Fish Fry Products sale would end at the end of April, but I have decided to continue this sale, throughout the month of May.  Click here to see the list of Louisiana Fish Fry Products, which are on sale. 
Please note a new sale will be announced, at the end of May, for the 'sale products' for the month of June. 
As many of you already know, I have returned from my recent Buying Trip Down South, with some new Goodies, in tow!  I not only replenish my regular, line of products, that I typically, always carry, but I also try to bring back a very small, and limited quantity of other products, as a lil bit of lagniappe, or 'something extra on the side'. 

Unfortuntately, some of these products, are purchased in such small quantities, they can become 'sold out' very quickly.  I found this to be the case, with the Stuart's Cajun Dill Pickles, which I picked up this time. They are Cajun Dill Pickles, homemade, by a Cajun, who lives long the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  I posted the information to Facebook, and the only two bottles, which I brought back, were purchased immediately!  If you would like more information on these pickles, please click here.  Rest assured, I will be sure to bring back many more bottles, on my next trip!

Here's some information on some of the NEW PRODUCTS I brought back with me. Clicking on the product image, will take you to the appropriate page within my website.  Please note this is not an exhausted list of the New Products, which can be found within my General Store, in the category of 'New Products'.  This is merely a sampling. 

  Bernard's Pure Natural Acadiana Honey is made from sweet, Louisiana honey, packaged in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, and is a Certified Cajun Product of Louisiana. 
Lakeside Mills Enriched Yellow Grits, is a family owned and 'family proud' company, located in North Carolina, and the historic mill, has been around since 1736, even feeding the Continental troops, during the Revolutionary War.  'These grits are milled in a way that preserves the unique flavor of real corn.  This process allows you to enjoy the delicious taste of old fashioned country style grits.'
 Saints Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson's Mesquite Spicy Honey BBQ Sauce, in 18 oz. bottle.  This BBQ Sauce appears to be one of those 'Louisiana & surrounding areas' exclusive products, because I have not been able to find it online anywhere, at this time.  It is distributed by the Chisesi Brothers Meat Packaging Company, located in New Orleans.   
NEW from Zatarain's-  Creole Red Gravy Mix.  New Orleans style gravy seasoned with tomato, onion, garlic, and other spices, and you just need to add water.  Cooks on the stove in minutes, and makes two cups.

 Panola Pepper Corporation's All Natural Basmati Rice with Long Grain Aromatic Rice is gluten free, and a product of Louisiana.  This rice is a wonderfully light, full-flavored, even-textured long grain rice with a delicate popcorn aroma. It combines the appeal of the texture of Louisiana long grain rice with the flavor and aroma of Asian Basmati rice, a centuries-old favorite in the Far East.
 OK, I have to admit, this product was just too fun to pass up!  I actually found this in a local Family Dollar Store, in South Mississippi, and I love the fact it is 'Soul Food Seasoning', AND has a picture of fried chicken, turnip greens, and corn on the front!  So, if it's considered 'soul food' gets this seasoning!  Gotta love that!

  Martha White Cotton Country Buttermilk Cornbread, 'just add water' mix, is easy to use in single portion bags.  Martha White has been a trusted name in Southern kitchens, since 1899, providing folks with the highest quality products.  
         Karo Syrup in both 'Light Corn Syrup' and 'Dark Corn Syrup', is now available, and these are PERFECT for making pecan pies, and candies.  Karo is a staple in the Southern kitchen.
