A Most Delicious Cafe' au Lait



These last couple of mornings  I've been enjoying a delicious cafe' au lait made with Cafe' du Monde coffee.   The can photographed above was recently purchased from our local Fresh N Easy, but MacGyver husband and I first enjoyed the coffee and chicory during a trip to New Orleans last August.


We went to New Orleans for a summer weekend to celebrate my birthday.  I immediately fell in love with the beautiful sights, the friendly people, and the delicious food.  Drinking my cafe' au lait this morning brought back memories of our fun trip, especially the delicious beignets and chicory coffee at Cafe' du Monde.  As you can imagine, it was a rather hot and humid August morning (note my frizzy hair!), and we had to wait in line for quite awhile, but the delicious coffee and fresh beignets were worth it!  If you ever have the opportunity to visit New Orleans, you simply can't leave without a tasty treat from Cafe' Du Monde.  And don't be surprised if you must go more than once (We went twice during our 3 day stay!).

  1. Yum. I've just set the coffee maker for our 5:30 wake up. Suddenly, my boring coffee doesn't seem nearly as lovely as your warm beverage. Such fun memories of your trip.
