After eating my first Blackened Po Boy in New Orleans I could not wait to experiment with the Blackening technique! So I did a little researching and discovered what has now become one of my favorite meals!

From the moment my chicken hit the hot skillet and started blackening around the bubbling butter I knew this would be a huge hit in my household!

I used these recipes:

These Rum & Pineapple cocktails were probably one of the strongest drinks we consumed during our trip! After a night out on the town, we decided to get one more drink in the lobby of the Sheraton New Orleans and couldn’t even finish them! We normally drink 3-4-1’s in 32oz cups but the bartender decided three shots of rum wouldn’t hurt us. When I woke up the next morning, both cocktails were still sitting on the counter. I guess we had enough alcohol for one day!
