I saw Carlita Zummo in her Easter sweater at Taste of Gumbo, so I know that spring is in the air.
Pick some flowers, plant a garden and feed the seagulls on the sea wall. Most importantly, hug a friend this season to spread some joy.
Let the chefs cook
Would you let the Golden Triangle Chefs’ Association prepare you a Cajun catfish with Creole mustard dinner for $30? Maybe you’d pick the baked chicken breast with roasted cherry tomato white wine butter sauce.
And you get to enjoy it all with Port Arthur area friends and visitors by attending Southern Summer Night, now set for 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at the Carl A. Parker Multipurpose Center. Classics Recovered and Jag will play this event to benefit Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce and the Port Arthur Seafarers’ Center.
Paige Snyder of the chamber has release more menu temptations:
Spring Mix Salad with Blackberries, Feta, Sugar and Spice Pecans, Cucumbers, Red Onion and a Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Lemon Pepper Rice
Roasted Garlic Green Beans
Chipotle Lime Corn and Carrots
