This past Sunday, I finished reading The House on First Street by Julia Reed, which I mentioned in my previous blog, A Little Summer Reading. I have to say I really enjoyed the book, and would highly recommend it to someone who enjoys a little Southern History, a wee bit of tasty Cajun/Creole culinary, and, most importantly, the heartache of renovating your dream home in a city that is full of charm, allure, beauty, and perhaps a little foolishness! Last week, Stylecourt wrote a lovely review of some of Julia’s collection pieces from Lucullus Antiques and also included one of Julia’s recipes for a primm's royale--yum! After reading Stylecourt’s blog. I remembered the House & Garden July 2006 that featured Julia’s home, and the long table that seated twenty! Ironically enough, I was reading the House & Garden while the hubby, Rolle, and I were heading to the Crescent City for a wedding. Anyway, following are a few pictures from the article “New Orleans Stomps and Joys” from House & Garden July 2006 issue! Oh, the hubby and I did stop by Casamento’s, but they were closed! Maybe next time!
