What I'm Drinking Tonight

How could I resist a wine named "Ball Buster"? Especially when it's from the Barossa Valley, is 60% Shiraz, 19% Merlot and 21% Cabernet Sauvignon? I couldn't. And neither should you. For the modest outlay of $15 you get a full bodied, spicy smooth cedary fruity wine that is just yum yum yum. Plus, it's Australian. What's not to love? I'm eating a big plate full of chicken anduille sausages right now with some rice and black beans, and this wine is shouting out "laissez roulez les bon temps" which I think translates as "Damn I'm thirsty! Lemme' fill up that glass again!"

Laissez les bons temps rouler, actually.
In your unique case lache pas la patate (or don't drop the potato) is more appropriate, n'est pas?

Ken, in your case that would be 'zay eet eez not zo, eezternpeegdogs!'

Laissez les bons temps rouler is specific to New Orleans, so actually Creole rather than Cajun. Although the recipe itself sounds more Cajun.

tree hugging, perhaps you mean Fetch-e la vache!?

No, in your case I heard "Non, je ne suis pas une marin Ecossais!" (No, I am not a Scottish sailor!)

Je me permets quelquefois de réfléchir entre mes repas, ce qui me fait perdre énormément de temps. ( Sometimes I allow myself to reflect between my meals, which makes me waste time enormously.)

I hear a fried oyster calling. Gotta go.
