Memphis Grizzlies; Mardi Gras Style!

13 Feb

Yesterday I went to Memphis to one of those educational and informational meetings I attend during the winter.

This is a picture of the meeting room just to prove I actually attended the meeting.

This is the view out of our motel room, the FedExForum is directly across the street from the Westin. After our meeting we went across to watch the Memphis Grizzlies play the Sacramento Kings.

It was an exciting game, with Memphis coming out on top. While we were there we had a meal in the Odessa Lounge, and since it was Fat Tuesday, we were served a Cajun Buffet. It was delicious!

We had a choice of many different dishes such as Gumbo, Shrimp Etouffee, Shrimp and Grits, Red Beans and Rice, Shrove Tuesday Pancakes, Shrimp Creole, Jambalaya, King Cake, Beignets, and Bananas Foster. Not to mention several different salads, pastas, prime rib, and bar-b-que ribs. It was quite a feast, there was something for everyone. Oh, I forgot the Oysters Rockefeller. I have never tried them before because I used to not eat spinach, but I have recently discovered I like spinach so that might become one of my favorites. It is nice to get away for a day or two and go somewhere nice (especially if it is on someone else’s dime), but then it is time to come back to the homestead and get to work. Keep prepping everyone!
