Hello. I'm Marshall and that's me with my lovely wife Susan on a dream vacation to Alaska. We're standing on the banks of Nooya Lake in the Misty Fjords National Monument northeast of Ketchikan, courtesy of Michelle at Island Wings. We're the Eschetes. I know. You've never seen a name like that and wouldn't even think of pronouncing it. Well it's Louisiana French. Acadian. That's Cajun to most people.
Most of the Eschetes live near Houma, Louisiana,
but my father was in the military and we moved a
lot. I now live in Alabama at the extreme southern
end of the state. We live on Mon Louis Island with
Mobile Bay to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the south,
and Fowl River to the west and north. I know
you've heard the famous Admiral David Farragut quote, "Damn the
torpedoes, full speed ahead"! According to Historians it's much more
likely that he said "Damn the torpedoes!. Four
bells, Captain Drayton". Well whatever he said, he
said it in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay on August 5,
1864 at a spot
not far from
On to other things.
I'm no chef but I like to cook. Over the years I have collected quite a few recipes. I’ve assembled some of them here. Mostly it is for us to find our favorite recipes, but you are more than welcome to see if anything strikes your fancy. Check out the links to the below.
