Ragin' Cajun

Welcome to the Bowman's New Orleans Grill.
Tonight's Special is a Courtbouillon (pronounced coo - be - yon) of celery, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic clove, and tomato sauce served over long grain white rice. The cost is $25.00. Your chef is well trained in food preparation and takes his job very seriously.

Pardon? You are asking what kind of meat is in the dish? I'm so sorry, ma'am. I'll show you.

It has the texture and look of turkey. But it's not turkey.
It's turtle.

After $7.00 in chicken livers and $18 in trot line hooks, Drew finally caught a snapping turtle in the pond.

WORD POLICE WARNING: The word "ain't" is used in this video twice. Sadly, the first time is me. I apologize. I'm blaming it on my nerves. I was a little jumpy.

WARNING: A turtle WAS harmed in the making of these videos.

Oh. my. cow. I love your husband's accent "You gotta wack him, I mean you gotta wack that thing". I was both cracking up and throwing up at the same time. LOL! I think I'll buy my turtle at Dorothy Lane Market, thankyouverymuch.
