Fresh Strawberry Cake

Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten was cooked in a parking lot.  I kid you not.  After college, I moved down to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and holy cow do they know how to cook down there on the bayou!  I was born in Texas and grew up in the Carolinas, so I’ve tasted my fair share of delicious Southern food.  But I was in for a surprise when I moved to southern Louisiana. 

I was in Cajun food heaven!  To this day, the best fried fish I’ve ever eaten was cooked in the parking lot outside of LSU’s Tiger Stadium.  That same parking lot was also where I first tried alligator. LSU was playing the Florida Gators, so it was entirely appropriate that we fried up some alligator bites that day.  It was pretty good actually.  It tasted like chicken.
