It's Green!

No, this is not a KISS concert. A thing to do in New Orleans during the hottest days and nights of summertime is to go get a snowball (sno-cones on steroids). They are sold all over, and come in a host of delicious flavors, and the ice is shaved as fine as real snow. My wife's unnamed (but playful) sister here just finished a spearmint snowball. Her tell-tale tongue is the dead giveaway of the flavor. Me, I like chocolate cream or nectar cream best.

NOLA is very slowly emerging; the Vieux Carre was not badly damaged so it is the first to recover. This was taken near the French Market. Other parts of the city are not so fast to re-build. The scale of destruction is of epic proportion. The lack of courageous, visionary political/governmental help on every level (local, state, national) only makes a bad situation worse. So New Orleanians must celebrate what they can, where they can, and embrace life's little pleasures. Like spearmint snowballs.

Snocones...hmm looks like someone might have been kissin' toads. Very fun picture!

16 Jul 2007 11:51pm

@Lee Blades: Ha-ha! It ain't toads, man. F'sure, it's snowballs... spearmint always leaves that tell-tale green tongue. But it's not sno-cones; that's the junk that you get everywhere but in New Orleans -- just ice chunks with colored liquid sugar. Waaaay different thing. Snowballs are an art form and a summertime staple of real New Orleans cuisine, but are very much hardly known outside of the city. For the life of me, if pan-blackened fish is a hit everywhere, I don't understand how New Orleans style snowballs have not gone national.

What makes this picture for me is the expression on the face of the woman in blue jeans in the background!
