"Loo zee anna" What do you think of the state of Louisiana?

What are some of your first thoughts when you hear the state mentioned or see something about it? What are some of your first assumptions when you think of Louisiana people. What do you know about Louisiana culture?
For those who don’t know: No, we aren’t popular for country music. There’s actually nothing "country" about us, unless it is some of the people who’ve moved in from the neighboring states. 🙂 Even the movies get our accents wrong. =)

As for Katrina, I know no one "mooching" off of the government from it. Trailers were given to residents after Katrina b/c they had no other place to go. *IF* the government actually gets these back they get destroyed, not even used for scraps. Whether someone lives in a Fema Trailer or not is there own business. And for some people, moving on is easier said than done.

But some people just won’t be able to understand unless they go through something similar – which I hope none of you have to do.

I think of it as a laid back, fun loving State.

What are some colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Siences as a major?

or criminal justice? Also what are some LA. colleges that offer minors in music?

Colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Science as a major include Loyola, Our Lady of the Lake, and McNeese State. Of those, Loyola is by far the best.
Colleges in LA that offer Criminal Justice as a major are listed here: http://www.uscollegesearch.org/louisiana-criminal-justice-colleges.html (under "Additional Louisiana Criminal Justice Colleges"–starting with Bossier Parish CC)
Most colleges, especially large ones, will have a music minor.

If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?

My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.

New question:
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?

Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!

Can anyone from South Louisiana tell me how to make a gumbo with roux that you buy in a jar?

I am going to attempt to cook a duck, hen, and sausage gumbo for the first time and I’m not really sure how to do it. I’ve been looking for recipes online but all of them include how to make the roux from scratch. I just wanted to use Kary’s Dark Roux. Can anyone tell me how to make the gumbo with the Kary’s roux? Thanks.

All you have to do is put your jar roux in the pan first and start with you ingredients. Usually I make it from scratch, but you can put it in the pan and add the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the vegetables are tender. Usually we have beef cubes in ours to add flavor. But to answer your question just start out with it in the pan and heat it and go from there.
