A few nice Louisiana Sports images I found:
AT&T Building Mural – Side 1
Image by cybertoad
"Shreveport’s history and heritage can also be seen on the "Once in a "Millennium Moon" mega mural. This mural ties this area’s cultural legacy together. It is the largest public outdoor mural in the country spanning some 30,000 square feet on the 12-story AT&T building in downtown Shreveport. On the mural, the Caddo Indians, the area’s military installation Barksdale Air Force Base, and family heirlooms and community artifacts are depicted." link
"During the first two months of the Millennium Year, Meg Saligman and the staff of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council met with more than 75 organizations, interviewed hundreds of individuals about their ideas and heritage, photographed thousands of people for the mural and read every book written about this area!
Meg’s painting plan involved more than 2,600 people! She perfected a “paint by number” grid that is applied to sheets of plastic cloth. Once painted the cloth is “floated in acrylic” on the wall, much like wallpaper installation. Paint Parties were held all over Shreveport! Festival sites, parks, club meetings, art galleries, bank lobbies, and schools became home to paint sessions. The public commitment to work on the mural was awesome! More than 40% of the total mural has been painted by the community…" link
In this video, Betty describes how to make delicious Peppery Jambalaya. If you like spicy rice and smoked sausage, you will love this!
2 packages of boil-in-bag precooked rice, uncooked
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch diagonal slices
1 1/3 cups chopped cooked ham
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
14 1/2 oz. can beef broth
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
Prepare the rice, according to package directions. Drain, and cover with aluminum foil to keep it warm. While the rice is cooking, combine 1 pound smoked sausage, 1 1/3 cups chopped ham, 2 stalks of chopped celery, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and 1 chopped onion in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly, until sausage is browned and the vegetables are tender. Now, add 14 1/2 oz. beef broth, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven. (You may increase these each to 1/2 teaspoon, but it will be *very* hot!) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cooked rice. Serve on a nice serving plate with French bread. Enjoy, y’all!
