Personal Notes:
This simple dish was once the everyday "supper" for Cajuns. Served with milk, figs or cane syrup and even (one of my favorites) chopped pork cracklings. It was satisfying and filling. My favorite was eating it with coffee added to my milk (yes coffee milk) and lots of sugar! Repriser cela est bon!
