More Cajun Words
Ok folks, these all deal with food.
Cafe au lait (kah-fay oh-lay) coffee with milk, or coffee milk as my Mom called it. We would dip our hot buttered toast into it. We were too young for full strength coffee, so it was served with a lot of milk.
Cochon De Lait (koh-shon-due-lay).it refers to a pig roast, of a suckling pig, slow roasted over an outside fire. The pig is hung over a hickory fire so the fat will drain out and drip into the fire causing the flames to raise again and smoke, thus crisping and flavoring the pigs skin turning it the color of dark honey.
COUCHE COUCHE (koosh-koosh).....a cajun cornmeal cereal, usually eaten with milk and/or syrup.
ETOUFEE (ay-too-fay)....literally means "smothered....a dish of onions, celery, garlic, and green peppers sauteed, in oil or butter, with a roux based sauce. It's usually made with shrimp or crawfish and it too is served over rice.
