Watch Out for the Gator Baby

A funny little nugget from the New Orleans trip.

On Friday, Steve and I were at the art museum and stopped at the museum cafe for lunch.  Since it was a Lent Friday, we were looking for seafood options. It was a very small menu and Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo looked good.  Hey, is gator seafood or meat?

Steve posted the question on his facebook page and sparked some debate.  Gator is cold blooded, not a mammal, but it has lungs. Also, it seems that sausage is meaty. Can Alligator be on the allowable list?  Since my niece was in the middle of her heart surgery, I wasn't in the mood for Flexi-Lent.  Finally, we got it confirmed that gator is okay.

And delicious.
