A Degree of Separation

The degree of separation between trouble and double trouble is exactly one block.

In my estimation, Big N Little (860 N Orleans) and Bad Happy Poutine (939 N Orleans) are too close for comfort.

Big N Little’s Soft Shell Poorboy sandwich is extravagance to the limit. Even a muzzled dog was sniffing for my leftovers. Totally logical that the line was out the door and Guy Fieri featured this place on Diner’s, Drive In’s and Dives.

I then wandered down the street to Bad Happy Poutine. An authentic Canadian from Hamilton calls it her own and puts out some of the best Poutine ever for the price. So glad I don’t have to travel to Canada to get good Poutine anymore. She’s threatening to do it with duck gravy soon so be sure to check back.
The surprise of the day – the shakes. I love shakes and these two were ridiculous.

The Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake: peanut butter rubbed on the inside of the glass and chocolate, vanilla bean ice cream and milk perfectly blended and then to topped off with flaming marshmallows.
The Bad Happy Birthday Cake Shake had bits of yellow layer cake and was topped off with sprinkles.
A great recipe cookbook for these amazing shakes is Milkshake Bar by Hannah Miles. 10+ recipes to try so get ready for an overload next week.
Bon Appetit!
