Sure, summer is all about being outdoors, enjoying the warm weather, pool and grilling. But in Southwest Louisiana when it’s 100% humidity and 90+ degrees outside, it’s hard to WANT to stand next to a blazing barbecue pit.

Drooling yet? Po boy sandwiches are typically either seafood or roast beef, and my favorites use a tangy, Cajun remoulade sauce. You can’t drive through
