16 Signs You’re a Proud Cajun Mama

1. Cajun music is the soundtrack for cooking your gumbo.

2. You tell your children the Rougarou will come to get them when they misbehave.

3. You save the dishes — and don’t ask “from what?”

4. Your children request crawfish étouffée or rice and gravy instead of hamburgers and hot dogs.

5. The kitchen always smells good and is open 24/7.

6. You keep sweet tea in the fridge at all times.

7. You’re known for asking why your children have a boudé (boo-day) on a bad day.

8. You just offered someone a third helping.

9. You cook no less than 8 cups of rice at a time (maybe even 10) — no one is leaving your house hungry.

10. When your children grow up and move out, they still bring their families to your house to enjoy a home-cooked meal. (You’re working on teaching your daughter-in-law how to make rice and gravy.)

11. Your 10 best dishes are made with rice.

12. When you know it’s spelled “cher bébé” but still pronounced “sha baby.”

13. You offer two kinds of seasoning: well seasoned and very well seasoned.

14. You measure ingredients in “pinches” of this and “dashes” of that. Math ruins the magic.

15. Your cooking is just as popular with the neighbors as it is with your family.

16. Everyone assumes family gatherings will take place at your house… and you wouldn’t have it any other way!
