Connie and I met up with Tanya for a pre-Holiday wander through Seattle's Fremont Sunday Market. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of all the wares and crafts being sold by the vendors -- not the sad assortment of cheap jewelry and bad photography I'm used to seeing at such events. The food trucks were also there and was more than happy to discover the amazing cajun food of Jemil's Big Easy. Their blackened catfish was perfectly tender with spices that tickled and heated up my tongue just right. The fries were seasoned and salted enough to taste but not overwhelm the perfect fry job done on them. And the gumbo, oooooh the gumbo. Best I've ever had -- and that includes in New Orleans! Jemil's gumbo wasn't cheaping out with a mostly broth and rice mixture, oh no! There was enough sausage in there that I had a piece in nearly every, savory, spicy, feel-good bite. Needless to say, it was the highlight of my day.
With our lunch and beer in our bellies we enjoyed the rest of our afternoon in Fremont including the flea market and a nearby antique shop. Though it was a cold, wet, December day for us this market would make a great outing for anyone, any time of the year.
