Many people have wondered, while reading this very blog, why the name "Cajun Roast Beef" was chosen to represent my thoughts on life, faith and stuff. The name comes from my favorite sandwhich, served at Pronia's, a Lake Charles, La deli. This sandwhich is a beast - loaded with cajun spiced roast beef and some sort of "special sauce" that I dare not ask the ingredients. I've been eating the CRB for years now, and it's one of the many things I look forward to partaking of when I return home for a visit.

So why name my blog after this one of a kind sandwhich? How should I know? I like the sandwhich, and I like the name. I don't have to worry about anyone else stealing the name, and it fits my personality. I love food and culture, and this blog represents my somewhat spicy and kind of unique perspective on life (at least I'd like to think so). Anyway, if you're ever in the big L.C., be sure to stop by Pronia's deli for a Cajun Roast Beef. Until then, this blog will act as the digital embodiment of the kind of strange deliciousness that you experience when eating the sandwhich itself. Mmmmmmm.

question = answered. good form!
So, being a vegetarian, I'll need you to recommend something for me at this place. I don't want to not go just because I don't eat meat.
But, alas, I'll probably never have the cajun roast beef.
I'll just continue to enjoy the blog form of it!

You forgot the best part--the sweet/hot pickles. Thanks for reminding me of LC and thanks even more for your blog. I am really enjoying it.

Oh yeah, those pickles are freaking good. Thanks for the reminder. I swear, that's the best sandwich I've ever eaten. I love that thing!
