My family loves this soup. Yaka mein is a New Orleans tradition and I grew up eating it. The beauty of this soup is how simple it is to prepare. It’s such a simple recipe for a huge payoff. You can literally stop at the grocery on your way home and have dinner on the table in one-hour. The best!
You prepare your stock with meat and put all of the fixings on the side – don’t add the fixings to your pot (fixings: boiled eggs, green onions, noodles, hot sauce, and soy sauce). I used chicken and shrimp in my soup, so you can be creative with the protein. Post the pictures when you make this soup (#ChristoffDavis). Yumsters!
To commemorate K10, the 10th Anniversary of HurricaneKatrina, we are releasing giclée stretched canvas prints of my painting “Faubroug Tremé: Kerlerec Street”. Giclée Canvas prints start at just $60.

I love the poem “Litany of Our Lady” by Brenda Marie Osbey. Here is an except:
our lady of tired buildings listing to one side
and brick-between-cypress posts that simply will stand
as houses themselves give way around falling-down stairs
leaving only a something
a memory of a structure
of spanish-tiled roofs and batten shutters
in a swamp
of a city
of ironworks and of plaster
o, lady lady
our lady of anything
