“I see a difference in the food between Texas and Louisiana. Back at home we would eat like hot sausage, eggs, smoked sausage. We could just go to the store, buy it and go home and do it ourselves. When I came out here, now it’s different. We couldn’t find it and then like when my dad came to visit, he would bring us this ice chest with hot sausage, smoked sausages like the stuff that we used to make a home they didn’t have it out here until we went to Fiesta and found out Fiesta had it. So we can have a piece of home in Texas.”
