Hammond America.....From Steaks to Science

On Friday, J & I headed to Hammond America (that’s Hammond, as in across the lake) as it is affectionally referred to by BFF MAC. My school’s Science Olympiad team participated in the State Science Olympiad hosted yearly at Southeastern Louisiana University.
We are very fortunate that friends of ours live so close to the university in downtown Hammond. Since the Olympiad starts at 7:30 a.m., it is really a pleasure to be able to crash at BFFs MAC and MA’s charming Hammond home. Our hosts are always welcoming.

On Friday evening, we were treated to a relatively new restaurant in the downtown Hammond area, The Steakhouse. The restaurant was a hit. From the charbroiled oysters, crab cakes, filets topped with crabmeat, and macaroni & cheese, the food tasted delicious. I am so happy that BFF MAC suggested this new eatery. I especially appreciated being able to order my steak by the ounce- great concept. We even were introduced to the nice owners. I am certain that The Steakhouse will be a Hammond staple for a while to come.

On Saturday, the Science Olympiad team participated in the State Olympiad. From 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., my day was full of bottle rockets, catapults, food science, towers, anatomy, and more. I am happy to report that St. Paul’s placed in the top 3 in 5 of our events. Kudos team!
