(Happy Fat Tuesday) Mardi Gras!

Let the good times roll today, New Orleans!

Here are some of my favorite memories & blog post as a wrap up to this Carnival Season. These are all reminders of back home!

1. Family fun-wearing mask to the parades.
2. Katrina-You are why we left.
3. Fun Mardi Gras Decor-Don't you love this wreath by Close To Home?
4. Beignets- Oh how we miss Cafe Du Monde but these feel the void
5. Jambalaya-love it
6. Endless Carnival Parades-
7. Kids dressing up for the parades-most all are family friendly
8. Party and Parades, beads, trinkets and more!
9. Truck floats
10. City Park lights
11. New Orleans Pot Roast-none like it and I make it (POSTING RECIPE SOON)
12. Bamboola-fruity slush I learned to make while living in New Orleans
13. Football-Saints! Cheesy Super Bowl dip
14. King Cakes & other sweets

These are my memories! Do you have any?

  3. Hi, you visited my blog, Hungry Happenings, and left links on two of my Mardi Gras recipes, so I was stopping by to add them to your link party. I added a link and picture, but it didn't show up. I'm not sure why. Here is the link, maybe you can check it. http://www.hungryhappenings.com/2011/02/mardi-gras-gumbo-topped-with-crowns-and.htm

  4. Thank you for inviting me to your Mardi Gras party! Was out all day Mardi Gras-ing...another one down!
