Throwing Beads

{Take One!}

Happy Mardi Gras! How are you spending Fat Tuesday? I'm thinking back to a couple of Mardi Gras parties I've been to in the past, one of which my mom slaved away in the kitchen all day preparing King Cake, jambalaya and other awesomely festive goodies!

New Orleans is dear to my heart, and I so wish I were there today! Instead, I'll be working on a short story for an upcoming contest! A fair enough trade-off I guess ;)

Hmm, perhaps I'll also try to recreate the Gumbo Crepes that I had in New Orleans Square at Disneyland on Valentine's Day. Yum!

  5. Happy Mardi Gras! I love jambalaya! And the colours, and the beads! I have to admit I don't really celebrate it myself, but I love to watch! I like, live vicariously through those who do celebrate it, LOL.

  6. I attended a Mardi Gras party last weekend and has a blast! Gumbo, king's cake, and bread pudding.
