I'm kind of late to my own party....we already have a few who've kicked things off. Remember to look at the bottom of the post for links to other cool bloggers who are celebrating Mardi Gras with me. And if you have anything Mardi Gras to share please link up with us! It's been a busy busy day and I haven't sat down for more than a few minutes at a time, but I have been trying to spread my celebrating over the weekend so let's get started!!
Throw me something Mister!!!!
How about we start with a little brunch. New Orleans is famous for their brunches and if you ever get the chance you've got to try it. There are a lot of places that do it..many, many, many. Court of Two Sisters is one I've been too. The food is great and so much variety it would make your head spin. My little brunch is pretty tame comparatively. Cheese & Ham grits...John Folse's Cat's Head biscuits and your basic scrambled eggs.
Celebrating (for anything) in Louisiana is all about the food..and drinks! I thought you might like to see 3 Louisiana made products I really wouldn't want to be without. I put Tony's on everything.
So on to the main course! If I was back home in Louisiana I would have been eating some barbecue...probably a little bit of everything..ribs, hamburgers, maybe some chicken. But it was a rainy rainy day here so I did a rainy day Monday kind of thing...Red Beans and Rice.
And it wouldn't be Mardi Gras without a little King Cake and this time I really do mean LITTLE. Instead of one big one I made three babies!
I used a Southern Living recipe that I really like.
Thanks for joining me for Mardi Gras! One more day to party!
