Mardi Gras time!

First, hit play and this will get you in the mardi gras spirit. Then you can read this post as you listen...



The front entry is all ready for Mardi Gras.



I'm so sad that I didn't think to keep all of my mardi gras/new orleans related ornaments handy so that I could have done a mardi gras tree. Mardi gras usually falls right in the middle of valentine's decorations, but this year would have been the perfect time to go all out.

I also ate a Mardi Gras style meal on Friday night. I picked up some stuff at Central Market and man, oh man, was it good!

Crawfish, Crab & Brie bread pudding with a roumalade sauce on top
Red Beans & Rice
Apple, Endive and Walnut salad with dijon mustard dressing

Happy Mardi Gras Y'all! 

laissez les bon temps rouler
(there seem to be about a zillion spelling variations of this Cajun saying, but we all know I'm saying "Let the Good Times Roll" right?)

Emery would like a lesson in mardi gras. I did a terrible job of describing it too her! Next year we will celebrate with you!

I love Mardi Gras! This is the first time in awhile, that I haven't gotten a king cake and I'm regretting it!

Love your Mardi Gras wreath! So cute!
