Time to break out the beads, blow up the balloons, and blast the jazz and blues!
You know how Jess and I love to get festive for the holidays!
And since we visited New Orleans in 2011, we can't let a Mardi Gras go by without celebrating... Southern-style!
We made some Cajun inspired treats--jambalaya and mini-muffulettas--which we washed down with a couple of glasses of ice-cold sweet tea.
And how can you celebrate Mardi Gras without traditional King Cake? Well, you simply can't! My dear friend Teah got the piece with the baby this time around, which means she'll be bringing this scrumptious dessert to the party next year.
We even put on a little holiday makeup to mark the occasion!
Of course we look for any reason to celebrate life with family and friends!
And we wish YOU, our fabulous friends, a rolling good time on this Fat Tuesday!
It's Mardi Gras!
