Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler, S'il Vous Plaît
Let the good times roll! It's Mardi Gras! Well, almost. Mardi Gras isn't until Fat Tuesday the 20th, the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent but that don't mean we can't throw down now!
There's three different King Cakes on the table there - the classic cinnamon, a chocolate "Krewe of Zulu" King Cake with german chocolate filling, and a strawberry cream cheese filled for those of you who like a little more sweet with your sweets. Plenty of throw cups to go around, grab a handfull of beads and someone que up the Jazz!
And since it's Carnivale (check your French--"carne" "vale," "end of meat") I've got plenty of crawfish, there's some roast pork there on the sideboard, fried pistolette rolls to make sandwiches, and even a few po'boy buns if you're really hungry. And that tray over there is a nutria I baked especially for Nancy Dancy. Mmmmm, good eatin'!
Okay, truth be told I'm not an Aquarius, I'm actually a Virgo but hey, we all have our crosses to bear, right? And who says Virgos can't party?
