Mardi Gras in July.....in Indiana

WHOOOOOOHOOO! We had a Mini-Mardi Gras at our house last night! Be sure to check out our FREEZER BLOG today because it goes hand in hand with our entry here about BEIGNETS (pronounced Ben-YAYs)!

You may remember a few weeks ago when Heather and Harry sent us a special care package (CLICK HERE). Mom made red beans and rice for dinner and decided that it was time to bust out the beignet mix and get to work.

Here she is giving them their powdered sugar dusting after they were cooked......

TAH-DAH!!

Before they were ready for tasting...mom made some iced cafe au lait (JUST like they serve at Cafe Du Monde...home of the beignet!)

Ok...sample time.........

Daddy said he felt like he was sitting in the French Market in N'awlins and Holden just said "OMG!"


Then it was MY turn!

Are you KIDDING ME with these???? These are freakin' AMAZING!


The worst part about beignets (well aside from them being like a bajillion calories each) is that you get wicked "powdered sugar face".....as seen here......

...and here....

That's ok though....it's totally easy to just lick it off!

Actually I'm real impressed by that powdered sugar face. Normally when I eat powdered sugar covered goodies I am wearing black, and then also wearing the powdered sugar. Oh, also, I usually tend to inhale it also, which leads to a sneezing fit. That said, those goodies look soooooo yummy!!

Well I say, Salinger! What a wonderful N'Awlins treat!! We are tres jealous!

Stubby said...

Salinger dude - You look like you really enjoyed your beignet! It's a good thing you are not watching your weight or else you would have skipped a taste. I have never had a beignet, so feel free to ship any extras to me.

Sal!

You crack me UP, man! I'm thinking I'd be gnabbing me several beniets. That powdered sugar face of yours was pretty cute, but it's NOTHING compared to your "I don't want to be getting any shots" face when you were at the vet office.

I also noticed that the look you gave Joey the bird is suspiciously similar to the looks you threw my way when we met back in May. What is UP with that, man?

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Yum!!!! I don't gets it... how come my Mom hasn't made beignets for me? I's being neglected again!!

Mom says she's glad everypuggie and person enjoyed the beignets. Hope the hike on Sunday helped burn some of those calories offs!
