Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras season is almost over. I don't have any big love affair with the season but I do like king cakes & I've determined that my most favorite thing about Mardi Gras is all of the king cake flavored things. I've mentioned the king cake cake balls from Brou-ha-ha. They are really better than any king cake I've ever had. Then there's the king cake cheesecake from Cheesecake Bistro. I think it may be my favorite king cake concoction. The other night Dean & I went to Fat Cow. I had a Groupon that was going to expire. They have good burgers but I saw they had a wedge salad & I do love a good wedge. I decided to have that & add some grilled chicken.

It was delicious!!!! When we ordered I saw a large sign that said King Cake Shakes are here. HUH????? Have I mentioned how much I love a good shake? Haven't had one in forever because I made the mistake of looking up calorie content on a Chic-fil-a chocolate shake. Fat Cow doesn't have one of those shake machines like the fast food joints. They actually mix them by hand & use real ingredients. Hmmmm. Once I was almost through with my salad I told Dean "I'm going to need one of those shakes". It was soooooo freakin good.

Not a great pic but I took this in the truck because I wanted a picture before I ate it. Cute huh? I love sugar crystals. I've added this to my list of Mardi Gras things I must have every season.

Tomorrow night I'll be having king cake bread pudding. I saw on Facebook that Roberto's has it. Earlier in the week Dean texted me a picture of it. I thought for sure he'd gone for lunch & had gotten me a piece to go. I was wrong. A vendor brought a bunch to his office. Then I thought he was going to bring it home to me. I mean why would he send me a picture of it knowing I've been wanting to try it??? I was wrong. He was eating it because - and I quote - "It was still warm ". He did follow that up with we'll go soon so you can have a piece. So, soon is tomorrow night after the LSU game. My mouth is already watering!!



  1. Wow! You're making me hungry! Mardi Gras isn't big here...but one day I'd love to visit your area during the season and experience it! have a great day!

  2. Why did you do this to me? 6 weeks today without sugar. Ugh!
