Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler - Let the Good Times Roll

The last day of Carnival is today with tomorrow being Ash Wednesday - also the beginning of Lent.

Since I lived in New Orleans for a while & love, love, love the city and the people, I wanted to share a little of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras with you!

From Orpheus

From Proteus
From Zeus
From Muses
From Endymion
Dinner tonight - my red beans & rice with friends over to celebrate Fat Tuesday
A little of this to finish everything up - King Cake from Randazzo's!!
