Its more about food today then crafting so here is your advance warning, I do apologize.
Its MARDI GRAS!
ITS FAT TUESDAY!
I got into the spirit and made king cakes.. which weren't as difficult as I thought! It made 4 giant cakes, though I didn't mind, I just hope that equally they shared the same great taste. I didn't put all the sugar glaze on the top, with the sugar sprinkles for two reasons... they have to be eaten faster and second- hold on to it.. ready? The resident sugar fene said it would be too much..
Apparently she knows that bikini weather is in a few months!
These are just out of the oven, and had to cool for four hours, in which they cooled overnight! RECIPE HERE: King cake
They are the size of a soccer ball, I swear! The 1SGT tried one, and then continued to eat the rest of it! You can eat them for breakfast, there is no rule saying you have to have them as dessert! So - dig in!
For dinner, I am still in the midst of making Jambalaya, New Orleans style. Yes, this is not your box mix with sausage added! I am talking about cook the chicken thighs, thaw the shrimp and get your Creole spices out !!
