We went to this place and had a platter of today's fresh cheeses, meats, a bottle of wine and several specialty breads.

We had a stir fry with noodles. I stirfried some thinly sliced fillet, onion, garlic, celery,green & yellow pepper, carrot, chestnut mushrooms & broccoli. Served it in a sauce of own making which DW was very complimentary (doesn't often happen).

I asked her once if she thought I was a good cook, followed by a long silence and you are OK but put some strange things together.

Elaine, you'll have to tell us how you liked Spamalot.

We're having homemade split pea soup with lots of ham and the last of the N.Y. Times bread. Looks like I'll have to make more bread tomorrow.

It's Mardi Gras here!!!!!

Andouille Stuffed Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Coins

Fried Eggplant slices topped with Shrimp Etouffe

Onion crusted Rabbit served over wilted greens, with andouille grits and maques choux.

I have bacon topped cornbread to serve with dinner. I made a King Cake to give as 'goody bags' to my guests as they leave.

Dessert is bananas foster (with the fire extinguisher handy) and praline bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Martel Cordon Bleu will accompany dessert.

Laissez le bon temps roulé!!!!

Not sure, but part of the meal is going to include parmesan garlic cheese fries. I might roast some garlic to go on the fries. Yum!!

We're having boiled shrimp and a salad with avocado. I might make guacamole and use it for a salad dressing.
We get by with a little help from our friends
