Mardi Gras 2009 was a resounding success.

Thanks to Ewan, Leya & Leo for the pear tart.

Gracie for the bread pudding & bourbon whipped cream and beads

Don & Carol McQuinn for the homemade pralines

Braden & Lily for the French wine

We made:
- Gumbo with chicken & bacon
- Jambalaya with andouille & smoked ham
- Crab & shrimp bisque
- Roasted garlic dip

Aaron Neville, Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone & Armand were among the soundtracks

Gracie & I proudly wore out Tabasco shirts

Next - a trip to New Orleans on the 11th!
