Happy Mardi Gras!
This post is going to be short and sweet since I'm meeting with one of my husband secretaries in 45 min for editing help with my manuscript. (The very sweet Tara is going to help me with some advanced Word issues I have question on).
If you are looking for some last minute ideas to celebrate Mardi Gras, then swing by Cost Plus World Market. They've got a great New Orleans display set up with all sorts of authentic foods! To round out the family fun, go to a dollar store to get a pound of beaded necklaces for the kids and then have them make crazy masks to wear at dinner tonight. The traditional Mardi Gras colors are gold, green and lavender. Whip up a few handmade decorations and have fun with it!
Here's a link to explain the history of Mardi Gras (some material for dinner conversations.)
"Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler" or "let the good times roll."
