A Bon Mardi Gras!
I hosted a Zatarain's Mardi Gras House Party on Friday, February 17. It was a fun food-fest, with my friends bringing some wonderful cheeses, pie, salad & adult beverages, inc. a fantastic 'thunderstorm' (a faux hurricane, get it?). I made red beans/rice, yellow rice, salmon cakes, gumbo, & mardi gras cupcakes. I used Zatarain's mixes for all the entrees/sides. For the gumbo, I sauteed celery, pepper & onion, and also added chicken, hot sausage and shrimp. YUM!
Dang! I ran out of time to put on makeup!
Even Moose dressed up for Mardi Gras!
My friends...I had some cute decorations, but of course I didn't snap enough photos!
The food table; you can see the brie & cupcakes, but not the gumbo & buffet!!
