Happy Mardi Gras!

I don’t have any new Cajun recipes to share with you all for Mardi Gras but remember this King Cake I made last year? It’s super simple and delicious. You should totally make it!

Oh, and check out the delicious food here and here that you could scarf down if you are in the Big Easy. Mmm, just looking at those posts makes me drool.

Joel and I visited New Orleans last year for the Final Four Tournament (go KU!) and had quite the time. It was a first for both of us and we were lucky enough to see the sights as well as go to the the final three games of March Madness.  The architecture of the city was amazing along with the culture. And the smell of Bourbon Street is something I will unfortunelty not soon forget. It was such a great, spontaneous trip that we will always cherish.

To celebrate a happy Mardi Gras, here are some of my favorite pictures and moments from our trip to NOLA.

Swamp tour. Gators. Turtles. Wanna know how to tempt out the gators? Hot dogs and marshmallows.
