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!
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 great to visit and mark off the bucket list but it’s one of those places that I don’t feel like I ever need to go to again. Don’t get me wrong, it was lots of fun but the drinking, stripping, party all night scene is not for me.
To celebrate 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.
Mmmmm, rum tour.
Random NOLA jam session that broke in the rain. Awesome.
Bourbon Street craziness.
Beautiful doors of the French Quarter.
