Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!

While we’re sure some of you would happily spend Mardi Gras in New Orleans if given the chance, we prefer to visit the Big Easy on less crowded inebriated “festive” weekends and celebrate Mardi Gras at home. Last year Liz had a Shrimp and Grits soirée, but this year we were busy having entirely too much fun in Houston and forgot all about it! Never fear, there is still time to plan a little Mardi Gras dinner of your own…don’t forget the beads and hurricanes!
