Mardi Gras

This weekend my family had a belated Mardi Gras Family Dinner at Ma's house.
.
My parents front doors are always inviting....


.
The tables too.....


Because my Ma is my Ma, we had Word Puzzles....


And the teacher in my Ma made sure we had some Mardi Gras Educatin'....



And the creative animal in my Ma made sure we had Mask Makin'....



My Ma made sure we did some Mask Paradin'.....


And we had Beads, oodles and oodles of Beads.....


And Cajun Food....


And big bottles o' drink.


Food, Fun, Family.

Dar- Scalloped potatoes may have soothed our pallets.

Ma- Have a Mardi Gras party next year, that's what!

AniC- Not really.

Crash- I have nothing on my ma. My kids complain that I don't do as much as her.

Okay, so how did your dish turn out? Remember, you are supposed to send the recipe this way. :)

i'd have to have mardi gras parties for a hundred years!
bought 12 fans---9 left
bought 10 doz beads---9 doz left
bought a buncha tatoos--a bunch left.
get my drift?
but i DO want that lasagna recipe because dad says you MAY be his fave daughter right now, that stuff was so good (he ENJOYED the leftovers sunday!)
