And Just Like That....


....we were finished. At almost exactly 12:00 noon we put in the last stinking plank. We are battered and bruised but elated that for the most part the really hard work in the kitchen is finally done. 

I didn't waste a minute messing up my new floor. I put some Hoppin' John in the crockpot and.......

.....mixed up a bucket of beignet dough.

Kitchen or no kitchen, I wasn't letting another Mardi Gras get away. Laissez le bon temps rouler and all that. Everything is better covered in a pile of powdered sugar.


  1. Hip, Hip, Hooray! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

    C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!!!!!

    I know how excited you both must be to have all of these huge jobs done and dusted. I can't wait to see all of the "after" photos.

    Would you believe I've never had a beignet? Someday I'm going to have to go to New Orleans and go to that famous restaurant that makes them.
    I am SO happy that you have the kitchen pretty much done.

  2. YAY and CONGRATULATIONS!!! Also YUM - both the hoppin John and the beignets look delicious.

  3. The food looks yummy made in your new kitchen!!!
    So happy for you!

  4. I think you earned that Mardi Gras! Well done!

  5. Well, you DESERVED beignets after that!
