For this year’s Spring cooking party Linda decided toLaissez les bon temps rouler with a Mardi Gras party!  Juan opened his home to probably 50 of his closest friends who proceeded to enjoy the food and company like there was no tomorrow.  Of course, there was a tomorrow, so we continued the party!  Some stayed overnight, but we ran home to enjoy our own bed, then ran back in the morning. I missed getting pics of lots of it, but here’s what I managed to capture. Each picture opens to the full sized bad-boy so you can drool on your keyboard if you so choose.

    Receipe collation has commenced and hopefully my transposing didn’t create too many bugaboos…..always exciting when the recipe isn’t doing what you expect. I’ll forward add’l recipes (Madeleine, Susan, Bean on the hook).

    I’d like to try that whole dinner again, all at once.

  4. For those having difficulty with the size of the originals, I’ve sized them down and reduced the quality a bit so they should open easily now.
