Three King's Day!

Today our city begins it's annual Mardi Gras celebration! Mardi Gras is on February 16th. For those who are not Catholic, today is the 12th day of Christmas and we believe that January 6th is the day the Three Kings's arrived to honor the birth of Jesus. Starting today and ending on Mardi Gras day will be King Cake parties, Magnificent Balls and of course Parades!

Here is a really good recipe for making your own King Cake:

  2. I am in Pensacola...Not toooo far from you...

    I moved here from Kansas after college and I still have never been to new orleans! I want to visit in the very near future though! I had never heard of King Cake until I moved down here. I love tradition though!

    I brought you up at dinner last night with Mary and Bandita bc a couple of years ago Mary lost her house in a fire...and I was sharing your story with them.

    Were your ears burning?

  3. Sounds yummy! I thought briefly about making one, but decided I wouldn't. Why make something I'm not going to allow myself to eat? lol
