Hi Everybody! I'm back! & what a wonderful way to celebrate today cuz its NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY! Here I am above trying to tell Mr. Big Bird that my snout is not a dark chocolate covered long-john doughnut...but he is intent on taking a nibble...
Since my peoples came back from new or leans - which is really called Naworlins by everybody that lives there, they have been telling me all about the wonderful foodables they ate...& I thought I'd share the pic above of the Beignets & Cafe au Lait from Cafe du Monde since its National Doughnut Day...Cafe du Monde is famous for these two things...& only these two things...beignets are yummy deep fried chunks of dough sprinkled (make that drenched) in powdered sugar...you can tell who has been to Cafe du Monde while walking around Naworlins cuz they all look like they have been in a flour fight...In the 4 days that my peoples were there - they ate at Cafe du Monde 3 times...I think my mom/secretary is still on a sugar high...
& lookie here! A blue doggie! There was an art exhibit of the blue doggies by artist George Rodrigue...its called RODRIGUE'S LOUISIANA:Forty Years of Cajuns, Blue Dogs, and Beyond Katrina...& there was a gallery in the French Quarter that sold his paintings of the blue doggies & they were really expensive...like $40,000...& my peoples didn't even bring one home for me...pooh.
I'm supposed to let you all know that my mom/secretary is WAY BEHIND in getting to all your bloggies...she visits but then doesn't leave comments...whats up with that? So she needs to work on that...& also work on telling you all about Naworlins in the next few posts.
Happy National Doughnut Day everyone!
Love & Licks,
