Several years ago, pre-Katrina, Sandi and I had the opportunity to go to New Orleans in the weeks before Mardi Gras. We stayed in a lovely Bed and Breakfast, visited a float factory (who knew?), wandered around the French Quarter and took part of much of what New Orleans had to offer.
This year, I have created a Mardi Gras basket, hearkening back to that trip. It has beignet mix and chicory coffee from Cafe du Monde, Hurricane mix and jambalaya mix. We pair that with a wide assortment of celebration worthy snacks for a festive off season gift. This is a great way to send that thank you gift that you may have overlooked during the holiday season. Mardi Gras is Tuesday March 5th this year, so don’t delay!
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
