All of my New Orleans friends have awesome photos of Mardi Gras posted on Facebook. I looked at them longingly, thinking of how awesome it was when I went in 2010, right before I moved home.
Dave received the following email and thought of me:
He promptly made reservations when he saw me light up at the mention of crawfish etouffee.
We arrived to a very festive atmosphere last night and lots of purple, green and gold and I had a great view of SportsCenter so I was a happy camper.
Then they rolled out the menu. And do you know what I had?
One of everything.
Seriously. I was under the impression we picked from each category. Nope, not so. We were served everything, family-style. Though Dave and I are convinced they pre-portioned everything for groups of four so the two of us got huge portions of everything.
Take a look at my dinner menu last night (and subsequent lunch today).
Yea. All that.
In a shocking turn of events, we left completely stuffed.
In other news, I miss easy access to crawfish.
Was it as good as it sounds? Did you wear a mask???
I MISS N’awlins, and Mardi Gras!! Lived there 3 years and have attended 8 Mardi Gras!!
Hope Farmstead does that again next year, we’re goin!
