    Swish, okay so that makes sense. She will love her time alone at home I just don't see how she could pass up your mighty fine cookin' Please make sure you pack her up a Cindy-bag of leftovers! She can enjoy your delights this way. Come to think of it honey it will be nice for you to get some one on one time with the parents and Cindy some sacred alone space with the dogs. We all know she needs and appreciates it. Will your bf be attending??? meet the parents style???

    I will be  but I will have to tinker with it to get it right again. Once I have, I'll share.

    Change of plans but in a very good way.. I'm hosting a real FAT Tuesday Feast tomorrow so I will have to start prepping early in order to get things done on time tomorrow. Menu has been specially revamped and has us all drooling at the chops in eager anticipation lol 5 course pre fix meal and a special key lime pie from Marie Calender's...this is going to be some gooooooood stuff and the overall feast is a real splurge. Why not top the food coma off with some fersh key lime pie called in that morning to pick up that day? Cajun chowdown, be there or be square.

    Re: Mardi Gras Plans

    Brandy, I have it all laid out in a word document for the invitation copy earlier but Stretcher doesn't allow the formating and it's a lot to type out so I will post details on the dinner forum tomorrow and leav eyou with a quick version...5 course, small plate style

    1. Creole eggs - think deviled eggs with red pepper relish/creole spices
    2. Candied (honey/cinnamon/sugar) fresh cut nectar and pecan salad with spring greens, garden herb and white peach balsamic drizzle
    3. Homemade slow cooker crazy craving crab and corn chowder - the best ever, can't wait
    4. Apple-Gouda-Shrimp-Chicken Sausage-Veggie Cajun Casserole w/whole grain penne or veggie spirals and cajun alfredo cream sauce... I bought collard greens today to sautee w/carmelized onions
    5. Key lime pie served way later

    Will be a lot of work but worth it. Courses stretched out and served small plate style anyways.

    What free fish did you get? what coating will you be using to fry your fish and shrimp?
