I woke up this morning and it was so bright and sunny out. Still cold here at just 34 degrees but I found myself wishing I was in New Orleans. I wanted some cafe au lait and beignets for breakfast at a table on the riverwalk overlooking the mighty Mississippi. Alas I do not have the time or money for the trip right now, but I did the next best thing. Some friends are coming over later and I am making homemade beignets lol. I have the Cafe du Monde coffee here so we are going to have a special little treat this afternoon. I love being in the kitchen!! I will let you know how they turn out and more pics to come!
