Day 102

Beignets

Well, these French Quarter staples — really just fancy fried bread dough-ettes — were just super. (Don’t tell my husband, but that Fry Daddy came in handy again.) I used this recipe  — big thumbs up. But (I wouldn’t be me without at least one caveat) I liked them more once I filled the shaky bag with cinnamon-sugar instead of confectioners’ sugar. Even if that does mean I’d be strung up on Bourbon Street. Happy Mardi Gras!
