Jambalaya & King Cake = Mardi Gras

No Gravatar

A few of us here at Montelena decided to get a head start on Mardi Gras (which is Tuesday, by-the-way) with a little pre-Gras jambalaya and real New Orleans king cake on Thursday.  My co-worker, Anne (who is from Maine, not Louisiana) cooked up the jambalaya and my uncle Troy overnighted a Gambino’s king cake from New Orleans.  Thursday was a great day to work at Montelena! 

What are your plans for Mardi Gras?
