    I was sitting back in my chair and actually sat up straight so I could read this properly and take notes. 🙂 I'm bookmarking this page so I can go back and look at the recipes more closely as party time comes. I'll need something to take and these all work for me. I'm going to go look at that breakfast bread pudding now though. I LOVE breakfast foods!

    Going to Mardi Gras is one of the things on my to-do-before-I-depart-this-world list. Never have been, but I can tell you one thing. When I do get there for Mardi Gras, I'm coming over to your house to eat! I'll take one of everything you've got listed here. Yum! And thanks for including my lil' ole cinnamon rolls 🙂

    Wow, what a fabulous list! I've always wanted to check out Mardi Gras in Mobile, and these menus certainly would be a draw! And thanks for the great links and kind mention, cher! Happy Mardi Gras!
