(Me, outside of Cafe de Monde, maybe 6 years ago. Our two oldest and one of our nephews are in the background.)
At a recent grocery trip I literally almost walked passed a sweet find. We went to New Orleans, oh golly, maybe 5-6 years ago with our East Coast family for Christmas. It was a wonderful experience. Our country is so uniquely different with each passing state. Driving from New Mexico through Texas into Louisana was great. From dry, dusty desert to water, swamps, and water everywhere. Our travel got green and green with every mile.
Like good tourists, we spent our fair share of time in the French Quater. One of the famous places there is Cafe de Monde. A historic coffee and beignet shop. Of course, we had to try. Now if you’ve never tried or heard of beignets here’s the Wikipedia definition: Beignet, synonymous with the English “fritter”, is the French term for a pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry. Beignets may also be made from other types of dough, including yeast dough. So, what a nice treat to stumble upon a mix of these nice treats.
Will have to make these real soon before two of our East Coast family heads back.
