Our local Mardi Gras is celebrated in and around our neighborhood on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday. We live two blocks away from the boundary of closed streets / pedestrian only area, and so pretty early in the morning on that Saturday the streets fill up with cars and people wearing shiny beads. We stay home on this day because if we leave, we can’t come back. And so we did some homebound things, a little of this, a little of that. Some food making, some Pirate Snap. Later that afternoon some friends rescued from our solitude and drove us to E’s basketball game and invited us over for popcorn. A little tamer than our neighbors, but not a bad way to spend a cold and snowy Saturday.
Side note: There is nothing this baby won’t eat…and eat a lot of. That asparagus above – that’s for tomorrow. And if you think she won’t eat something as strong smelling as that…well – you should see that kid attack broccoli, cauliflower and spinach. She’s an eater.
Additional note: She will not, however, be having the coffee.
