Thanks alot Dr. Phil. There are 19 more days until Mardi Gras and you are already dressed up reminding me that I have to start prepping for the massive amount of cooking necessary for making Cali feel like New Orleans.

Cafe Dumond beignet mix- check. Red beans and rice fixins- on the list. Pralines ingredients- check. King cake ingredients- on the list. Rememberin' to check the Parade Cam- written on a sticky placed on my monitor. Kermit Ruffins CD- in the home stereo.

Just a reminder, Krew du Vieux rolls Saturday at 18:30.

Dr. Phil was doing me a favor. We agreed that dressing up early for Mardi Gras might confuse Mother Nature to end winter early. Or we could get the predicted 8 inches of snow tonight.

Good try, Dr. Phil.

Red beans and rice fixins- on the list.
Thank goodness I didn't see the word "mix" next to red beans and rice.
Boxed red beans and rice would definitely get you on the naughty list!

I do mix my own seasoining blend. I must confess that I use my buddy's hand made hot links because I have trouble getting real andouille out here in avocadoland.

There is an evil aisle at the store that has "red beans and rice" mix, canned "roux" and packaged "polenta." I wince everytime I walk by the shelves overflowing with apostates.

I have to say I used to always make my roux, but once I was in a hurry and bought a jar of Savoie's.... There's no going back once you cross over to the dark side. It's too easy and it doesn't make the whole house smell like roux.

Come on, try it, you'll love it.

ETA: BH is now insisting that he likes the home made roux better. I swear I can't tell the difference but I will make it the next time I make gumbo just to see. Only because I love him though because I HATE stirring, and stirring, and stirring....forever.

Jrazz, they look purty OK but the true test comes tonight when we eat one at work.

Empress, thank you.(and see above )

KBFF, since it is my first attempt I went with a traditional cinnamon, sugar and raisin filling.(No pecans because a co-worker has a tree nut allergy )

The final tally: 17 qts of red beans done, five batches of prawlins(one without pecans) done, two king cakes done and beignets mixed and ready to fry. Defiantely puttin' the gras in Mardi Gras, Cali style.
