Super Bowl and Mardi Gras Bread Pudding

If you know what this might be from Louisiana~
It is definitely Mardi Gras and crayfish season!
They kind of go hand in hand around here!
When I was younger, I loved Mardi Gras time, as I got older, not so much!
Now that I have grandchildren, I love it through their eyes!
And as far as crayfish...loved them my entire life...always will.
Throw me something mister...beads or crayfish...either is good!!!
Now THIS is a king for a king!

Here is a link for our local Mardi Gras parades

Did you all enjoy the Super Bowl yesterday?
I certainly did. Like most folks from South Louisiana, I am NOT a fan of
the Falcons. Sorry (not sorry) they lost. No one in history has lost a Super Bowl
with such a huge lead...except the dirty birds. Oh well, better luck next time.
And Lady GaGa...awesome half time show. I was very surprised and impressed. Of course
the news media will make it to be something it wasn't. No surprise there.
I thought she did an amazing job and is super talented..

I hope you are having a great day and the rest of your week is awesome.
The weather sure is co-operating.
Get out and enjoy it!
