mardi gras supper club

last saturday night rolled around like no other. it was time for our supper club get-together hosted by music mama and selena. the theme: mardi gras. since we all have kids and couldn't get away to drink irresponsible in NOLA or mobile, we celebrated the best way we know how...bama style, baby! the location took place in music mama's home, and the place was decked out in mardi gras flair. i swear it was a very close second to bourbon street itself. everyone came dressed up, some in full costume, some with beads and booze. seis won the costume contest in which she was awarded the biggest baddest bead necklace you've ever seen. here is a preview of all things mardi gras...okay so let's talk about the menu, shall we? it was awesome and consisted of shrimp and grits, crab cakes, jambalaya, corn bread, mashed potatoes, baked oysters, salad, freshly made beignets, and king cake. the hubster even bought some yummy pat o'briens hurricane mix and made them once we got there. they were made from the original recipe and stout as hell. or should i say, "strong. like bull." everything was SO delicious and all around perfect. oh, and i found the tiny baby in my king cake...noticed it at around the 3rd bite. yay for me and some good luck. maybe this means i will win at next month's bunco!overall, i'd have to say that it was the best damn supper club yet! so much to say, but i swear it feels like my head is still foggy from that night. all i know is that i am still laughing at all the hysterical pictures everybody has been uploading to facebook. from dancing to some awesome cajun music, to exchanging beads and magical flying hats, to attempting a game of "H-O-R-S-E" on MM's kid's miniature basketball goal, to drinking ourselves silly and acting like fools, IT. WAS. A. BLAST. so much fun that i overslept till noon the following day. yes, you've heard right, i said noon. haven't done that since...well, definitely before having kids, that's for sure!so here's to you, my fellow supper-clubbers...ya'll just don't know how truly happy ya'll make me. these events just keep getting better and better, and this is proof in itself that we can bring mardi gras to the salty hambone. gotta love it!!
