Is it Friday yet?
It really needs to be Friday. Now you may shake your head at me and tell me I just had a weekend, but after my day today, I need this weekend.
A four day weekend. Oh yeah, I got one coming up. Man I love carnival time!
Now for those of you that have no clue as to what I am talking about, it has a little bit of this…
and a little bit of this……
a little bit of this….
and a whole lot of this…..
Mardi Gras! All of you guys put in for your vacation time for next Monday & Tuesday. Head on down to my house, and let’s celebrate carnival like only a true Louisianian can do!!
To get things kicked off I decided to bake a nice little treat for the boys.
Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

- favorite icing or homemade recipe
- ice cream cones
Mix the cake mix according to package directions. Place about 1/8 of a cup of batter into each ice cream cone. Bake until the cake springs back when touched, or a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool completely and decorate with icing and sprinkles.
I am currently working on cleaning up the guest room, changing the sheets, stocking up on wine (and beer for the guys), king cake, beads, and music. I am looking forward to a parade and great times. Come on down to LA and join me…I’ll leave the light on for you!
