Happy Fat Tuesday! I hope you all had your punchki. Now I know I didn't spell that right.
The actual Mardi Gras is today with the parades in Louisiana. Which I won't be attending because I live in Michigan. But also, I hear it can get a little wild down there so I don't know if I'd go anyway. I'd just rather be safe and celebrate Mardi Gras here in my little home on Peek-A-Boo Street. =)
I'll be getting ready for my Mardi Gras party this week. It's going to be on Saturday even though Mardi Gras will be officially over tomorrow. I had a meeting for the upcoming of my son's First Holy Communion, which I could not get out of, last Saturday. So the party is going to be just a few days late this year. Maybe this will be a new tradition in the family. I don't know. I'll have to wait for that.
I got all the decorations up. I went to the store today and got all of the items that I will be needing for the menu. I will be having Chicken Jambalaya, black eyed peas with corn bread for the main meal. I will also be making my own version of a King cake. I went to the bake store yesterday and got the decorations for that. I'll take a picture of that before my guest slice into it! Who will find the King? I will let you know. For drinks I'll be making my Mardi Gras Madness Punch. I'll take a picture of that as well to show you before the guests get their dibs on that. I'll also be serving red wine, beer and pop of course. Probably Coke and 7Up, your two basic soft drinks.
My hubby will be making his appetizers which I posted about earlier. And I just bought a bag a pretzels to put out on the table. I think some of my guests wanted to bring some stuff to which was nice.
I would like to play a game of some sort for the party but I can't think of any. Any suggestion? Like a party game of some kind. What would there reward be? Beads of course! I also bought some beads that I will be giving to my guests as they come in.
I have the music for Mardi Gras. I loved the song on my blog and I looked on the back of my Mardi Gras CD and it's on there! I can't wait to play it.
So I think that's it. I think I got everything I'm going to need. What do you think? Did I miss anything?
Well I have to go dust and vacuum before I pick up my son from school. Because then I'll have to help him with his homework and get dinner going. Have a nice day.
