You're All Invited!

Don't you know if you lived closer that I would invite you to my Mardi Gras party?
I truly love all of my blogging friends. And I would invite each and everyone of you if that was at all possible.
Although...there a select few who have sought me out since I've began blogging in August of 2008. Don't you just love those bloggers who sought you out and stuck with you. Well lets just say through bad posts and good! =)
Of course I had my mom-in-law ♥ cheering me on at and my daughter who started her blog before me at
There are three other ladies, who really have very much touched me, with who they are, and their blogs in the past six months. There is something special about these ladies that make me want to keep going back to their blogs. They might suspect who they are. I don't know. I'm a pretty good judge of character. Yeah, yeah, I know it's just blogging can kind of tell who that person is by their blog. Ok, ok so you want to know who these three ladies are. I'm sure you all know that I am Catholic. These woman may not be and that is OK by me. But these woman have helped me in a "Catholic" way. ALL three but especially one. Ok I've said it!!!!!!! The three woman who I am talking about...enough suspense...!!!...In no particular order..., and Thank you ladies.
"Pat" at I love your blog. My favorite post of your blog was...............=) This was one of the best posts I have ever read so far in blog land. With all do respect,...Girl, now that's what I'm talkin' about! That post of yours moved me. Not only did it make me think about my mother and daughter, but you shared with us what is most important. Just to be yourself.
Okay, OK moving forward...
I have been cooking all darn day in the kitchen. See... us northern girls like southern food. I've made this today for tomorrows party. I'm having my Mardi Gras party tomorrow. I had so many sleepless nights worrying about the food that I'd prepare for my Mardi Gras Party. Pizza vs.'s authentic food. Looky, looky. With a few St. Bridget prayers, I was good to go. It all just fell into place....some how...

Chicken Jambalaya...

Black eyed peas w//// bacon!!!!!!

Okay...with hot corn bread fresh out of the oven. Got to make another batch to make sure I have enough.

See, us Northern people love southern cookin'. What really seem to fall into place was the tin dishes that I had in my cupboard for something I ended up not using until now. Talk about perfect. Just look how that Chicken Jambalaya just fits in that tin perfectly. I can't even remember what I bought these tins for.
Okay, Okay I can't forget to show you the star of the show. The King cake! Well my version of it anyway. Oh don't get me wrong. There is a little 'King' in there...but I forgot where. I made two cakes to make sure that I had enough for all of my guests, right. Well the one that is showing is the one with the 'King' in it....I'm sure. Well the problem is that I even forgot where in the heck the 'King' is in 'the cake!!!!!!'
You see when I was decorating it, I thought I was smart. I thought the mark with the frosting on the plate is where the King is going to be. So I was frosting, and frosting...and frosting away and thinking...'Boy this frosting job is really turning out nicely. Well...when I was done frosting...there was frosting all over the plate! So afterward I was like freaking out!! Oh my gosh, where in the heck is the King?!? The frosting got every where on the plate when I was done!!!
Oh darn! Where in the heck is that King? I know what cake. It's the one with the gold crown in the front. But honestly I don't know where it is. I'm signing off...from Peek-A-Boo Street!
P.S. Mom, no peeking!!
