Let the Good Times Roll, Cher !

It was an incredible, exciting weekend in Cajun Country! Three Mardi Gras parades and the SAINTS WINNING THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!!! WOOOOO- HOOOOO! GEAUX SAINTS!!! WE DAT!, CHER!
And this is the black and gold, king ake (filled with chocolate Bavarian cream) that I served at my Superbowl party. Cest bon, cher! I have lots of pics to share, but just to give you an idea of the electricity in the air, here is a little clip of one of the many Saints parties, that pretty much sums up how everyone in Louisiana is feeling right about now! And this victory party is just beginning and will be going on until midnight on Mardi Gras night! Wish you all were here! Merci beaucoup for stopping by and stay tuned!
Lassiez les bon temps rouler!!!

Woo hoo! Here in the Pac NW, everyone I know rooted for the Saints! I know how you guys feel, and it's great!

Well done the Saints! Also, England won the opening game of the Six Nations rugby against Wales on Saturday. English rugby (like your football but no helmets or padding) competition between the 6 nations of England, Scotland Wales, Ireland, France and Italy. Looking forward to England winning the series, but still a few games to go.

What a great game and so exciting for the folks down South, particularly the city of New Orleans.

Congratulations girlfriend!!!!! Casa Hice was cheering LOULDY for the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl. We also sent out some powerful New Orleans JuJu by making your delicious Mama's Shrimp Stew recipe! Larry insisted that we add some Andouille and serve it over cheese grits {you can take the boy out of the country, but you can NOT take the country out of the boy}, and it was awesome. Better than awesome. I was even able to find Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning here at Publix!

Anyway - thanks so much for the recipe, chica. Casa Hice is putting this recipe in the vault for safe keeping. I plan to make it often.

Long live the Saints!!!!

I love you!!

Congratulations!!! I stopped by to let you know how excited I was when the Saints won the Super Bowl. There is no team more deserving. Cheers to Louisana!!
I bet the city is rocking.

Just so you know, my dear, this old Yankee, who is normally a devout Redskin fan, with the Steelers being in a close race there -was rooting all along for the Saints and they did come through -marching in, big time! Good game, great win!

K.- So good to hear from you! Woo-hoo is right! Everyone went wild, here! It was so much fun! And how about "The Who" half-time show!? Thanks for coming by, cher!

John- It was an awesome game! Hope you got to see some of it! Congrats on the rugby win and good luck on the series!

Cal. Girl- One of my friends was in New Orleans, last night, and she said that it was pure pandemonium! Very exciting! Thanks for stopping by, cher!

Alix- Omg, what a night, it was! We Dat, cher! Woo-hoo! And I am so happy that you made the shrimp stew and that it came out so good! What a great idea that Larry had, about adding the Andouille over cheese grits! And that is fabulous that you found some Tony's! You've got the secret ingredient now!
Merci beaucoup for the great compliments, mon amie! You're most welcome! Love you, too!

Joanne- You cannot imagine how charged-up it is, here! And with Mardi Gras on top of the BIG WIN, it's off the charts! Thanks, cher!

Kat- Awesome is right, girlfriend! I am hoarse from yelling my fool head off! Glad you're a Saints fan, too! Long live the Saints and the Who Dat nation!!!

Go Saints! The recipe you gave for crawfish dip was incredible. Glad I made a a lot as I'm bringing it to bunco tonight. Had to force myself not to scoop it all up with my fingers.

I don't know the first thing about football--but that cake!!! So festive, and I bet it was delicious too.

We had a great time watching the games. I like it and what I really liked the most is the food during the break!

Marguerite said...

Ma Lou- Merci beaucoup! I wish that you could be, too! And right in the middle of Mardi Gras, too!

Ellen- It's not too late! You could go to Galveston for Mardi Gras! I love the Galveston celebration and have been several times. Enjoy!

Carol- Thanks, cher! I am so happy that you tried the recipe and that you liked it! Woo-Hoo! WE DAT!

sanjeet- It is great! Thanks for the nice thoughts and for coming by!

Dave- Fun doesn't even begin to describe it, cher! Great, but you should have bet more! Me, too!

Helena- So good to hear from you! It means that the New Orleans Saints are the BEST in the world! Thanks, it was a blast!

GO SAINTS! whoohoooo~ YEAH~

GMR and I were watching the video - Laughing! - nowhere else like South Louisiana!

Katherine Aucoin said...

How exciting that the Saints won. I watch the parade on CNN. I still tear up when they show the footage of Brees holding his son and crying just a little bit.

BTW, since I've been in NYC, everyone tells me congrats about the the Saints - they love them up here!

I'm still on a SAINTS high!
