Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

Not from Louisiana. Not even a Catholic.

None the less, there is a King cake on the counter at work that won't be there much longer at the rate the staff is eating it--and another one at home. More about this on the Library Lady Cooks blog.

Lovely fun! And Johnette Downing is great. She's been to Seattle before, and I'm lobbying to get her to return.
