SATURDAY MORNING BEIGNETS & DAYDREAMING





I have never made Beignets, those little square doughnuts. I never thought they would ever taste like the ones at The Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans. But the beignets that I made from the mix actually do have that wonderful flavor. Marie's friend Pia brought the mix from New Orleans when she visited our house for Thanksgiving. Served super warm with powdered sugar and hot steamy coffee, I felt like I was sitting in the French Quarter mapping out my day's destinations in the Crescent City.
