So, while I was hyped up on sugar from the second, better batch of pralines, I made King Cake for the first time. It was a cinnamon roll dough for the bread machine. The recipes I consulted said to divide the dough in two. Next time I will not do that, and have one big ring. I could not capture all the mess in one photo. I now have Iko Iko in my head. Darn, forgot the props. Most of my Mardi Gras beads have names of Harrah's casinos on them. The only time I threw beads off a French Quarter balcony was during the American Library Assocation conference in 2006. BTW, I think that both Muffin and the tomato plants have grown some more.
I liked this one, though I also watched Dr. John and the Grateful Dead
