Seemed we just celebrated a Happy Birthday to the Eternal King, and today's birthday is Elvis, "The King of Rock and Roll.' In New Orleans, on Jan. 6th, it's known as King's Day or the 12th night, and we begin to start rolling out the 'king cakes
to introduce to the entire world, that Mardi Gras season is beginning !! Soon parades will be rolling, and bayoubabe will hit the streets and party with the best of them !
Whether the 'kings' of this world are celebrities, athletes, crowned heads, or tycoons, they come and go. Their influence may be immense, and their followers fanatically loyal, but it doesn't last forever. I think one of the many things we do unique down here in New Orleans, is that the kids are out of school for an ENTIRE WEEK during the Mardi Gras Holiday. What a blast !!
Now if someone could only invent a low-carb king cake ?? Perhaps one exists !
For breakfast this morn, I had Jimmie Dean Sausages on wheat bread.
For lunch, I had a grilled chicken salad. It was yummy.
