Laissez les bon temps rouler

Originally I was planning on making this on the egg but a snow storm came through and made me retreat indoors. Now I very easily could have stayed outside and used the great thermal properties of the egg like many of my northern egghead friends. But when we see just a hint of a snow or rather ice storm here in Oklahoma we close everything down and stay indoors until the sun melts everything the next day... 

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities and I figured that out when one of my best friends went to the University of New Orleans, so when she lived there I made as many trips there as I could. I love the culture, music, but most of all the food! So Mardi Gras is always a fun time for me, being in Louisiana or not. 

I decided to get out my Howard Mitcham Creole Gumbo and All That Jazz cookbook and found a Jambalaya recipe worthy of Fat Tuesday. 

The only thing not pictured were the chicken thighs that I gave a good dusting of Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom and seared in the Le Creuset to get the party started. 

I also decided to try and make a King Cake and used a Emeril Recipe 

I am not a baker by any means but after reading it and knowing the good results I have gotten with pizza dough I figured why not..

Here is the little adventure the baby took to get into the King Cake:



I went to three stores and nobody had purple sugar oh well I think it still came out good with just green and gold. 

Who is going to get it?

We have a winner!! 

It was a fun day filled with Abita beer and Hurricanes as well as a tasty jambalaya and a king cake to end the day!

    Thanks @henapple @Chubbs @Parallel Since I could not make it down to NOLA this year I wanted to have a little fun at home. 

    @Plano_JJ Abita Amber is one of my favorites, I haven't had the Restoration Pale Ale before and it was pretty good too. I like trying their seasonal stuff as well, but we don't get much of that at the liquor stores I frequent.
