Happy Mardi Gras

February 12, 2013

So…the kids (and I) love King Cake. Normally, we simply purchase one. However, I was lucky enough to have found this box mix at World Cost Market. I was not certain it was going to taste any good, but I was certain the kids were going to love making their own this year. However, admittedly come this afternoon (even after my nap), there was a part of me that was really wishing I had simply snuck over to the local donut shop (before 4:00 p.m.) and picked up one of their mini King Cakes. But no…alas, I had to pull myself from my nap to help the kids make this bread that did indeed have to rise two times, bake, and cool before we could eat it.

In the end, I’m so thankful we made this one. I sincerely hope we can find this mix next year.

(However, should we not…I think I’ll give a college friend’s recipe a try. Check it out at SometimesMarthAlwaysMary.)

We all LOVED eating it just a little warm in the center and oh so gooey and creamy. Gotta love that brown sugar praline filling. Oh my!

Happy mardi gras all!!

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. The kids and I are adding a decade of the rosary to our morning routine and giving up either chocolate or soda. Katie has decided to alternate with something different each week. Michael has decided that since he doesn’t really like chocolate anyway (news to me) that he’s going to give up chocolate for the next 40 days. As for myself, I’m shooting for both!

On another note…still no baby. Appointment tomorrow afternoon. I think I’ll tease him for thinking that I was never going to make it through the weekend. Still here. Still growing this little girl and still wondering when she’ll make her appearance. God willing all will be well when she does. Keep praying for us please! God bless your Lent!
