I made a healthy dinner tonight does that justify making these New Orleans beignets for dessert? Being mardi gras I figured that today was a good day to try these out, I found the recipe here. I made a simple chocolate sauce to go with them – celebration!
Tomorrow lent begins, I haven’t chosen something to give up, but my husband gave me a new book Shaped by the Cross: Meditations on the suffering of Jesus by Ken Gire to read during the lenten season. I always enjoy authors spiritual reflections on art, in this case Michelangelo’s Pieta.
