Let the Good Times Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, it’s Carnival time!!!
I enjoyed spending time with my dad’s side of the family on Mardi Gras because they knew how to party. New Orleans is such a unique place. Following the Mardi Gras Indians, second line at Orleans & Claiborne, food on the grill, and dancing in the streets.
On Mardi Gras day my family would pack up the grill and the food they prepared the night before and head out to the parade route 7:00am….yes, am. We couldn’t miss the Zulu parade which starts around 8:30am. Different parades run all day long, so we had to bring food and make it a picnic. We had sandwiches, red beans & rice, hot dogs, hamburgers, bbq ribs, chicken, jambalaya and sometimes crawfish (depends on what day the season falls on). This reminds me of Mardi Gras.
