A very happy Mardi Gras to everyone out there in the æther!
The Lady and I are kicked back in Domaine Mojo listening, at the moment, to Percy Mayfield's River's Invitation. Now it's Etta James doing Ohh Poo Paa Doo! Oh, it's going to be that kind of night.
In the kitchen, I've got a pot of gumbo simmering. It's got andouille, Bilbao chorizo, duck confit, onions, red peppers, celery, garlic and a killer roux. Chicken stock. Herbs and spices. And after it's simmered for a few hours, I'm going to add shrimp.
Now, Meade Lux Lewis is doing the Celeste Bounce. Top that. I dare you.
In the meantime, The Lady and I, along with Java and Wednesday, wish everyone out there a fantastic Mardi Gras.
I'm of the opinion, that like Halloween, every day should be Mardi Gras...
Laissez les bon temps roulez! Et toi!
