Drinkin’ champagne on a choo-choo train

Scott woke up this morning with a fever and had to stay home from work. He’s currently asleep on the couch, so I’m just donking around online and eating a bastardized muffaletta – homemade Italian bread with various deli meats and cheese, Alton Brown’s olive tapenade, and mustard that we bought at Findlay Market. The jar says that it’s “Zydeco mustard,” so, you know, festive. I made a king cake, complete with baby, but it’s still cooling so it’s not decorated (and therefore photoworthy) yet; also, the purple sugar I tried to make came out looking like grayish-green gravel somehow, so it’s just going to be green and yellow. Guh.

Laissez les bon temps rouler, all right.

  1. oh my god, you made a king cake?! i am so envious. I wanted to do that this year and did not. how did it turn out?

    The recipe was weird. The cake part pretty much turned out like a giant cinnamon roll, which was OK, but the icing was kinda runny and gross. 😦 I’m going to need to plan ahead next year and find a better recipe.
