The Beignet Mess

For Rachel, who was a bit embarrassed about blowing powdered sugar all over Disneyland's New Orleans. You are not alone, dear! Here's a rare sighting of me, eating on my blog.

The before:



And the aftermath *


* Actually, this is just our second order, so we're not quite finished yet. 8-} Mmm, what's not to love about beignets?!

Is it bad to admit that I've never had one?

But I have had funnel cake and experienced the powdered sugar explosion thereof. Does that count?

This is a red letter day - Not only do I get to see a photo of you but I get to see that I am not the only one who has problems with powdered sugar explosions! Wohoo!

Beth, I would not admit to that! But yes, funnel cakes are very, very close. Same ingredients, same great taste. But these are made without the funnel and just dropped by the blob into the hot vat of fat. Why did God make us crave such vile, disgusting stuff anyway?! Mmmm...

Rach, I couldn't wait to get home and share my pictures with you after reading your post...and I believe this may be the only picture I have of myself eating. You could not ask for a better picture of me. 8-}

Susie, it's deep fried batter, covered in powdered sugar, found mostly in N'awlins. And they are addicting!

I dunno...I think I'd eat spark plug if it had enough powdered sugar on it.

Hey, Lyn!! What are you doing around these parts? That's not really me, you know. ;-)

Eric, that reminds me of my brother eating Christmas light bulbs when we were children. They weren't even covered in powdered sugar, but I told him they were candy. 8-}

Forgive me, Father.

Oh, that's so bad! (Dang, I wish I'd thought of that when I was about 8.)

Spark plugs with powdered sugar are pretty good, actually. They have a place that sells 'em here in....

Hey, Jim! I think I know where you are, if Mapstats is worth anything at all. But I won't tell. And I've heard the sparkplugs there are awesome! ;-)

That Christmas lights story brings back a memory of something I told my brother. We had a volcano in our museum. I told him it was eatable so he picked some up and ate it. It turns out that he managed to pick up a candy someone had dropped so he believed you really could eat it LOL.

See there? Birds of a feather. Heh. Isn't it good to be the older sister? ;-)
