    beignets would be mine......how could you not like a bit of fried dough covered in powdered sugar..they were heavy ....just plain heavy....

    which is sad i always look forward to going to new orleans and of course everyone who is new wants to go to the cafe du monde and its not like you can order anything else.

    Seriously, years ago sis really talked up the Red Velvet Cake at a particular restaurant.
    Ugh. It was like chewing on shag carpet.
