Mmm, Beignets

Beignets are delicious, especially when they are piping hot, are covered in powdered sugar, and come from a vendor at the Crawfish Fest…although I hear they are much more amazing at the famous Cafe du Monde in New Orleans.  Still, these frittery treats tasted quite good on this particular morning as we prepared for a long day of serving drinks with the local volunteer firefighters.

Crawfish Fest – High & Mighty Brass Band

It’s Crawfish Fest this weekend at the nearby Sussex County Fairgrounds, and Heather and I are looking forward to another year of helping the Frankford Fire Department serve healthy amounts of adult beverages.  Crawfish Fest is a combination of great music, delicious New Orleans food, and a really fun and good-spirited atmosphere…if you’re not doing anything today, come check it out (www.crawfishfest.com).

This photo was taken last year as one of the bands, High & Mighty Brass Band, was walking through the fairgrounds on the way to their show.  They developed a nice train of followers and played a great set of music right behind the area where we were working.  They’re not on the billing for this year, but there are a lot of excellent bands on the schedule!

Valentine’s Day, Crawfish-Style

With Mardi Gras only a week ago, I thought I would get into the spirit a bit early.  Heather and I were enjoying wearing our beads at last year’s Crawfish Fest in northern New Jersey while serving drinks to the masses.  Lots of people gave us compliments…although I think I got the bulk of the comments for the one necklace I was wearing…  The Crawfish Fest is always a long weekend of work, but we’re glad to provide a helping hand…and also eat beignets and alligator sausage!

We were probably a bit dirty/grimy/tired when this photo was taken near the end of the day, but we still managed to look happy together!  So Happy Valentine’s Day, Heather!
