When the Saints go marching....

They win their first EVER Super Bowl!!

We had a Mardi Gras Super Bowl party in honor of Mardi Gras and the Saints playing in the Super Bowl. Just so happened that Nathan's team was in the Super Bowl too - Colts. Now I like sports and really enjoy football but truly find it so boring to watch on TV. I prefer to watch just about any sport live, in action, and cheering with fans. This being said Super Bowl is really the only time of the year that I will actually watch Sports on TV. Well, besides the Olympics.

Super Bowl day came and Nathan and I had a discussion about who I "cheer" for. I say I cheer for the Chiefs because I was born in Kansas City but if I were to be honest, I probably should be cheering the Saints on. Especially since Louisiana is the state that I have lived the longest in my entire life. I mean I LOVE Louisiana - the food, culture, people, history, and the list goes on and on. However I just can't seem to say Who Dat or wear Black and Gold. So for now I say go Chiefs and even screamed it out once during the Super Bowl LOL!!!!

The party was amazing. Food was beyond delicious - Red Beans and Rice, Beignets, King Cakes (cherry and cream cheese), Jambalya, Natchitoches Meat Pies, and so much more. I am so thankful for all our friends who could come out and celebrate Louisiana, Mardi Gras, and the Super Bowl with us. I did feel bad for my hubby not being able to celebrate for his team on a victory but I was thrilled for Louisiana - Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

1st time to make meat pies - they were so good!!!
Do need to work on presentation though
