When you finish that breakfast treat go right down the street to the Central Grocery and enjoy a Muffuletta and a couple of cold beers for lunch, it is the real deal

Take cabs and stay out of the red light side of Bourbon and you'll be fine.

Although I'm sure they pale in comparison to real New Orleans beignets, one of the pluses of living in Orlando is being close to Disney, and therefore the Port Orleans resort. The wife and I have been known to head out there for Sunday morning breakfast of beignets, an omelet, and coffee.

Oh my. Beignets.

My my my...

Something about a plate of beignets, powdered sugar all over your shirt and a cuppa at CDM on a spring morning down around New Orleans. It's just one of those things that there isn't anything else to compare it to.

Thx for the recipe.

My my my my my....

Note to first time beignet eaters.... Only eat on the exhale or you WILL suck down the powered suger into the lungs .... makes life fun when you do that

I have enjoyed this Thread, we got the coffee selected to go with the sweet beignets, lunch picked out and later we will work on dinner. But if we get up early and sit on the edge of the Mighty MS while watching the sunrise we need something to smoke with that fine first cup of CDM (always the best cup too). Suggestions for the perfect Coffee Cigar?

Dinner.... too easy

10 lbs of mudbugs each, red potatoes and corn on the cob that were cooked in the boil. Ice cold beer of your choice and a bowl of red beans and rice to wash it all down with.

Damn I miss good food
