This is my first Tea Time and I show up with coffee! Now, to set the record straight, I do love tea, all kinds of tea, from the traditional to the most bodacious herbal tea. Desiring not to incite the continuing debate as to cream first or tea, suffice to say I take my tea with Lemon or plain. Maybe, next Tea Time, I will show up with tea and my Limoges and pinky down.
The other day while in between appointments, I decided on a small treat for myself. Cafe Du Monde is famous in New Orleans and has been around since the 1800’s. One of their branch stores is located in my area and it is as good as the original.
Cafe Au Lait and Beignets what a special treat. There is no debate as to when to add the cream since both the scalding milk and coffee are added simultaneously. The Beignets were light and hot and covered with powdered sugar. It is beyond my understanding how it is every time I choose to eat these things I am wearing black pants and black sweater. I end up looking like a Dalmatian of sorts.
Here are a few photos of my afternoon snack. There is a short video included because I just loved the music. Hope you enjoy.
