Diagnosis: Breast Cancer

I was just told this about 1 hour ago.  Mixed emotions and thoughts are an understatement!  I had the biopsy yesterday, results today.  I will be discussing next step with the physician on Monday. 

This new information gives me a different perspective of the yellow "LiveStrong" bracelet I have been wearing since 2005 as I went through my mother's losing battle with Lung Cancer.

Top Chef Season 4

One of my favorite show premiered tonight!  I love Top Chef!  Only one person of color this season – and they already told her to "pack your knifes and go!" because she lost the first challenge for over salting some freaking shrimp.

I already have a favorite or two. 1-2-3 TIVO!

The twist this season is a lesbian couple, Jennifer and Zoi.  Ummmm huh, this should be interesting…

Poppin Crawfish and Beignets in New Orleans

My 42nd Birthday was Sunday, Mar 2nd.  I'm celebrating in NOLA, one of my favorite places!  Main reason – FOOD!  I have been to New Orleans several time in my life, every time is a totally different food extravaganza :)  You don't visit NOLA without making a stop at Cafe Du Monde for their world famous Beignets and Chickory coffee.  What are Beignets?

From the Cafe Du Monde website:
Beignets were brought to Louisiana by the Acadians.  They were fried fritters, sometimes filled with fruit. Today, the beignet is a square piece of dough, fried and covered with powdered sugar. They are served in orders of three.

How do you eat Beignets?  Any way you want to!

Seafood is also a main staple in nawlins, and I LOVE seafoood!  We took the streetcar to the riverfront and I stopped off to twist/pop/suck/eat some crawfish.
