Are you around? Or are you already in Nola?

I thought you might get a kick out of this. My dad calls me this morning.. he always sends me two king cakes every year. One is for my office and one is for home. He usually orders them right before the new year, as soon as the bakeries start taking orders. So this morning.. he wants me to be thinking about when I want them sent, because I might want the one for the office right before Mardi Gras like normal, but maybe I want the one for home right before Super Bowl Sunday. I love how optimistic he is! Wink

  • I'm still a Seattle girl. We fly to NOLA on Christmas Day.

    I love your dad's genius. You should tell him you've given it some thought and you may need 2 for home.  Wink

  • Northbend?!

    Think of the salsa commercial where they say, "New York City?!"

    Do they still have North Bend Pizza? They had a deep dish that was really good.

    Mmm, all this talk of food is making me hungry.

  • yes, it really is just like that salsa commercial!! the first time i bought a king cake at the bakery in n.bend, they warned me like three times, "now, there is a plastic baby in there, don't eat it." i'm all like yes... i know. no really, i understand there is a baby in there. but i really stumped them when i asked if they were going to offer any filled king cakes.

    i don't know if there is a n.bend pizza... we don't get pizza a lot, but when we do we order from frankies.
