When I started asking around about things we should do during our one full day in New Orleans, it became clear that Cafe du Monde should be high on our list. We set out in the morning determined to get those delicious beignets!
I was a little discouraged when I saw the line of people out the door and down the street, but I remembered what my friend Kim told me: don’t fret when you see the line…it moves fast…those beignets are worth the wait.
Sure enough, the line did move quickly, and in about ten minutes we were sitting at a table anxiously awaiting those powdered sugar-covered pillows of deep-fried dough.
E. loved the beignets, of course, although they were a bit messy. As soon as she picked up her first beignet, she turned it upside down and powdered sugar was everywhere. Oh well. C’est la vie!
