The faithful green Crock Pot made us some delicious Red Beans and Sausage which was served over rice. Brown rice for those who wanted to seem healthy, white for those who wanted to be authentic.
Boudain is a soft cajun sausage made with pork, liver, rice, spices and probably stuff I don't want to know about. It is already cooked and just needs to be warmed a little , then squeezed out and served on saltine crackers. Personally, the liver in it makes it repulsive to me, but several in the office adore it, so it turns up in our fridge from time to time.
We also had salad and some other various items, but the King Cake was the real treat of the day. It was made by our fairy godmother, Andrew's mom. Lauren and I were going to make them, but he volunteered his mom to do it, and she did a beautiful job. Above, Margene shows it off like a Price is Right model.
