CONTINGENT:-Mardi-Gras Cajun-Creole Get-Together at Irisarbor House Sun Feb 23; 3-7ish

Hi all, 
This will be a re-awakening of the Mardi Gras cajun-creole musical (I hope) food exchange-fest I have previous hosted for LTH friends
(here is a link to a previous versions:http://www.lthforum.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=365590#p365590
this party, I'm hoping for a Roadfood crossover (bit I am also inviting some LTH friends)
I will be making my semi-famous Jambalaya

You should make or bring something Cajun, Creole or something to drink or snack onJust post what you want to bring so we can keep it balanced.My house is not gigantic, so we should probably not let it get much beyond 35ish people.

My husband will likely round up some musician types for some music, so if you play,bring your instrument along. (we already have a baby grand), and many guitars.
Recap: it will be Sun Feb 23, from 3-7 ishWe are in Deerfield, off Deerfield Rd between Edens and 294, and 0.5mi from the Deerfield Metra station.
I will PM address to attendees ahead of time.

    The date is marked on our calendar and we're digging out our beads.  Do Collard Greens qualify as a suitable Mardi Gras dish?  We've got a killer recipe/method of preparation.

    You might do well to send PMs to some of the Milwaukee members who don't visit Roadfood quite as frequently as they used to.

    irisarbor - my Jan-Feb issue of Louisiana Cookin magazine is devoted entirely to Mardi Gras party food and king cake recipes - I'm terrible at posting links, but you might find them by googling their website.

    Mr. Maki and I are in!  I'll figure out what I'm making/bringing.  Is the LTHer who makes paczkis coming?  If not, I might bring some from Bennison's.  I don't want to step on anyone's paczkis. :-)

    Elaine, thanks for the invitation. I'm pretty sure I can make it but with all that's going on right now, I'll have a better idea after the first of the month.

    This is looking like an awesome get-together- we will have at least 4-5 musicians to play some tunes,
    and many great cooks bringing good things to eat
    I've had some affirmatives from some of you, but would love for a few more "Contingenteers" to join in...

    Thanks to all who cooked, and played, and ate, and came and enjoyed!
    We had such a great time and really enjoyed having everyone.
    I had such good photography intentions.
    I got out my real camera, charged it up, and put it on the counter.
    Between playing hostess, eating, drinking, and enjoying the music, 
    I'm afraid I didn't remember to take one single picture.
    I blame the jello shots.

    If any took any- please post if you have time.
    Thanks again- great friends=great times

    I'm so sorry I couldn't make it.  I would love to see pictures too; I want some salt rubbed in.  Just what I'm into.
