A Beignet Too Far–My Personal Fat Tuesday

Treme Celebrating My Personal Fat Tuesday (Photograph: R. Peters)

It was the last beignet that put me over.  I have been walking along the edge for days. Today it was the Camellia Grill in the French Quarter for breakfast, a Muffeletta from Central Grocery for lunch, and Café Du Monde this afternoon. I need an intervention.

Leaving Atlanta last Tuesday for Seattle, flying to New Orleans overnight on Friday/Saturday and now on the final night of the trip before heading home, I have eaten and eaten and eaten. From a Space Needle Rotating Restaurant calorie fest to a lovely brunch at Windsor Court to an amazing lunch Commander’s Palace, the world has been my buffet. And tonight it has to stop. It is late to give up something for Lent, but here goes…

Goodbye, Overindulgence, my old friend.

    There is no such thing a “too far” at the Cafe’ Du Monde.

    I’ve been known to do one too many beignets at Cafe Du Monde.
