When I peeked in Gollum's blog, today's Foodie Friday has a theme, "April in Paris". How lucky am I to have gone to a creole seafood place with a French name and I ordered something aptly called Mardi Gras? It may not Paris French, but definitely a Southern kind of French. I can live with that! LOL
I also made sure that they had their own feeder each. but look, instead of a feeder, in defiance, they decided to use them as bath basins! Birdbrains! ;-)
Then one of them got off and started talking to his friend.
I think just like the others in Blogland, they are planning an escape!They actually got as far as the chair before I caught them again. I talked them into helping me with one more tablescape and though they agreed, they weren't happy with it and now, they've gone and camouflaged themselves in my white tablecloth. That's ok, I'll flush them out soon since I have my Easter tablescape to do tomorrow... I wonder where they'll be on the 15th!
I wonder what they're planning... I asked them not to run away like the others are doing in other blogs, but I forgot that Tablescape Thursday was coming up and I did the unthinkable, I asked them to be in it! They obliged as you saw yesterday, though I think they were just there to warm up against the trinket boxes and admire my new china. ;-) Well, now I can't find them! Even poor hubby helped and they weren't on the table anymore! (sigh) At least I know they're in the house...
Ok, back to Pappadeaux, I ordered a plated of their "Pasta Mardi Gras" ($16)- a veritable plate of crawfish, shrimp, crab, creamy tomato sauce, portobellos and andouille sausages on a bed of linguini! It is deli-cious! Yummy! See here's my proof that it's a big portion! I made this table for dear old hubby. He loved it, too and so appreciated the placesetting. Gotta love that man! He loves airplanes so I made the napkin look like a plane! I just love the trinket boxes I found at Big Lots, they have such a romantic air to them when a lit candle is placed inside... I used one for him because I just love using each one! ;-)
I added some parsley to bring out the contours of each shrimp.
I had fun sharing a restaurant review with you today! It is rare that I go out to lunch with friends so when I have a great experience while with a great friend like Amy, it makes it that much more memorable!
Michael Lee, thank you again for hosting another great week of deliciousness!
