The original French market coffee stand, Cafe Du Monde, serves cafe au lait and hot beignets (french doughnuts) in the french market of New Orleans since 1862. If you've ever been to New Orleans, you have most likely had Beignets. They remind me of fried dough, very addictive. I've been working from home due to the pandemic, and have extra time in the morning so I have been organizing cupboards, closets, etc. I found this box of Beignet mix that we received as a gift and never used. It expires in April 2020, had to use it up. We are supposed to be attending a wedding in New Orleans in September 2020 but I question if that is going to happen. Here's a couple photos from our last trip to New Orleans for my sisterinlaw's 60th birthday. We certainly took traveling for granted, and look forward to when we can travel again. 

Au revior, N'awlins!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. What a fun place for your family to celebrate a birthday. Yes, love that city and this famous spot for breakfast or anytime. Yes to travel, missing our trips.........

  2. Our family was in New Orleans, after a cruise, Debbie, and yes we went to Cafe du Monde and had the wonderful beignets. I hope you get to attend the September wedding.
    Happy Mother’s Day! ❤️

  3. Those look so tasty, Deb! We haven't been to New Orleans in a very, very long time but remember the trip fondly. Cafe du Monde is a must. Somehow everything tastes better there :)


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
