Second Sunday Supper - Mardi Gras Style: Gumbo, King Cake, etc.

I can't believe I haven't been documenting our Second Sunday Supper events! That all ends now...
Last year, Salt and I made a New Year's resolution to host a dinner party at least once a month.  We even went so far as to do what Saturday Night Live did and completely own a particular day...and Second Sunday Soup was born. We switched to Second Sunday Supper when the warm weather made soups a bit less appealing and that name stuck. year and a couple months later, we are still at it. This month was Mardi Gras/New Orleans themed. We had a smaller group this month, which was fine considering we were pretty worn out.

I made a pretty traditional Creole Gumbo with sausage, shrimp and smoked oysters. Salt made fresh biscuits and blondies with M&M's to represent Mardi Gras beads.
Robyn made a very delicious Bananas Foster cake - think pineapple upside down cake, but with bananas instead of pineapple.

Carmen made a King Cake, but with no plastic baby inside. 
Next month theme is still undecided, but we're hoping for something "springy".
