Mardi Gras Style!

Today is Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday!) and it brings back lots of fond memories of college in San Luis Obispo...where the kids there were accustomed to dancing on the streets-New Orleans Style.  Those days are long gone, but I thought it would be fun to get inspired by the colors.


Amazing artichokes
