Here I sit, in the middle of my life, taking a moment to contemplate and remember Beignet. Who’s with me? Thanks to my Dad, I have a bit of the Nawwleans in me. My Grandma used to always make these for us, AND, in high school, when we went to visit, we got to go to Cafe Du Monte and EAT THEM. Sweet. Essentially, they are deep- fried doughy doughnut friends covered in powdered sugar, and I like them, for nostalgia and also yum-related reasons.
