New Orleans Nuggets

Beignets for breakfast. I walked to Cafe du Monde after Mass today, waited in line, and ate all three (they comes in threes - very Trinitarian) while walking back.

Tonight I took my graduate student to dinner to celebrate surviving his first talk at a national meeting on his research. We walked to Cafe du Monde after dinner. If you're counting, that would 4 beignets for the day. Stay tuned. Will I get up early enough tomorrow to walk down for some?


  1. Oh, have fun in NOLA. AAR was there when I was (very) pregnant with Nicholas and I remember giving the chalice on Sunday morning at the cathedral....

  2. Okay, I’ve had it.

    First, black dresses selling sexual enhancements. Now, nuggets from Mardi Gras.

    If you really cared about the world, you’d tell the director of the new, “Dune” to quit using fluid mechanics to describe how Frank Herbert’s worms move through sand, and, get that director back to what really counts, the Great Smokey Dragon!

    Unless you want surface chemists to get all the credit?

    What is your position on this? -- your location?



  3. Not far from Cafe du Monde is a place I think called the Central Market - it's the grocery store where Muffelata sandwiches had their beginning (I think that is how you spell it) - they are pretty darn good.

    I have been to the Cafe du Monde several times - one way to become highly caffeinated!

  4. Oh, I sure do hope you got some more. Beignets that is.

    Can there BE too many beignets?

    I think not!
