This morning I woke up with the urge to make beignets, even though I had just cleaned my stove and frying anything will get messy. I didn't have any beignet mix on hand, so I turned to the Internet for a recipe. But it turns out that making beignets from scratch is seriously complicated stuff. Recipes I found called for yeast, evaporated milk, or even cooking the dough on the stove top before frying it. No, thank you. A $3.99 box of Cafe Du Monde Beignet mix is totally worth it. I bundled myself up, looking like a bag lady I might add, and drove the mile to Publix for the mix. Two cups of beignet mix, 7 fl. oz. of water, a little flour, some oil, and a lot of powdered sugar are how I keep my man interested.
