Personal Notes:
This was a special treat that Grandma made for us many days after school. At the time,our family was living in the little house at the back of Grandma's property. When I would get off the bus, I could smell the beignets as soon as I got close to the door. I would enjoy this treat and visiting with Grandma and telling her about my school day. She always wanted to know the "news" or if there was any new gossip to share.
